Juan Mata hails Jadon Sancho a 'great player' amid Manchester United interest

Dortmund are thought to want around £120million for their star man who could command wages of £150,000 a week.

The winger has 17 goals and 19 assists in all competitions in what has been another impressive season in Germany.

But considering the potential of Sancho, the prices have been evaluated as fair in the current market.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic brought football to a halt across Europe, the 11-time capped English global had already notched 17 goals, to go along with 19 assists.

A move to Old Trafford would also see Sancho link up with England teammate Marcus Rashford.

Jadon Sancho has been heavily linked with a move away from Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.

The outfit in question?

Manchester United are looking to pull off a £180m double swoop for Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer steps-up his transfer plans this summer, according to the Evening Standard.

As per a report from the reliable Athletic, the English youngster is "very open" to joining Manchester United ahead of next season.

He said: "It would be good [if Sancho joined United]".

"There might be a situation that Man United can exploit because we are the biggest club, and we are well off".

"Jadon Sancho would probably be number one".

Speaking on Instagram Live this morning, Juan Mata was drawn on the speculation linking the Red Devils with the gifted attacker.

You look at what you've got around you, if he's better than what you've already got, and I can say, having watched him play, I feel as though he would complement what United have already got tenfold. We all know he's a great player.
