Manchester United are weighing up the possibility of signing Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho, according to a report from the Guardian’s Jamie Jackson. The 19-year-old England international has struggled in Germany of late, and was most recently hauled off in the first half of a 4-0 drubbing against Bayern Munich. Dortmund may well be considering cashing in.

However, if United are to try and sign Sancho, they’re sure to face stiff competition from an array of Europe’s top clubs. Liverpool and Real Madrid are said to be interested in signing the versatile attacker, who normally features out on the right flank but is capable of doing a job on the left.

Of course, an attacker isn’t really United’s current transfer priority, but Sancho appears to be the kind of talent worth going for anyway. Signing him would be all the sweeter given he spent two years of his career at Manchester City before forcing a move to Dortmund in 2017.

Dortmund currently sit sixth in the Bundesliga table, two points adrift of third-placed Bayern, and six off league leaders Borussia Mönchengladbach.
