Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund is allegedly ‘pushing for a return to Manchester United. The 21-year-old has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent transfer windows and is desperate to make the move this summer. Sancho has told his lawyer to press for a move to Manchester United in June, according to the Manchester Evening News. Borussia Dortmund and the former Manchester City youth product have agreed on a gentleman’s deal for him to leave the club this summer.
Last season, Manchester United spent most of the transfer window attempting to sign Jadon Sancho. The Red Devils, on the other hand, we’re unable to pay Dortmund £108 million for the Englishman. Sancho had allegedly agreed to personal terms with Manchester United and was upset when his agent, Emeka Obasi, was unable to secure the transfer. The Englishman struggled at the start of the season but has since rediscovered his magic touch.
On Thursday night, the 21-year-old scored two goals in Dortmund’s 4-1 win over RB Leipzig in the DFB Pokal final. He’ll also be a member of Gareth Southgate’s England team for the European Championships in June 2021.

Sancho’s current club, Borussia Dortmund, is open to bids in the range of £77 million. Since experiencing financial losses, the club is in desperate need of funds to balance its accounts. Dortmund is desperate to retain Erling Haaland this summer but is willing to let Sancho go if a decent offer comes in.
Manchester United has been one of Europe’s most in-form squads over the past few months. Their recent string of results in the Premier League and Europe has propelled them to the second position in the Premier League standings. As well as the Europa League favorites.
Manchester United’s summer signing of Jadon Sancho could help them close the gap on Manchester City in the Premier League.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, need the addition of a top-flight goalkeeper and a central midfielder. The team has lost in their last two Premier League games against Leicester City and Liverpool. Owing to the exclusion of Harry Maguire from Manchester United’s backline.
Many supporters and commentators have called on Manchester United to sign a defensive midfielder in the summer. As a result of Fred and Scott McTominay’s disappointing results.
