According to the latest reports, Borussia Dortmund made a shock and audacious attempt to sign this exciting Manchester United star in exchange for Sancho.

Wonder-kids are often prized possessions. They are sealed in bubble wrap and coddled in order to protect their price and status. Manchester United target, Jadon Sancho is not a timid character but he is experiencing a similar treatment at Borussia Dortmund.

He grew up amidst poverty in London and played street football in the cages. Even in his short career, Sancho had often made bold and valiant decisions.

His move to Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City was certainly one of them.

On the pitch, Sancho is the type to make risks. He is the master of deceit. The type who will pull off audacious tricks and make plucky runs into the opposition’s box, slaloming past defenders as if they were practise cones and making his opponents seem foolish.

Nonetheless, despite his bold character, Borussia Dortmund are protective over their young star. The German side value him highly, and they know Sancho could be one of the best talents they have ever had at the Signal Iduna Park. Someone who is already being touted in the same ilk as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, despite having only just turned 20 and who already matches up with the two legends at the same age.

United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who are desperate to find a new hero for the Stretford End and a star to lead them out of the abyss, are logically keen to bring Sancho to Old Trafford in the summer.

He seems like the natural replacement for the legends who have now faded into memories at Old Trafford.

Negotiations have been purportedly ongoing between the German side and the Red Devils for some time.

And according to ESPN via Manchester Evening News, Dortmund made a shock demand from United in order to wrap up the deal.

ESPN claim Borussia Dortmund wanted Mason Greenwood plus cash in exchange for Jadon Sancho.

Greenwood, who is slowly becoming a fan favourite, is one of the brightest prospects at Old Trafford. One Solskjaer will be reluctant to lose from his grasp. Just like Sancho is coddled at Dortmund, Mason Greenwood is extremely valued by United.

And therefore, according to ESPN, United ‘adamantly refused’ the proposal by Dortmund.
