If it wasn't enough to meet his 100m pounds asking price, it looks like Manchester United must also do whatever it takes to qualify for the UEFA Champions Leauge if they intend to make a run at Borussia Dortmund's wonderkid Jadon Sancho.

Sacho, a former Manchester City youngster, has been thriving at Germany since leaving the Etihad en 2017, netting seven scores to go along with eleven assists in 22 caps for Dortmund so far.

Thus, is not strange to see most European giants following the playmaker's footsteps, with Manchester United very high on his talents and making him one of his primary targets for the summer, whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stays or not, as per The Mirror.

Moreover, his recent performances have been enough to take his asking price of 70m pounds all the way up to the 100m, as the 19-year-old is drawing a lot of attention from all over the world.

His versatility, playmaking, and ability to score make him one of the most promising young players in Europe right now, as he can play on either flank of the pitch, right behind the striker or even as a false 9.

Manchester United have gone through a great run as of late with Solksjaer cleaning up Jose Mourinho's mess, knocking out Chelsea of the FA Cup while they're holding onto the 4th spot of the Premier League table.

The Red Devils can't take the foot off the gas if they're bound to make it back to the UEFA Champions League and will have to be at their best if they intend to come back from a 2 goal deficit against Paris Saint-Germain.

Notably, If Sancho winds up leaving Dortmund and land at Old Trafford, their longtime rivals Manchester City would get a 15% fee for the deal.
