Man Utd Transfer Target Jadon Sancho Private Talks With Solskjaer Revealed

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is so keen to see the club sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

The 20-year-old reportedly told Solskjaer he wants to move to Old Trafford this summer in a private conversation between the pair.

Borussia Dortmund have repeatedly insisted their prized asset isn’t for sale.

However, Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet say that the Red Devils are now increasingly confident that they’ll secure the forward’s signature.

And it’s claimed that, in private talks, Sancho, who is under contract in Germany until the summer of 2023, made it clear that he was keen on making the move to Old Trafford this time around.

Solskjaer is however frustrated with the pace of transfer negotiations so far.

And he’s reportedly told Ed Woodward he wants a deal done as swiftly as possible.
