Man United set to face competition from PSG for the signing of Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are set to face competition from Paris Saint Germain as they aim to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, as reported by The Express.

What’s the story?

The report claims that the Ligue 1 giants are set to pose the biggest obstacle to Man United in their bid to land Sancho.

Sancho, who has scored 3 Bundesliga goals and provided 5 assists from 8 starts and 1 substitute appearance, is ready to quit Dortmund after he was dropped from the side last month.

The Englishman was fined for returning late from international duty and then taken off after just 36 minutes against Bayern Munich.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be interested in making a January swoop, but PSG have made him their top target due to doubts over Neymar’s future – and that could pose a big problem for the 20-time Premier League winners.

Tough competition

Regarding the transfer window, the French champions will prove to be very tough competition as they have shown in the past how dominant they can be in the market.

In 2017, they signed Neymar for a world-record £200m, following that up the following year by bringing Kylian Mbappe to Parc des Princes for £165.7m.

This gives an indication of just how powerful they can be in the market, while their record of having won five of the last six Ligue 1 titles could be another factor to lure prospective players to the French capital.

With that in mind, Man United could have a battle on their hands to bring the talented teenager to Old Trafford.
