Manchester United urged to sign Jadon Sancho despite £100m fee demand

Jamie Redknapp has suggested Manchester United shouldn’t let Jadon Sancho’s reported £100million valuation stop them from signing him. Sancho is among United’s top targets ahead of the summer transfer window but Borussia Dortmund won’t let their star forward leave on the cheap.

The Red Devils picked up an impressive victory over Brighton at the Amex Stadium on Tuesday with a brace by Bruno Fernandes and a goal by Mason Greenwood.

Redknapp was impressed with the Manchester giants’ performance and believes Sancho would help them cause even more damage in the Premier League next season.

“Brighton were poor tonight, really poor. But Manchester United punished them. They started the match so well and never let off.”

Sancho has been prolific for Dortmund this season with 20 goals and 20 assists to his name in 44 appearances this season.

The England international joined the Bundesliga giants in 2017 following a two-year stint in Manchester City’s academy and quickly rose to prominence as one of the world’s most exciting young prospects.
