Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed he ‘thinks a lot’ about Jadon Sancho and rates the Man Utd transfer target as “extremely dangerous”.
Sancho, 21, has been attracting United’s interest for some time, with Borussia Dortmund rejecting a £91.3million bid for the star in 2020.
The Red Devils are back in the market for the England international this summer and had a fresh £67million offer rebuffed last week.
Dortmund are holding out for a fee in the region of £77.5million, plus an extra £4.25million in add-ons, according to the BBC.
Man City academy graduate Sancho is a top target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – and former United boss Ferguson holds him in high-regard too.
Sancho was left out of England’s squad for the 1-0 win over Croatia, but Fergie believes he will prove his worth as the tournament progresses.
The Scotsman was effusive in his praise of the Old Trafford target and added that he is an “extremely dangerous” attacker.
Ferguson told Sport Bild (via Sport Witness): “I think a lot of Jadon Sancho. With his one-on-one duels, as an assister and scorer, he is extremely dangerous.
Will Manchester United finally sign Jadon Sancho this summer? Let us know in the comments section.
“He has so much potential, he helps the team. That's why he'll be valuable to England over the course of the tournament.”
United are expected to go back in for Sancho later on in the transfer window, but for the time being the Dortmund star just wants to concentrate on his football.
Questioned on speculation over his future, he told talkSPORT: “I don't really look at it."
“When I'm during the season I always focus on myself and the team because that's the most important thing that we can do.
“When I'm on the pitch, I'm always giving my all and trying to create what I do on the pitch, that's goals and assists. I try to work hard.”
