Manchester United are confident they will beat Chelsea to the signing of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho in the summer transfer window, according to reports.
The Red Devils brought in Bruno Fernandes in a big deal over January, with Odion Ighalo also coming in on loan, and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has already hinted they will spend big in the summer.
Man Utd have struggled in the Premier League this season with only nine wins in 25 matches seeing them slip to eighth in the Premier League table.
OPINION: Woodward must deliver Man Utd’s most crucial post-Fergie signing
One name continually linked with a move to Old Trafford is Sancho, who is enjoying another incredible season for Borussia Dortmund.
The 19-year-old has scored 15 goals while providing 16 assists in all competitions this term, but reports claim he has fallen out with the Dortmund hierarchy.
And now the Daily Mirror says that Man Utd are ‘determined to beat Chelsea in the £120million battle to sign’ Sancho.
Man Utd ‘believe they can edge out Chelsea’ in the race for Sancho with the newspaper claiming that they are the only two teams seriously fighting his signature.
Chelsea are ‘ready to back’ Frank Lampard in the summer after surprisingly failing to make any signings in the January transfer window.
However, Man Utd ‘believe they are in pole position’ due to their ‘strong links with Dortmund’.
