Manchester United transfer target Jadon Sancho loves the idea of moving to Old Trafford, reports claim. The Borussia Dortmund star is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top target for the summer window having missed out on the England international last year.
Manchester United have watched Sancho terrify Bundesliga defences with Borussia Dortmund this season, scoring 14 league goals and registering 14 assists along the way.
The 19-year-old is expected to leave Germany at the end of the season having spent the last three seasons there since leaving Manchester City.
Chelsea, PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona are all eyeing the England international, who is likely to become Europe’s most-wanted man.
Yet Bleacher Report say Sancho himself ‘loves’ the idea of playing for Solskjaer’s side.
And if United finish in the Premier League top four or win the Europa League, then the Red Devils should manage to bring him in.
For Solskjaer, that would be a major coup.

The Norwegian has been tracking Sancho ever since he walked in the door as Jose Mourinho’s replacement.
United have seen wingers toil during their time at Old Trafford in recent years – and that’s something Solskjaer believes Sancho can rectify.
Alexis Sanchez got nowhere near living up to the club’s expectations upon joining from Arsenal in January 2018.
The same can be said for Angel Di Maria, who faded after a bright start after touching down in 2014.
And United also saw Adnan Januzaj and Memphis Depay fail to kick on after promising starts to their career at the club.
Sancho grew up as a Chelsea fan.

But it seems that he’d love to join United over the Blues, which would represent a significant blow to Frank Lampard.
Dortmund recently did their best to try and dampen talk of Sancho leaving the Westfalenstadion at the end of the season.
Club Hans-Joachim Watzke said: “I think he has the feeling that the club does have a good future.
“In my opinion, I don’t think he wants to leave.”
Watzke also refuted the claim that Dortmund would sell Sancho in order to raise money for reinforcements.
Despite being one of the biggest clubs in Germany, the Bundesliga side have been accused of being a selling club in recent years.
But Watzke added: “It’s not a question of money.
“For us, it would be the best position if he stays at Borussia Dortmund.
“We have enough money. We want to have titles. I think this team has a lot more potential with Jadon than without Jadon.”
Sancho isn’t the only player on United’s transfer radar this summer, with the Red Devils eyeing a big spree to close the gap on the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool.
Jack Grealish, Timo Werner and Moussa Dembele are also interesting Solskjaer.
