Real Madrid join Manchester United's pursuit of Jadon Sancho

Jadon Sancho has been linked with a move away from Borussia Dortmund for much of 2020, and now AS are reporting that Real Madrid are keen on landing the in-form winger, but not until next summer.

Real boss Zinedine Zidane is scouting Europe for the continent's best young players and Sancho definitely falls into that category. With 20 goals in 20 matches, 17 in 17 in the Bundesliga, he's certainly been catching the eye of some of Europe's top clubs, not least Manchester United.

However, with the Red Devils seemingly having to curtail their spending this summer as a result of the coronavirus, Los Blancos could seize the opportunity. Manchester United had an offer for the 20-year-old turned down earlier in the year, and while they're desperate to partner Sancho with Marcus Rashford, he could prove too expensive.

Madrid view the signing as a more long-term strategy and so could make a move next year.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is satisfied he does not need a striker this summer following Odion Ighalo's loan extension and will instead focus his attention on signing a more versatile forward.

United have agreed to keep Ighalo until January 2021 after a successful initial spell, prompting plans to add another centre forward in the next transfer window to be scaled back.

Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford can also play up front, while Solskjaer is keen to continue giving opportunities to youngster Mason Greenwood, who has scored 12 goals in his breakthrough campaign.

United have monitored Timo Werner, Moussa Dembele and Harry Kane but efforts to sign at least one of Jadon Sancho or Jack Grealish -- both of whom can play across the front line -- will be prioritised instead.

Philippe Coutinho could be a much cheaper alternative to Jadon Sancho for clubs like Chelsea. So why is nobody interested?
