Harry Kane; Jadon Sancho TEAMtalk

Borussia Dortmund could cash in on Jadon Sancho next summer with Manchester United heading the queue, while Arsenal and Chelsea are both prepared to pay £50million for a defender, all in the papers.



Manchester United could now go all out for Jadon Sancho after pulling out of a move for Erling Haaland, according to a report.

According to The Times, Dortmund are now willing to listen to offers in excess of £100million for the England international, but not until the summer.

They claim “Haaland’s signing is likely to have repercussions for Sancho’s future at Dortmund”.

Sancho’s contract is due to expire in 2022 and Dortmund are aware that the teenager wants to return to the Premier League.

The report adds Sancho would be “interested” in talking to United should they make an approach, while he is also “intrigued” by the prospect of going to Spain.

The Daily Mail have a piece on five players United could improve their squad with and plenty of outlets have gone with the line that Lyon’s Moussa Dembele could be an alternative target to Haaland.

However, there is no substance in the Mail’s article, which also claims Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard is another potential signing.
