According to The Mirror, Manchester United are in the front-running to acquire the signature of former Manchester City youth academy player Jadon Sancho. The Englishman is enduring a tough season in Germany after bursting on to the scene last year. Sancho has faced disciplinary action after returning late from international duty as the forward was left out from the squad by Coach Lucian Favre for a match against Bundesliga leaders Monchengladbach, which Dortmund won 1-0. The youngster was also substituted early in the first half during the Bayer Munich clash, in which his side were hammered 4-0. After having a fallout with the coach, Sancho is seriously considering leaving the club at the turn of the year.

The Danish international’s preferred destination is Spain but Spurs might look to cash in on the midfielder in January instead of losing him for free in summer.
