Jadon Sancho is already getting the inside scoop from his potential Manchester United team-mates as the forward has joined a WhatsApp group amid talks with Borussia Dortmund
Jadon Sancho is already in a Manchester United WhatsApp group as the club continue talks of a transfer with Borussia Dortmund.
The Englishman has reportedly agreed personal terms with the Red Devils – but the Bundesliga side are sticking to their £100m valuation.
A move would see the 20-year-old link up with international team-mates such as Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire.
And The Sun have reported that Sancho is already getting the inside scoop from his potential future team-mates.
Transfer expert Ian McGarry said on the transfer window podcast: “Manchester United are comfortable at this moment in time that they’re not in any competition for the signature of Jadon Sancho.
“They don’t believe they’re going to be gazumped by no other club because no other club has expressed the same level of interest.
“They’re also very confident the player wants to come to Old Trafford.
“He has been in constant touch with England international colleagues who currently play for Manchester United and indeed in daily contact with them.
“It’s even believed he’s on a WhatsApp group with some of the Manchester United players as well.
“Therefore United are very comfortable with their position, they believe that Dortmund will come round to the structure that they’ve suggested.”
United are looking to get the best deal possible for Sancho, who is their priority this season – but it is seen as a “win-win” for Dortmund.
But United legend Paul Scholes believes the club should not be in such a rush to sign the 20-year-old.
“Don’t get me wrong, Sancho is a top-quality footballer,” the former midfielder said.
“I just think we already have three forwards or wide men that are very similar to Sancho.
“I think I would be more desperate to sign Harry Kane than Sancho at this stage.
“I just think United need a centre forward, a real No9, a real goalscorer, and Kane would be that man for me.”
