Jadon Sancho praised by Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick amid Man Utd links
The ability of Jadon Sancho has been talked up by Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick.
The England international may have failed to inspire Borussia Dortmund to victory in the derby on Tuesday evening but his stock is higher than ever after another tremendous Bundesliga season.
The 1-0 defeat has left their title race in tatters with Joshua Kimmich scoring the only goal of an entertaining fixture, but it was the 20-year-old who caught the attention of Flick during the closing stages.
“I don’t like to talk about players who are under contract to other clubs,” he told a news conference.
“I can say that Jadon Sancho has a high quality but in the end he also does Borussia Dortmund very, very well.
He is a great talent and has enormous qualities. That’s why you simply have to acknowledge that Dortmund has a very good player there.”
Sancho moved to Germany from Manchester City in 2017 and has been widely linked with a return to the Premier League when the transfer window reopens later this year.
Daily Star sport understand that Manchester United are leading the race to sign the £100m-rated star, and have grown increasingly confident of doing so as the season has progressed.
When asked about the potential spending at United in the next transfer window, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains defiant over their financial standing.
The Norwegian told Sky Sports earlier this week: “I think Mason [Greenwood], Anthony [Martial] and Marcus [Rashford] have been fantastic this season, they’ve scored up to 50 goals between them.
“Marcus got his injury, on course for his best season, Anthony too, and Mason of course is just a unique talent with his goal-scoring ability.
“But we’re always looking to improve the squad.
This uncertainty in the market now, who knows how football and the market is going to be, but I’m very happy with the squad I’ve got.
“Today’s world is different to what it was two months ago. We’ve got to adjust, adapt, there’s clubs out there struggling more than us financially.
“It’s a new world, and I think the transfer market this summer will be completely different to what anyone thought it would be.”
