Manchester United’s pursuit of Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho has been handed a major boost after the player decided where he wants to continue his career
One of the most sought-after forwards, the 19-year-old boasts some intimidating figures, having racked up 17 goals and 19 assists in 35 appearances across all competitions this term.
Sancho’s blistering form this season has made him one of the most wanted properties in Europe, with United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, and Barcelona all looking to snap up his services.
While Dortmund plan to do everything in their power to keep hold of the coveted winger, Manchester United and other suitors are ready to spend a fortune to get a deal for Sancho over the line.
But, the BVB’s hopes of retaining the England international suffered a blow, as he already set his sights on a Premier League move when the transfer window reopens, as per the Daily Express.

Sancho’s affection for England’s top-tier has put United and other Premier League sides on red alert, with the Red Devils reportedly frontrunners for the youngster’s signature.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to recruit a world-class forward to back his bid to restore the Old Trafford outfit to Europe’s royalty, and the player’s preference goes to his aid.
United are thought to be preparing a massive offer to tempt Dortmund into selling as soon as the transfer window reopens, as they see the Manchester City academy graduate as a long-term solution for the right-wing position.
But, the other competitors will try to complicate things for United, with Chelsea also putting together a substantial offer to lure Sancho to Stamford Bridge.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are also in the picture, as both La Liga powerhouses look to overhaul their respective squads at the end of the season.
