Manchester United close to land their perfect transfer target at the fourth attempt.

Manchester United’s long-running race of Jadon Sancho is almost bearing fruit as there is indication pointing out this may finally happen soon.

In about four years after departing City, the England international has re-emerged as a transfer target for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer before the summer window.

In terms of anxiety, this is not the first time such a high-profile transfer has been on the card.

Certainly, United have attempted to sign the 21-year-old in three previous seasons, the most recent of which was last year, when United were outpriced by Dortmund.

Amid financial concerns caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, a nine-figure price was never going to be paid – even by those with the ability to spend such sums.

As attentions turn to the forthcoming transfer window, though, it has been announced that Sancho could be available for a cut-price £74million.

Owing to the prevailing state of play financially – and Dortmund’s struggles to qualify for the Champions League – this is a chance not to be avoided.

After being dropped from England duty in March due to injury, Sancho should respond to the fold and play a key part at the prolonged European Championship.

The Red Devils have a record of going for high-profile players after international tournaments.


The likes of Rio Ferdinand (2002) and Wayne Rooney (2004) landed at Old Trafford in big-money deals after their escapades for England at major championships.

There are, arguably, some suitable candidates to follow suit this time around.

Declan Rice has surfaced as a target on the back of a stellar period at West Ham, but Dortmund’s decision to make Sancho available offers United an opportunity to address one of their problem areas.

Mason Greenwood and Dan James are among those to have been used on the right-hand side by Solskjaer this summer, but United have not had actual right-wingers of quality since the days of Antonio Valencia and Nani.

However, they have made so to varying effect, with the team choice made by United in such a significant game as a European semi-final against Roma – where Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba operated either side of Uruguayan veteran Edinson Cavani – suggesting at where the club may need to strengthen.

One subplot to the Sancho race is, of course, his connection with Manchester City.

A £74million price shows a huge outlay, his record in the Bundesliga emphasizes the school of thought that it would represent more real value for money.

Sancho has registered 46 goals and 62 assists in 133 outings for Dortmund all-told, highlighting one of the most eye-catching returns in his position across Europe.

Unlike his former academy teammate Phil Foden, Sancho had to move away to shape his name and status – but if United dive now, they can ultimately show how much of a mistake that decision was on the part of their City rivals while establishing their chances of turning Manchester red next season.
