Man Utd transfer swoop for Jadon Sancho in jeopardy as star’s stance on move emerges

Manchester United want to bring Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window. But the player is unconvinced a swicth to the Red Devils is the best things for his career at this time, according to reports in Germany.

Sancho has been in sensational form this season, netting 20 goals and providing 20 assists to his team-mates in all competitions.

That has seen United make the England international their top target for the summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City.

But Sancho has reservations and will only consider a move if the Red Devils finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League next season.

That’s according to Bild who claim the winger is not ‘100 percent convinced’ joining Solskjaer’s side is the ‘right step’ for him.

Sancho is keen to wait and see how the season ends in England and where United sit overall.

The 20-year-old may be encouraged by the form of the Red Devils since the Premier League restart though.

United sit just two points behind Chelsea and are currently on a 16-match unbeaten run.

The report from Bild also claims that Dortmund will not take any less than a fixed price of €120m.

“I’m not going to sit here and say, “Oh no, he’s not good enough!” because of course he’s good enough.

“He’s got pace, he’s got the ability to go past players, score goals and create.

“I think ultimately all those kind of things are going to be down to financial issues coming out of COVID-19 – financially, it’s hit every football club.

“But Manchester United will undoubtedly look to strengthen and look to add to what they have.”

United return to Premier League action on Thursday evening when they take on relegation-threatened Aston Villa (8.15pm).
