Manchester United have been linked with a move for Jadon Sancho for a long time. It is no secret that they had tried to sign him last summer but a move failed to materialise as they could not match Borussia Dortmund’s valuation for the English winger, which is believed to have been €120 million.
But it does not look like the Red Devils have given up on their hopes of signing him though. As reported by 90 Min, they want to sign a right winger this summer and Sancho remains their first choice for the position.
After a slow start to the campaign, Sancho has rediscovered his form and put in some impressive numbers once again while striking up a brilliant partnership with Erling Haaland as well. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 12 goals and provided 16 assists in 33 appearances across all competitions.
Thus, it is not hard to see why Manchester United remain interested in signing the winger. And with his contract set to run out in the summer of 2023, making a deal happen might be easier this time around, especially if Borussia Dortmund fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Sancho could be a brilliant signing for Manchester United
Sancho has already proven himself in the Bundesliga as well as Europe and he is expected to be one of the best players of his generation.
Thus, if Manchester United are able to sign him, it should be seen as a massive coup on the part of the club. The Englishman will solve their issues at right wing immediately while he also has the potential to become one of the best in the Premier League for years to come.
Of course, it won’t be easy to sign a player like Sancho even if Borussia Dortmund are ready to let him leave though as there is expected to be a lot of interest in his signature.
