Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly go head-to-head with Real Madrid for the highly-rated Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho next summer
The Red Devils hold a long-standing interest in the former Manchester City youth academy product, but they’ve so far failed to convince Dortmund to give the green light to the deal.
Sancho has matured into a standout performer at the Signal Iduna Park after arriving from City as a wonderkid back in summer 2017.
The 19-year-old’s rise to the stardom has also seen his price tag raising up to £120million after several of Europe’s big guns expressed their admiration for him.
After missing out on his signature in the summer, Manchester United will now face a formidable challenge of Paris Saint-Germain, who have recently joined the race for Sancho, according to the Daily Express.
With Neymar’s future remaining up in the air, the Parisians will not take chances and have already put the lightning-fast Sancho at the top of their wishlist.
There’s no doubt that PSG can meet Dortmund’s high demands, especially if Neymar ends up moving back to Barcelona at the end of the season.
Although the Bundesliga giants have been adamant that their gem will not leave the club ahead of the start of the season, the Englishman’s untouchable status has changed since.
The youngster has fallen out of favor with Lucien Favre after turning up late for a team meeting following the previous international break and has been struggling for regular first-team action ever since.
