Manchester United news: Red Devils step up interest in £70m Jadon Sancho but face stiff competition from Paris Saint-Germain

Manchester United have stepped up their pursuit of England and Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho, but face stiff competition from Paris Saint-Germain for his signature.

Sancho, who played the full 90 minutes in England’s 5-0 hammering of the Czech Republic on Friday night, has been subject to interest from the Red Devils following his glittering season in the Bundesliga.

United have stepped up their pursuit of Sancho

The teenager, 18, has netted 8 goals and added 12 assists in 26 league matches this term – and he let his preferred destination be known on Friday by retweeting a post urging him the Red Devils to sign him on Twitter.

Earlier this month, Borussia Dortmund’s club director Michael Zorc insisted that Sancho would remain in Germany for another year.

However, according to The Sun, Old Trafford chiefs have now ‘made contact’ with the Dortmund hierarchy over the transfer.

French champions PSG are also keen on the teenager, who will reportedly be allowed to leave if an offer in the region of £70million is made.

Sancho has starred for Dortmund this season

Sancho would welcome a return to the Premier League after failing to break through the ranks at Manchester City under Pep Guardiola.

The City chief recently stated that Sancho didn’t want to ‘fight’ to get into the team – so a move for the Red Devils could give the footballing sensation a platform to get his own back on the Spanish tactician.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has said Sancho has the right mentality to join the Old Trafford club.

“I would take him [at Manchester United] all day. English, young, hungry and talented, that’s all I need to know,” he told Goal.

“He has got mentality. The mentality is a big part of it all, whether he has the physical attributes or not.”
