Marcus Rashford Wants Jadon Sancho at Manchester United

Manchester United’s Interest in the Englishman

Manchester United have been strongly linked with the Sancho recently. The Red Devils have even offered him, as their top transfer target, the number seven shirt – a great honour at the Manchester side. Although it seems a bit much for someone of his age, Sancho has earned this admiration.

With 14 goals and 15 assists in the Bundesliga this season, Sancho has earned himself third and second place in the competition respectively, and first with both combined. Furthermore, only two players in Europe’s top five leagues have assisted more goals than Sancho and, having just turned 20, that is some achievement.

With so much natural talent, Sancho has attracted interest from all over Europe, and United have been leading the race for his signature for some time.

Sancho Would Fit Well into the Manchester United Team

Jadon Sancho would fit very well into the Manchester United team.

The 20-year-old is, first of all, a right-winger, which is the Red Devils’ most troublesome position. The likes of Andreas Pereira and Daniel James have tried their hand there this campaign, and although the latter has been successful, he is still a raw talent and one who may not be the best player for United to put their full faith in. Sancho, as someone fairly experienced at a high level despite his age, would be a perfect addition.

Furthermore, he is young and British – two main characteristics which Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on – and with pace on his side as well, Sancho would be a great signing for the Premier League giants.

United’s top goalscorer this season had much praise for United’s top transfer target. He said: “Sancho is a great player, he’s like the new generation of player. He’s exciting to watch him become the player he is developing into. Hopefully, we can all play together, that would be good”.

While this will give fans further hope of a transfer, it is also good to see that, should he join, Sancho would develop a good relationship with his colleagues, not just on the pitch.
