Lee Sharpe believes that Jadon Sancho is the kind of player that Manchester United need and the fans want.

Manchester United are apparently the front runners in the race to sign former Manchester City player Jadon Sancho.

The England winger has set the Bundesliga alight over the past couple of seasons. His form has attracted attention from all over Europe. But Manchester United are leading the chase in a deal that could be worth around 120 million Euros.

Former United winger Sharpe wants to see the Borussia Dortmund player arrive at the Theatre of Dreams. He believes this is the kind of transfer the fans want too and the club needs.

In an interview reported by Goal, Sharpe is full of praise for the youngster’s consistency and sees him flourishing at Old Trafford.

He said:

“I think he is one of the hottest properties in football at the moment.”

“It’s not like he’s just been doing it for a couple of months.”

“He’s been doing it for a few seasons now.”

“So he’s proved he’s got the consistency and proved he can do it week after week at a high level.”

“This is the sort of player that United as a team and as a group of fans that you want your club to be linked with.”

“I think he’s a fantastic player and would fit in great at United.”

“Fingers crossed they get him and he can light up Old Trafford next season.”
