Manchester United have emerged as shock favourites to land a former Man City midfielder currently at Dortmund, a report claims.

Reports earlier in the month claimed pretty much all the Premier League’s big guns are keen on Jadon Sancho after his rapid development with the Bundesliga side.

The 18-year-old was handed his first Bundesliga start of the season over the weekend in the 4-3 win over Augsburg and he has been called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

Sancho has scored once and grabbed nine assists so far this season in all competitions, and he has been catching the eye of scouts from England.

However, a report from Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb claims that United are ahead of Premier League rivals Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool in the race for his signature.

Playing for England brings new pressures, though, and his performance have seen a £100million price tag to be mentioned.

“That’s mad!” Sancho said with a laugh when told of that figure. “Woah!

“That’s… I don’t know… I don’t know what to say to that.”

Asked if he felt he would play club football in England again,” he said: “I don’t know. It’s the future. You never know what could happen, so we wait and see.”
