Man Utd transfer news: Two European giants target £40m signing

Two European giants are keen to land Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho this summer, with reports claiming the club has slapped a £40m price tag on him.

There was much fanfare about Sancho’s £73million move to Old Trafford in the summer of 2021 but after being critical of his manager on social media having been called out for his performances in training he became something of an outcast and was shipped back to his former club in January. Sancho had been dropped from United's defeat to Arsenal last September because of a perceived lack of effort in team training, something he took to social media to publicly deny.

During his loan spell back in Germany, Dortmund reached the final of the Champions League against Real Madrid at Wembley earlier this month, with Real running out winners. It appears likely he will be on the move again this summer.

Sky Sports claim: "Borussia Dortmund remain in contact with Manchester United over a potential deal for winger Jadon Sancho. Juventus are also interested. They are two of a number of clubs in Italy and Germany keen on Sancho.”

They add that any deal for Sancho this summer would be for a permanent move, not a loan deal. And there are widespread reports the asking price is a bargain £40m.
