Manchester United are confident about their chances of luring Jadon Sancho away from Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to a report from The Evening Standard.

The England international appears to be a target for the Red Devils ahead of next season following his exploits in Germany.

Sancho, who departed Manchester City to seek pastures new with Dortmund, has shone for Lucien Favre’s side, establishing himself as a key part of the manager’s plans.

The 18-year-old has been in productive form in the final third for his team, finding the back of the net eight times in the Bundesliga and contributing with an impressive 15 assists this season.

Sancho, a fully-fledged England international despite his tender age, would not come cheaply, however.

The Evening Standard’s report indicates that a fee in excess of £80 million will be required from potential suitors such as United if they are to convince Dortmund to sell their young star, who has also been eyed by Paris Saint-Germain.
