Manchester United 'to revive Jadon Sancho pursuit this summer'

Manchester United are expected to revive their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho this summer, according to journalist Raphael Honigstein.

Borussia Dortmund are reportedly expecting to receive offers for Manchester United target Jadon Sancho in the months leading up to the summer transfer window.

The England international struggled for form during the early stages of the campaign, but he is now starting to hit top gear with six goals and 11 assists in all competitions.

Sancho recently affirmed that he is only focused on Dortmund despite ongoing speculation over his future, and German journalist Raphael Honigstein believes that United will indeed move for the attacker again in the summer.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Honigstein said: "He's beginning to click again. He looks really sharp, he looks up for it.

"By all accounts, he's had a really good, small, winter break. A few days off where he's come back full of energy. And you can see it on the pitch. And I think the debates or the names being mentioned will increase again, because his form is picking up again.

"But everybody in Dortmund knows nothing will happen in January, the player is not agitating for a move, there's a very clear agreement that transfers of that magnitude at Dortmund will only happen in the summer.

"There was a big transfer announced in January a couple of years ago. That was Christian Pulisic [to Chelsea]. But remember, even his deal was the deal for the summer.

"So no one's stopping United, if they went out, and felt really confident, to say, 'let's do this deal now, let's make sure we get in now'. And maybe then announce it at the end of January. That's inherently possible.

"We just haven't seen or heard anything to suggest that they are indeed ready and willing to come back to that negotiation at the moment. I think everyone at Dortmund is under no illusions that the player wants to leave.

"But they think that the offers and the real negotiations will start closer to towards spring when clubs are perhaps in a better position to understand how much money they'll have available for their transfer window in the summer."

United's pursuit of the 20-year-old last summer was well-documented, but the Red Devils are reportedly set to be joined by Liverpool and Chelsea in the race for his signature this time around.
