Jadon Sancho’s impressive performances for Borussia Dortmund could earn him a move back to Manchester soon.

Manchester United‘s forwards are struggling to find the net this season. Anthony Martial has managed to find his form, scoring 4 goals in the last three fixtures, but Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford continue to endure droughts that don’t look likely to end anytime soon.

The Red Devils have lacked the services of a proper right-winger since Antonio Valencia dropped back to play in the defence. Rashford has featured on that side of the pitch for most of this season, but being a natural striker, has failed to make a proper impact from the flank.

Jose Mourinho made multiple attempts to sign a winger in the summer, but Ed Woodward failed to deliver during the transfer window.

Manchester United are said to be eyeing a move for Dortmund sensation Jadon Sancho in the next summer window. The 17-year-old winger has been in brilliant form this season, scoring 5 goals and providing 7 assists.

Gareth Southgate was impressed by his performances, and handed him his first national cap against Croatia this month. The teenager has begun attracting interest from clubs all around Europe as well.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes suggests that English clubs are looking to make a move for Sancho, having stated: “Two English youngsters are lighting up the Bundesliga right now, and while Sancho looks likely to return to these shores, the latest betting suggests Nelson could make his stay in Germany a permanent one.”

Dortmund have adopted a policy to not include buy-back clauses when young stars join their club, but Manchester City managed to convince them, and have first rights on Jadon Sancho. However, United are still considered favourites to land the Englishman if he decides to leave in the near future.
