Man Utd dressing room excited over Jadon Sancho transfer as negotiations drag on

Manchester United players are excited about the prospect of Jadon Sancho moving to Old Trafford, reports say. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to sign the Borussia Dortmund star, three years after the club first missed out. But Ed Woodward has found negotiations difficult so far.

Manchester United have spent the last few weeks negotiating a deal for Sancho.

However, at the current time, the Red Devils still have much work to do with Borussia Dortmund holding firm.

The Bundesliga giants are adamant Sancho will be going nowhere this transfer window, with United failing to stump up the £108million asking price.

That’s prompted the Red Devils into looking for alternatives with Douglas Costa, Ansu Fati, Kingsley Coman and Ousmane Dembele all linked.

Yet The Athletic say some United players are excited about the prospect of returning to Carrington with Sancho ready and waiting to greet them.

They feel a marquee signing can help improve the club as they seek a first Premier League title since 2013, back when Sir Alex Ferguson ruled the roost.

But United and Woodward must first find a breakthrough in negotiations for Sancho, with Dortmund sticking to their message that he won’t be leaving.

Meanwhile, former Red Devils star Owen Hargreaves feel the club should hasten any potential Sancho deal.

And he feels the Dortmund star can have the same big impact at Old Trafford as Bruno Fernandes, who joined from Sporting Lisbon in January.

He told talkSPORT: “I hope he comes over here. He would be perfect for United.

“I don’t think they (Dortmund) have much of an argument because they’ve pretty much sold everyone, whether it’s been (Robert) Lewandowski, (Mats) Hummels, (Mario) Gotze or (Ousmane) Dembele. Everyone has pretty much left there.

“We know they are a selling club and it’s obviously about money.

“In Jadon, as much as we are in a difficult space right now with everything going in the world, it will be money well spent.

“You just have to get the deal done.

“You saw what Bruno did to United. Jadon would do the same.”

Wes Brown is another former United star who has talked up Sancho and what he could bring Solskjaer’s team.

The former defender told Sky Sports: “We’ve got some young, exciting attacking players but Sancho would be another layer of the cake.

“He’s exciting, he’s young, he can score goals and is good with assists. If they can get that done it would be perfect.

“United can always improve. The defence, midfield; the more competition going on all over the field, the better the team becomes.”

As well as Sancho, United could make signings in midfield and defence as they go in search of title glory.
