Manchester United promise to build team around £100m star

Jadon Sancho news

Honigstein says Sancho finds United move appealing

Manchester United will reportedly promise to build the team around Jadon Sancho as they seek to lure him to the Premier League in the next transfer window.

The England international is the Red Devils' number one target for the summer and reports have claimed that they would need to spend a club-record fee of around £100m to sign th attacker.

The likes of Chelsea and Liverpool are also interested in the winger but German journalist Raphael Honigstein states that the Red Devils have the edge over their rivals.

Speaking on the Steilcast Podcast, Honigstein revealed that Sancho is excited by the prospect of heading to Old Trafford, given he has the opportunity of being the leading star.

He added that United won't be able to guarantee trophies from the off but that may not necessarily hamper their chances of signing the former Manchester City graduate.

Manchester United can’t promise titles to [Jadon] Sancho straight away. But they can promise him to be the leading star in a new team that is emerging. From what I’ve been told that is quite appealing to him,” he told.
