Manchester United are reportedly set to face stiff competition from some of Europe's elite sides, should they wish to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund next summer. 

The Red Devils had made an approach for the England international during the summer of 2019 but Dortmund made it clear that the attacker was not for sale.

Since then, reports have indicated that Dortmund may sanction the winger's sale at the end of the season and there are likely to demand a sum of around £100m.

According to Bild, United are no longer alone in the player's pursuit and they are set to face competition from the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, City, Liverpool and Chelsea next summer.

Sancho, who has generally featured on the right side of the attack, has been in sublime form for Dortmund this term and he has already bagged four goals and seven assists from 13 appearances.

His current contract with Dortmund only expires in the summer of 2022 but Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has recently hinted that the teenager could be permitted to leave the club for the right price in eight months' time.
