Manchester United transfer target Jadon Sancho scored a brilliant free-kick for Borussia Dortmund against Club Brugge this evening.
Sancho, one of the most talented players that England have produced in recent years, has emerged as a star since departing Manchester City and signing for Dortmund.
As a result, as reported by Dean Jones for Eurosport, Manchester United spent the whole summer pursuing the 20-year-old – to no avail.

As mentioned in that report, Dortmund will be unwilling to sell in January, but could listen to offers at the end of the season. United will be well-positioned after their pursuit this summer.
Sancho is still putting on a show at Dortmund, too, justifying the interest from United. Have a look at this brilliant free-kick he scored during Dortmund’s Champions League contest with Club Brugge tonight.
Stop that, Jadon!

He will have a tough time getting Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford off of free-kick duty, if he were to move to Old Trafford, but if he’s able to dispatch them like that on a regular basis, he’d be in with a shout.
