According to the latest reports, Manchester United have been given a major boost to land Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

At Manchester United they like to see silky wingers bursting down the flanks. The Stretford End have crowned and worshiped some of the best wingers in the club’s history, from George Best to Cristiano Ronaldo and Ryan Giggs.

At United they like players who can slalom past opponents with ease as if they weren’t even there. Players who get the fans off the edge of their seats. Players who make them cry out in delight. Players who make them drool with breathtaking skill.

Jadon Sancho is exactly that type of player.

More from Red Devil Armada

Football is a game of deceit. You have to fool your opponent, make them believe you are taking the ball one way and then take it the other way.

Very few players are masters of the trait.

Jadon Sancho however is one of the rare few who can outwit his opponents game after game.

Having honed his skills in the cages at London, Sancho’s skillset is ample. The England international has tormented Bundesliga opponents for a couple of years now.

And Sancho is on the precipice of his next move.

It’s no wonder, United are desperate to sign him. A player like Sancho will make the Stretford End gleam once more. Just like in the glory days under Ferguson and Busby.

If Jadon Sancho signs for United, he has the potential to become a player regarded in the same vein as the above mentioned Red Devils legends.

The only obstacle which stands in the club’s way is whether they will be able to lure Jadon Sancho from the Signal Iduna Park.

In that pursuit, United have received their most hopeful news yet.

According to the Daily Mirror, Borussia Dortmund have identified Ferran Torres as the man to replace Jadon Sancho at the German club and have already started ‘negotiations’ with the player.

With Dortmund already preparing for life after Sancho, United’s dream to have yet another winger to adore is a step closer to becoming a reality.

Of course many question marks remain, but there is no denying the Stretford End would love to see Sancho donning the famous Red Devils crest.
