United and PSG to Wage Big Money Transfer Battle for Jadon Sancho

Could Jadon Sancho become the first £100 million English footballer? Well, it would take a bidding war among big money clubs in order to get there, and reportedly that’s what is in store for the Borussia Dortmund winger this summer.

Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United will battle each other on the pitch tomorrow night, and then again in the transfer market according to the Guardian, and many other media outlets worldwide.

It remains to be seen whether or not the former Manchester City man wants to return to England, or go to the French capital for that matter, but he’s supposedly a top target for both clubs, which is interesting because both sides currently have plenty of attacking options to choose from right now.

If Sancho were to go to United, and fetch over £100m, he would surpass Paul Pogba’s £89m as the most expensive player in both United and British history. In regards to PSG, they hold both the #1 and #2 spots on the most expensive players of all time list with Neymar at £198 million and Kylian Mbappe at £160m.

So Sancho really doesn’t stand much of a chance of breaking club transfer fee record there. However, he is a very hot commodity, and his dominant form has been noticed the world over. His ascension definitely played a role in Christian Pulisic making the switch from BVB to Chelsea.

Writes James Ducker of The Guardian: “Sancho, 18, has established himself as one of the most exciting young players in Europe following his £8m move to Dortmund from United’s bitter local rivals Manchester City in August 2017.”

Jadon Sancho would probably fit in better at United than PSG, because Old Trafford may be in the market for another attacking player before too long.

Alexis Sanchez has been an utter and complete flop since moving over from Arsenal last year, and the nightmarish spell has reached a new low today- he could miss the rest of the season due to ligament damage in his right knee.

One has to wonder about his long term future with the club, and that could open the door to acquiring another winger.

Anyways, getting back to the PSG vs United clash on the pitch…..
