Man United Determined To Beat Chelsea In Two-Way Fight For £120m Talent
Manchester United are determined to beat Premier League rivals, Chelsea, to the signing of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United and Chelsea are the only two clubs in the mix for the player.
Borussia Dortmund are resigned to losing his services this summer but they are determined to get a lot of money for the £120m-rated England international.
The 19-year-old is one of the best young players in European football.
His status was elevated at Borussia Dortmund whom he joined from Premier League giants Manchester City in the summer of 2017.
Manchester United wanted to sign Jadon Sancho last season but his German club were adamant that the winger won’t leave.
The Red Devils have not had an exciting winger like Jadon Sancho since the Sir Alex Ferguson era ended in 2013 and they have to fight off Chelsea to sign him.
Sancho could be the man to replace Real Madrid new recruit Eden Hazard at Chelsea after the Belgian international left the Blues for the Spanish capital at the start of the season in a deal reported to be around £100m.
Eden Hazard has not been able to pull his weight at Real Madrid and that’s down to several injury setbacks. Jadon Sancho could be an able replacement for Hazard at Chelsea.
The Three Lions of England star recently became the youngest player to score 25 goals in the German Bundesliga.
Jadon Sancho has scored 12 goals and 13 assists in 19 league matches in the colours of Borussia Dortmund.
In all competitions, he has scored 15 goals in addition to 14 assists in 29 games.
Sancho made his England debut almost two years ago during the UEFA Nations League clash at the home of Croatia which ended in a goalless draw.
The young England winger has scored twice in 12 appearances for his country.
