It is no secret Jadon Sancho is viewed as the perfect Manchester United target in the summer transfer window.
In an ideal world Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would already be closing in on a deal for the Borussia Dortmund winger ahead of the next window after years of admiring him from afar, but those plans will have to wait amid the ongoing pandemic.
United were keen on signing Sancho upon his exit from Manchester City in 2017 and, after three years of patiently waiting, they are now finally ready to pounce. Club officials first began drawing up a list of summer targets in February and Sancho is at the top of the list.
The wider global concerns mean transfer negotiations have had to take a backseat for the time being but United fans shouldn’t be too worried.. Another few months of waiting shouldn’t hurt them in the pursuit of the England international – after all, they’ve already made a tactical change ready for his arrival.
Solskjaer is a sucker for nostalgia and he knows every great United side needs an iconic No.7 playing on the right wing. Sancho is the ideal player fill such a role at Old Trafford – but the manager knows his success depends just as much on the man behind him.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is already the best defensive right-back in England, if not Europe, with his tenacity the perfect springboard for Sancho to build upon with his own attacking threat. But, if United really want to get the best out of a new right winger they know more support is needed on his flank.
Jadon Sancho – Turning 20
That is why both Wan-Bissaka and club coaches have been working tirelessly to bring out the biggest attacking threat in the right-back they can.
