Manchester United have so far signed the likes of Lukaku, Lindelof and Matic in this summer’s transfer window but Mourinho needs further reinforcements before the start of the new PL campaign.
As far as the attacking midfield is concerned, the Red Devils have mainly been linked with Ivan Perisic. Yesterday, we covered a report (via Daily Star) claiming that Mourinho is closing in on signing the Croatian international.
Now, another attacking player is linked with the Old Trafford club in the form of Manchester City’s Jadon Sancho, who is widely regarded as one of the best young talents in the country.
According to MEN, Manchester United are pushing hard to secure the signing of the 17-year-old left winger, who scored 20 goals and provided 7 assists (33 appearances) in all competitions for the Citizens in the last campaign.
For the Under-17 English team, he has so far played 16 games and scored no fewer than 13 goals.
Yesterday, Telegraph exclusively revealed that his future at Man City is in doubt after he missed more than a few training sessions. British source mentioned that clubs like Arsenal, Spurs, Leipzig and Dortmund have also been interested in signing the teenage sensation, who was named best player at the Under-17 European Championships.
As per the provided MEN link, Man City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak rates Sancho very highly and claimed that he is “extremely talented”.
