Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho has been linked with a move to the Premier League and Manchester United are the clear front-runners to sign him this summer.
Sancho has been tipped to return to England and the Red Devils are reportedly leading the race to make him a record signing. According to journalists Fabrizio Romano and Sam Pilger, the 20-year-old is moving closer to joining Man United.
Jadon Sancho is moving closer to #MUFC; Dortmund are willing sellers, the player wants the move and personal terms are not a problem. It’s now about agreeing a fee both clubs can be happy with.

Dortmund are willing to cash in on the club’s top scorer and the winger wants the move as well. All that is left is for the two clubs to reach an agreement over a fee with which they are both happy.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that Sancho is the missing piece in the puzzle in order for his team to challenge for silverware once again.
Solskjaer knows he has a problem on the right flank, as Daniel James has struggled for consistency. Sancho could be a total game-changer, as the 20-year-old has scored 20 goals and created 18 assists in 46 games in all competitions this season.
While United haven’t necessarily struggled at the top of the pitch, as Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood have been in prolific form since the Premier League restarted last month, there is no doubt that the Borussia Dortmund winger could make a massive difference.
The Red Devils are ready to hand him the number seven shirt worn by the likes of Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo during their time at Old Trafford.
Although these are big boots to fill, he should be more than up for the challenge, as he has already established himself as a regular England international.
United fans, do you think Jadon Sancho will move to the Theatre of Dreams this summer? Let us know down below!
