Transfer Rumors: Real Madrid Ready To Battle Manchester United For English Star

Real Madrid are set to have a great summer transfer window next year, even bigger than the one they just had. It was recently reported that Los Blancos had identified Paris Saint-Germain’s star Kylian Mbappe as their top transfer target next summer, but they aren’t planning to stop there.

Madrid have reportedly opened talks over sealing the transfer of Borussia Dortmund winger and Manchester United target Jadon Sancho. According to Don Balon, a deal has more or less been ‘closed’ for the Spanish side, who will have to pay around £127 million to bring the England international to the Bernabeu in what would be a very exciting move.

Albeit he was inconsistent with Borussia Dortmund at some point of his career, Sancho has improved his game tremendously, becoming one of the best players in the Bundesliga last season, taking his team to lead the league for quite some time before Bayern Munich overtook them.

The 19-year-old has been linked with Manchester United, as reported by the Sun and others, but Don Balon suggest Real are now the frontrunners to secure this huge signing.

It’s unclear what they are going to do next season with all these rumors. They are linked with a move for Mbappe and now Sancho. If they decide to go for both players, they’d have to disburse a huge amount of money. Still, pairing these two will make Madrid a contender to win everything they play.

As per Manchester, this would be a huge blow for them, who looked like the biggest candidate to steal Sancho from Dortmund. This is a guy that perfectly fits Ole Gunnar Solskjaer style of play, and Manchester won't let him go just like that.
