Manchester City are intent on stopping Jadon Sancho from joining Manchester United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified numerous targets to strengthen his squad before the start of next season, and Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho is believed to be right on top of his summer wishlist.
The England international is young, pacey, attack-minded, and full of potential, thereby fitting the Red Devils’ traditional criteria seamlessly.
Sancho undoubtedly has what it takes to become one of the best players in the world in the years to come, and that is precisely why the Cityzens are determined to keep their illustrious neighbours from signing the forward.
According to Sport Bild, City have been left ‘alarmed’ by United’s serious interest in their former academy star. Therefore, top officials at the Etihad outfit are now committed towards ensuring that his move to their arch-rivals does not take place under any circumstances.
Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, are prepared to deflect any and all offers for Sancho, no matter which side of Manchester they come through.
The Englishman has been directly involved in 29 goals in all competitions so far this season, and the Bundesliga giants hope he will improve on these figures in the seasons to come.
The report adds that Dortmund will not entertain any bids for the player until at least 2020. And when the time of the parting does arrive, they will demand a sum north of £100m for the sensational youngster.
