Man United target £100m Jadon Sancho
The Telegraph have gone big on Tuesday linking Manchester United with Jadon Sancho.
According to the broadsheet, Man United are ready to offer Borussia Dortmund 100 million pounds for English upstart.
It’s worth noting that Sancho is under contract with BVB until 2022.
Moreover, Sancho joined Dortmund from Man City for just 8 million pounds on the final day of the 2017 summer transfer window.
Man United vs PSG
Man United take on PSG in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
PSG are in firm control of the last-16 tie having won 2-0 at Old Trafford in the first leg.
While the clubs are battling on the pitch, the Telegraph also pit Man United against PSG in the race to sign Sancho:
Manchester United are ready to battle Paris St-Germain for Jadon Sancho in a tug-of-war that could see the Borussia Dortmund winger become the first £100 million English footballer.
United and PSG are preparing to test Dortmund’s resolve and the Bundesliga leaders know interest from both clubs will drive the price higher and guarantee an extraordinary profit on their original investment should they decide to cash in.
For the record, Sancho has nine goals and 14 assists for Dortmund this season.

The Alexis Sanchez factor
The Telegraph also wrap up the Sancho story alongside an update on Alexis Sanchez.
Sanchez was injured last weekend against Southampton, and the Chilean may not reappear from Man United this season.
Looking forard, the Telegraph suggest that Sancho could be a fixture in Man United’s XI while Alexis isn’t:
Any potential move to Old Trafford would certainly excite England manager Gareth Southgate, for whom the idea of three of his most talented attackers – Rashford, Lingard and Sancho – playing together at club level would doubtless benefit the country on the international stage.
Man City’s ’embarrassment’
The last angle of the Man United, Sancho story is the impact on Man City.
The case is made that the Sky Blues will be left with egg of their face if United land the BVB forward:
The prospect of United signing Sancho would be a potential embarrassment to City, who were unable to persuade the teenager to stay.
