Jadon Sancho’s stance on joining Man Utd with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in charge

Jadon Sancho would love to join Manchester United if they qualify for the Champions League.

The Borussia Dortmund winger is set to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer as he goes in search of major trophies and the project at Old Trafford could tempt him to return to England.

The 19-year-old has taken the Bundesliga by storm with 27 goals and 36 assists in the competition since he chose to leave Manchester City in 2017, and he is likely to break United’s record fee for an incoming deal.

Bleacher Report have been told that Sancho loves the idea of joining the Red Devils and he will make them his preferred destination should they return to Europe’s premier competition for next season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to lower the average age of his squad even further by signing promising youngsters in the summer, with Sancho interested in the prospect of joining up.

Daniel James, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are just some of the players that could form the core of Solskjaer’s team over the next few seasons, with Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes offering more experience.

The Norwegian boss has refused to be drawn over links to both Sancho and Jack Grealish despite constant rumours, but Ed Woodward has hinted that there won’t be any major signings in the summer.

He said in February: “We had consistently taken the view that – because January is not an optimal time in terms of availability of players – we would only buy in January if players we had already targeted for the summer became available and we were pleased that this strategy played out with the signing of Bruno Fernandes.

“Bruno Fernandes and the players we brought (in) last summer are evidence that our process is the right one.

“There has been no shortage of investment in players over the past few years, with over £200million spent since Ole became manager.

“Our aim is to ensure that we continue to achieve consistency in quality of recruitment.

“Off the pitch, it is important to note that the commercial elements of the club are geared to ensuring we have a self-sustaining model which supports investment in the playing side.”

The signing of Fernandes has proved to be a roaring success as of now with his arrival giving the rest of the squad a boost – with his determination to secure Champions League football pleased fans.

“With this draw, we need to be a little bit mad, because we need to do much better,” said Fernandes.

“We need to win the games, because we want a place in the Champions League.

“So we need to try more, to improve more, and I think in the next games we will be much better.”
