Jadon Sancho has almost certainly made a lot of hopeful Manchester United fans a whole lot happier with his latest antics. The English forward scored an excellent hattrick in Borussia Dortmund’s Bundesliga game against Paderborn on Sunday.
The goal-heavy fixture ended 6-1 in favor of Dortmund as Sancho’s three goals were also aided by brilliant efforts from Thorgan Hazard, Achraf Hakimi, and Marcel Schmelzer.
Needless to say, Twitter went berserk with reactions to the exceptional performance from the youngster.
A good chunk of Manchester United fans were practically begging Ed Woodward to seal the deal for Sancho already.
Ed Woodward, I don’t know where you are at the moment. I don’t know if you’ll read this. But please just sign Jadon Sancho this summer. I don’t care about the price. Just splash the cash. He’ll be the best winger in the world for years to come.

It wouldn’t be far off to say that such a performance makes the prospective €100 million transfer tag seem justifiable.
Sancho’s brilliance has been brimming for quite a while and it will be interesting to see what the Red Devils will do hereon, especially since they aren’t the only club who are thought to be keeping tabs on the forward.
Meanwhile, the Bundesliga has certainly been having its fair share of attention, as the German competition is one of only top European leagues to be back in action. The Premier League is scheduled for a return mid-June as other countries also mull over eased resumptions.
