Manchester United have contact Jadon Sancho’s agent over a possible transfer. The Borussia Dortmund winger has been tipped to return to the Premier League this summer. United, Chelsea and Liverpool are eyeing the England international, 20.
And according to the Mirror, United have tried to beat their rivals to the former Manchester City winger.
The Red Devils have contacted Sancho’s agent over a possible move.
However, the Mirror add that United are reluctant to submit a formal approach for the youngster due to concerns over the summer transfer window.
The summer window will be affected by the coronavirus pandemic, with reports claiming it could be extended until next January.
It remains to be seen when football will return after the pandemic. Premier League football could return at the end of this month at the very earliest.
However, it’s more likely the suspension of games will be extended into the summer.
United are ready for a busy summer transfer window, with the Red Devils hoping to land Jack Grealish or James Maddison.
And United hero Paul Ince claims Ed Woodward needs to sign two strikers and a central midfielder this summer.
“If they want to close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool then they need a world class striker,” Ince said.
“They had the chance with Haaland, the young kid who went to Dortmund, that was sad really.
“He is a very, very good young player who can improve and you can’t let people like that slip through the net.

“That was disappointing that they couldn’t get him. They have got to have someone in who gets 20-25 goals a season.
“They need another midfield player for sure. We don’t know what happens with [Paul] Pogba if he stays or goes. That’s another saga that we will have to go through once the season finishes.
“They need two strikers, I know [Marcus] Rashford is coming back but he is only young. You can’t rely on him all the time.
“Martial, for me on his day, is brilliant but he doesn’t have enough of those days. Ighalo is the wrong end of 30. He has done well but you won’t pin your hat on him for the next four years.
“If you look at all the top teams, all the best teams have the best strikers. Their strikers have 20-25 goals in a bad season.
“Manchester United lost that in [Romelu] Lukaku. That’s got to be their main aim.”
