Manchester United are said to be the club with the biggest chances to land Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho. The Red Devils face tough competition in Spain, where Barcelona and Real Madrid are also following the English youngster.
United was unable to qualify for the Champions League last season, finishing sixth in the Premier League. Although they looked ready to get some good players this summer to bolster their level, that didn’t happen and the English side is once again an underperforming squad.
That’s a factor that could prevent Sancho from joining them, as he’s currently playing for a team with a good level both in their domestic league and Europe’s top club competition. The England international is valued at as much as €120 million by Dortmund, according to Don Balon.
DB adds that Sancho is seen as a potential replacement for Lionel Messi in Barcelona, a move that could be considerably more appealing for him than going to Old Trafford. Both Barca and Manchester had troubles with their strikers at some point in the season, and this guy could bring the quality they need to step up.
He left Manchester City to join Borussia Dortmund as a youngster, and that decision has paid off for him, who is now one of the most exciting and promising players in Europe. Germany has been great for his development, but it looks like is time for him to seek new challenges.
If he wants to take his game to a different level, then joining Barcelona is the best option for him. They’re a team that can maximize his skills and take him to be one of the best players on earth, while Manchester would be considered a step back for the 19-year-old.
