Manchester United is ready to accept a winger, Jadon Sancho.
According to the British media Mirror, Manchester showed confidence of beating Chelsea FC to sign the Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho, for a £120 million deal. They are willing to pay to deal with Sancho.
Sancho, a 19 years old winger, has long emerged as the blue chip of European soccer. He accomplished 12 goals and 13 assists this season including the game on February 12, playing a key role as the Dortmund attacker. He has been expanding his presence with 11 appearances on the national team.
According to reports, Dortmund might send Sancho to another team, if the price is desirable. Chelsea is also known to have started to recruit players. As Pedro Rodriguez and Willian Borges, the two wingers of Chelsea could possibly leave, the team is willing to recruit Sancho.
Under these circumstances, Manchester became an obstacle. The leaders of Manchester, including Vice Chairman Ed Woodward, are planning a large-scale rebuilding for this summer. Sancho became the main target for the rebuilding. Manchester has expressed willingness to spend £120 million and has emerged as a strong contender for the recruit.
