Manchester United have Jadon Sancho on a list of four attacking transfer targets, reports say. It’s an open secret that the Red Devils want to sign the Borussia Dortmund star, who has impressed in the Bundesliga this season. And they also have Jack Grealish and two others on their radar.
Manchester United appear to have turned a corner under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before the coronavirus crisis brought football to a crashing halt.
The Red Devils were on a hot streak, winning eight of their last 11 matches in all competitions and failing to lose since their 2-0 defeat to Burnley in December.
Now, Solskjaer and United are planning ahead as they eye a shot at the Premier League title next season.
And ESPN name Sancho and Grealish among four attacking targets for the Red Devils as they look to reel in the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool.
Dortmund star Sancho has been sublime this season, scoring 14 Bundesliga goals and clocking up 16 assists.
For United they think he’s the heir to Cristiano Ronaldo’s throne, having struggled to replace the Portugal international since his move to Real Madrid in 2009.

They’re also prepared to hand the England international Ronaldo’s old No 7 shirt, with Alexis Sanchez primed to depart.

But, should Pogba go, Grealish is seen as the ideal replacement.
Other attacking targets for United include Moussa Dembele and Timo Werner, of Lyon and RB Leipzig respectively.
