According to the latest reports, Jadon Sancho stunned Manchester United on his visit to the club’s training ground, Carrington.

At the Signal Iduna Park, the sight of Jadon Sancho performing a clever feint and scuttling through the thickets of defenders surrounding him has become almost the norm. The Manchester United target is blessed with ingenious talent and ability.

At just 20 years of age, Jadon Sancho has already proven himself to be one of the best wingers in the world.

His stats in the Bundesliga for Borussia Dortmund are mightily impressive. 90 games, 31 goals and 42 assists. If he continues on a similar trajectory the English international certainly has the ability to take on the baton from Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

It’s no wonder, Man United are desperate to lure Sancho to Old Trafford in the summer. The 20 year old impresses in every outing.

And United’s pursuit of Jadon Sancho could have begun years ago.

A recent report by the Daily Star has recited an impressive Jadon Sancho performance against the Red Devils back in 2016.

Back then Jadon Sancho was playing for United’s arch rivals Manchester City and in an U18 fixture at the club’s training ground, he tore United’s defence to shreds, ‘stunning’ the club’s official in the process.

At just 15 years of age, the Daily Star’s report claims Sancho was ‘crucial’ in helping City to secure a draw in the mini-derby and how he was a constant threat to United’s defence.

At the time, Scott McKenna was the club’s U18 coach who is now part of the first team set-up and that Sancho performance must have left an indelible mark.

Of course merely six months later, Sancho made the pioneering move to Germany which has paid huge dividends.

Now with the Red Devils keen to bring him to Old Trafford, it could be time for Sancho to make his return to Manchester.

The fact that he is an Manchester City academy product could rub many wounds in the Blues’ wounds too who lost Sancho’s talent for what is now regarded as pennies.
