Man Utd may fail to sign Jadon Sancho this summer because of one player | Football | Sport

Manchester United have been joined by Bayern Munich in the race to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund in this summer’s transfer window, reports say. And it’s stated that, if the Bundesliga side see a move for Leroy Sane as unfeasible, the German giants would go after the 20-year-old. Sancho has dazzled this season, scoring 14 league goals and clocking up 15 assists along the way.

Manchester United are hoping to sign Sancho, with the club currently frontrunners in the race to sign the Borussia Dortmund star.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer views a transfer deal to be of paramount importance having first tried to sign the 20-year-old last summer.

United also tried to sign Sancho when he left Manchester City in 2017, only for the youngster to decide to move to the Westfalenstadion to boost his chances of regular game time.

Now, they’re hoping to finally land the Dortmund star when the transfer window reopens.

Yet ESPN claim they’ve been joined by Bayern in the race to sign the winger, despite the club’s fierce rivalry with Dortmund.

It’s claimed that Sane could actually hold the key to Bayern going after Sancho at the end of the campaign.

They want to sign the Manchester City star and have reportedly promised him the No 10 shirt, worn by legendary winger Arjen Robben throughout his time at the Allianz Arena.

But if Sane doesn’t join, Bayern are ready to join United in the race for Sancho.

They’ve made a habit of signing players from Dortmund in recent years – starting with Mario Gotze in 2013.

The Germany international was a vital player for Dortmund under Jurgen Klopp but, in a bitter blow, he chose to move to the Allianz Arena.

“I think a lot of people look at young players taking time to develop.

“But if you look at players like Wayne Rooney and Jadon the great ones, the exceptional ones, they just figure it out.

“I think Jadon, like Wayne, you could put him in the middle of any League, in any country, and he thrives.”

Sancho’s Dortmund contract expires in 2022 and the club are determined not to lower their £100million valuation of the England international.

They’d make Bayern pay more, though, determined not to lose another asset to their fiercest rivals.
