Manchester United could reportedly hold off on strengthening their defence this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would prefer a big-money transfer swoop for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
The England international is one of the most exciting young talents on the planet at the moment, and seems a perfect fit for the Red Devils’ needs at the moment.

Alexis Sanchez’s Old Trafford days are surely up after flopping so spectacularly since his move from Arsenal last season, and a young talent like Sancho seems the ideal long-term replacement.
According to the Sun, a right-winger like Sancho is Solskjaer’s priority for the summer, with big names like Douglas Costa and Ivan Perisic also thought to be on United’s radar despite a defender previously looking like being the most pressing issue.
However, their report mentions going all out for the £100million-rated Sancho as the main plan, which would undoubtedly be an exciting move, while Solskjaer would give more chances for this current crop of defenders to prove themselves.
