Manchester United are leading the race to sign Jadon Sancho, according to new reports.
Sancho, who is into double figures for both goals and assists this season, is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund this year after spending three years with the German club.
According to Evening Standard, Manchester United are ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool to sign Sancho and officials at Dortmund are starting to believe that the former City winger will return to Manchester – the red side.
They also say that Real Madrid’s Brahim Diaz, a former City player, has an ‘anti-United’ clause in his contract. Should Real Madrid sell Diaz to United, Man City are entitled to 40% of whatever transfer fee.
However, they failed to insert such a clause into Sancho’s contract with Dortmund and City would be due no compensation – although they have an option to match any bid accepted by Dortmund.
Evening Standard say that it is unlikely that Manchester City will match any bid exceeding £100 million – which is what United will most likely have to pay.
