If Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was watching Borussia Dortmund in action on Sunday afternoon, then he no doubt would have been left purring at Jadon Sancho’s performance.
The England international has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer, with reports in recent months claiming that United are the front-runners to seal his signature.
And against Paderborn in the Bundesliga, Sancho showcased just why United are prepared to shell out big-money for him, smashing in a fine hat-trick in a resounding 6-1 win for Dortmund away from home.
After seeing his impressive display, United fans flooded to Twitter to share their reactions.
God damn I love Sancho. Get that man at United ASAP.

Sancho is unbelievably smart player .. bet he will lift #MUFC to another level if he joins

Another hat trick from Sancho today, must admit, not since Ronaldinho have I wanted a player at United so bad. Would also love to see United invest in some young South American talent, especially when it’s rumored Almada is available for 15-20m.

How one doubts Sancho talent with all he puts on the pitch is beyond me, this is the 2nd season Sancho is making double numbers look so easy, he is a generational talent and if #MUFC sleeps on him then the board will burn forever, Sancho over Werner any day pic.twitter.com/2ydhtCsWVB

Some United fans called on Ed Woodward to get a deal done for Sancho as soon as possible, with one supporter even suggesting that they might forgive him if he manages to pull it off.
Woodward, call Sancho now!

Sancho was simply unplayable on Sunday, and at his absolute very best.
Aside from his three goals, he was a constant menace to the Paderborn defence, completing three of his four attempted dribbles, making five key passes, and creating two big chances too, as per Sofascore.
It’s no wonder so many United fans are desperate for him to join this summer.
