England whizkid Jadon Sancho has enjoyed another magnificent season at Borussia Dortmund, but the German side are increasingly resigned to his summer exit
Manchester United are determined to beat Chelsea in the £120million battle to sign Jadon Sancho.
German giants Borussia Dortmund are ready to sell the England star if the price is right this summer and they are bracing themselves for a Premier League bidding war.
Chelsea are keen on the 19-year-old and are eyeing him up with Pedro and Willian both possible departures from Stamford Bridge this summer.
But United are battling hard to try and tempt Sancho back to English football as they believe they can edge out Chelsea in what has become a two-way fight between the Premier League giants.
United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has already made it clear they are ready to spend big this summer and Sancho is one of their prime targets.
Sancho has scored 12 goals and provided 13 assists this season and has established himself as one of the best young talents in Europe.
Ex-Manchester City academy graduate Sancho has been a huge hit in Dortmund but the German giants are already looking around for the next transfer target to replace him.
Dortmund have become renowned as one of the best clubs in Europe for spotting young players and enjoying huge success while developing them before selling for a big profit.
Sancho has already won 11 England caps and, after less than three years in Germany, has gone from being an £8million signing from City into being one of the most sought after and expensive players in Europe.
Dortmund know they can push above £100million – and are realistic enough to know they will have to sell at that price.
Chelsea did not buy in January and Frank Lampard expressed his frustration at a lack of recruitment but now they are ready to back him as they look to freshen up their squad.
But United have established strong links with Dortmund and believe they are in pole position.
They are ready to battle Chelsea every step of the way and believe they can lure him to Old Trafford.
