Sancho has established himself as one of the world’s biggest talents since leaving Manchester City to join Dortmund in the summer of 2017.
The winger has really come into his own under Lucien Favre’s tutelage, the England international has a staggering 17 goals and 19 assists from 35 appearances across all competitions this season.
With Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial now being used in centre-forward roles since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over at United, the Red Devils are in need of bolstering their options on the wings.
What better way to do this by capturing the signature of Sancho in a marquee move. This would be a massive statement of intent from the Red Devils, it would also be a knockout blow to cross-town rivals Man City.
