Manchester United have some big plans ahead of the summer transfer window with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to revamp his squad. One stat proves that the Norweigan’s top target could be the club’s next David Beckham.

United have made Sancho their top target going into the summer window after failing to sign him last year.

And Borussia Dortmund’s hard stance has softened significantly, meaning the winger will likely be leaving if the Red Devils stump up the cash necessary.

But after knocking nearly £40m off the asking price, Solskjaer and the club chiefs will have an easier time landing the England international.

It will put to bed a transfer saga that has stretched for nearly two years after initial enquiries started towards the end of 2019.

And for Solskjaer, it will help solve his winger conundrum as he looks to sign a player that can provide crosses for the likes of Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

One stat proves how vital Sancho could be after reaching 10 assists in the Bundesliga at the weekend after a crucial 3-1 win over Mainz that gave Dortmund Champions League football next season.

It means that the Camberwell-born ace became the first Englishman since Beckham to provide 10 assists in the league for three seasons running.

Becks went one better and did it four times in a row from 1997/98 to 2000/01 – a feat that remains very much on the cards for Sancho, especially if he switches to Old Trafford to follow in the club legend’s footsteps.

Earlier this month, the Manchester City academy graduate threw doubt over his time in Germany when Dortmund neat RB Leipzig 3-2.

“I don’t know about my future,” Sancho told ESPN after the match.

“I am very happy here in Dortmund at the moment.

“I love the club, the fans and the team. They gave me my first professional start.”
