Man Utd transfer target Jadon Sancho in ‘close contact’ with one player ahead of switch

Manchester United transfer target Jadon Sancho is in regular contact with Marcus Rashford ahead of a possible switch to Old Trafford this summer. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to add the England winger to his ranks as he looks to further improve his squad.

Sancho has been in sensational form this season, netting 17 goals and providing 19 assists in all competitions.

And BILD Head of Football Christian Falk has revealed Liverpool have never had any interest in the 20-year-old clearing the way for United to get a deal done.

The Red Devils have been chasing Sancho for months and have reportedly reserved the No. 7 shirt for the young star.

He told lfctransferroom: “So far we have no sign that Liverpool has ever had interest in Jadon Sancho, and if Jurgen Klopp really wanted to sign him, Dortmund would have already known that – Klopp would never try and bring a player from BVB without first contacting the German side.

“Manchester United has been chasing him for months.

“He is good friends with Rashford and they keep close contact with one another.”

Falk also revealed he does not think Sancho will leave Borussia Dortmund this summer because of the amount the Bundesliga side want for their prized asset.

He explained: “It’s clear to me that you English fans highly rate Jadon Sancho.
