Brighton and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a summer move for Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho, according to reports.

The 23-year-old arrived at Old Trafford in ahead of the 2021-22 season but has struggled to produce the consistency he delivered during four years with Borussia Dortmund in Germany.

The Red Devils are reportedly open to selling the player this summer, with The Daily Express claiming a £60m price tag has been set with Spurs willing to pay £50m to bring the player to North London.

They could face competition for the winger’s signature, however, as Europa League-bound Brighton are ready to make a club record bid for the player, as cited by Sussex World.

The Seagulls are said to have made enquiries about Sancho’s availability last month but saw their approaches rebuffed but a reported change in stance has alerted Brighton to a potential deal.

Sancho has made 79 appearances since joining United, scoring 12 goals but started just 26 times this season with Erik ten Hag’s side playing 62 matches.

Brighton have already agreed a deal for Watford winger Joao Pedro while midfielder Alexis Mac Allister has been sold to Liverpool for a reported £35m.

Spurs are expected to ramp up their summer business in the coming weeks after appointing Ange Postecoglou as their new manager.

The Red Devils are expecting a big summer as Ten Hag continues to shape his squad after a successful first season at the club. The Dutchman has guided United back into the Champions League and claimed the club’s first piece of silverware since 2017 with the Carabao Cup.

Harry Maguire is another player linked with a move away from the club and the potential sales could generate further income as Ten Hag looks to strengthen his squad.
