Manchester United could reportedly turn to Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi if they miss out on Jadon Sancho this summer.

Sancho is having another outstanding season for the Bundesliga giants, scoring 14 goals and adding 15 assists in 23 league appearances, prompting Liverpool, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Barcelona and PSG to also show an interest in his services.

United remain in pole position to sign the 19-year-old, although they will face an uphill battle to fend off the other suitors in convincing Sancho his future lies at Old Trafford.

If they do miss out, then the Manchester Evening News reports that they could turn to a former target in Hudson-Odoi.

The Chelsea youngster has seen his first-team chances at Stamford Bridge limited this season, largely down to injuries, but only penned a new deal with the Blues last year.

However, the report adds that Hudson-Odoi’s circumstances could change in the transfer window and that Solskjaer’s stance on signing young homegrown talent makes United a prime location for the winger.

 

Meanwhile, United legend Rio Ferdinand spoke with great excitement as he pinpointed two key reasons why frontman Mason Greenwood has the world at his feet.

The 18-year-old academy graduate has burst onto the scene in the current campaign, notching 12 goals and four assists from just 1,655 minutes of action across 36 first-team appearances.

Greenwood has scored in every competition he has featured in this season, and has been a vital component in the Red Devils’ mid-season rejuvenation. Read more…
