Manchester United could face competition for their main target.

For months, Manchester United fans have gleamed at the prospect of Jadon Sancho donning the Red Devils shirt. They have pored their desires all over social media and have fantasised about what it would be like for Sancho to line-up for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side.

You can hardly blame them for the excitement. Jadon Sancho is the hottest property in world football at the moment. There is no one better and more exciting. Sancho already has 20 goals and 20 assists in all competitions for Borussia Dortmund and there are still numerous games to play.

Possessing frightening pace as well as impeccable skill and vision, Jadon Sancho has all the attributes to go right to the very top of the footballing pyramid. His name has already been tipped as the one to take on the baton from the Messi and Ronaldo supremacy which has dominated football for over a decade.

And of course because of his pedigree, Man United are not the only club vying for Jadon Sancho’s services.

According to AS via the Daily Mail, Real Madrid have also entered the race to sign Jadon Sancho.

With the Spanish giants desperate to fill the void left behind by Cristiano Ronaldo, it is no surprise they have targeted the English international.

The lure of Real Madrid is often hard to resist, though Jadon Sancho might be tempted by the familiar surroundings United can offer him, having grown in Manchester before making a move abroad to further his career.

One thing for certain is a lot will hinge on Man United making the top four in the Premier League and qualifying for the Champions League for next season. Jadon Sancho is a supreme talent and he is unlikely to consider moving to a club that is not playing in Europe’s elite competition.

Real Madrid look more likely to make the Champions League than the Red Devils, though Man United also stand with a good chance if they can continue their impressive momentum prior to the suspension of the football.

The summer promises to be a crucial one in terms of determining Jadon Sancho’s future, United fans will be hoping the English international opts with the Red Devils.

The prospect of United lining up with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood as well as Jadon Sancho is an enticing one. And the quintet has the potentially to finally topple the Liverpool and Manchester City hegemony in England.
