United leading race for Sancho

Manchester United are leading the race to sign Jadon Sancho.

The England winger, who turned 20 earlier this week, has been a sensation since joining Borussia Dortmund in 2017, but is widely expected to leave the German side this summer, and return to England.

Competition for his signature is likely to be intense, with Liverpool and his boyhood club Chelsea also very interested, but United, long-standing admirers are thought to hold the edge at present.

Manchester City, the club who sold him to Dortmund for £8 million could also be a concerned party, given that the deal that took him to the Bundesliga side contained a right of first refusal clause, providing that they match any offer accepted for him.

The German side are expected to demand a minimum fee of £100 million for Sancho, who signed a new contract with them at the start of the season which extends until 2022.
