A top Man Utd attacking target has refused to rule out a move next summer, while Inter Milan are keen on signing a Chelsea star – all in Thursday’s papers.
MAN UTD GIVEN HUGE SANCHO LIFT
Top Manchester United target Jadon Sancho has refused to rule out leaving Borussia Dortmund club next summer.
The England winger has been identified by United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a priority target, with the Red Devils actively looking to land the 19-year-old over the summer.
However, Sancho decided that he wanted to continue his development and stay at Dortmund for at least one more campaign.
United’s interest has not wavered though and they are expected to reignite a move for the attacker next summer, provided they can return to the Champions League – as reported by Metro.
And Sancho appears to have given them a lift with his latest comments.
“I can’t tell the future,” Sancho told Viasport.
“I just take it game by game. I just wanna give 100 per cent for Borussia Dortmund.
“I really want to do well with Dortmund. Obviously, I want to win titles and give everything.
“It’s crazy. Everything has come so fast,” Sancho told Viasat. “But I have a great team. They keep me humbled. ‘I just take it game by game and give 100 per cent.”
United were willing to break their transfer record to sign Sancho and it looks as if they will have to pay a fee of over £100m, if the forward continues his rapid rise.
