Manchester United fans are convinced Jadon Sancho is joining this summer after the winger was benched for Borussia Dortmund’s clash against Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening. Sancho has come off the bench in Dortmund’s previous two Bundesliga games.
However, it’s claimed the England international is recovering from an injury.
Sancho is on the bench again as Lucien Favre’s men face Bayern Munich in a crucial game in the Bundesliga title race.
And United fans are convinced Sancho’s admission from Favre’s starting XI means he’s heading to Old Trafford this summer.
One United supporter wrote on Twitter: “Jadon Sancho getting bench reminds me of the Lukaku and solskjaer vibes in pre season. Welcome to Manchester United @Sanchooo10.”

Another said: “Dortmund is learning how to live without Sancho; you remember Pulisic to Chelsea??”
“No start for Sancho again? Yup that’s a confirmed move to United then. No one can tell me otherwise- I know how this works,” agreed a fellow fan.
Another wrote on Twitter: “Sancho on bench again only tells me one thing…. United soon.”
United have made Sancho their No. 1 transfer target ahead of the summer transfer window.
However, it’s understood Dortmund will demand over £100m for the 20-year-old.

- Man Utd hopes of completing Jadon Sancho transfer depend on Man City
The German giants have no problem with letting the former Manchester City ace leave – as long as their asking price is met.
A lot has been made of Sancho’s future, with former Dortmund midfielder Steffen Freund warning the winger about leaving the Bundesliga.
He said: “Jadon is ready to play for Liverpool or Man United, no question, because his stats are unbelievable. That shows that he can take the next step.
“In the Borussia Dortmund side with [Erling] Haaland, [Julian] Brandt improving, with Emre Can signing, with changing to a back-three that suits Sancho.
“It would be good for him to play for Borussia Dortmund now and next year so that he will have more match time.

“He’s only 20, so why not play for Borussia Dortmund? We’re not talking about Freiburg or Paderborn, we’re talking about Borussia Dortmund, one of the top 20 clubs in Europe.
“Remember Jovic, who moved to Real Madrid from Eintracht Frankfurt, he’s not playing. If you have an offer from Real Madrid you think, ‘I have to go’.
“No, you don’t have to go because the salaries in the Bundesliga are on a good level, too, not as much as Real Madrid or the Premier League, though.
“But you can earn good money and improve and not make too much of a big step at once.
“So for Jadon to move to Man United with that pressure, they are struggling to qualify for the Champions League, so maybe it’s better to stay another year in Dortmund.”
