Jadon Sancho got Manchester United fans excited as he named Marcus Rashford as the most skillful player he has ever played with.
United remain interested in a move for priority target Sancho before the summer transfer deadline next month, but know it will likely take a British-record fee to lure him to Old Trafford.
Borussia Dortmund remain adamant they will not lose the England international this summer after United failed to agree a deal before their self-imposed transfer deadline of 10 August.
Speaking to Pro:Direct Soccer Sancho was asked the most skillful played he's played with to which he answered: "Marcus Rashford."
Begging to be signed
He’s literally begging us to sign him with statements like that. Rashford hasn’t dribbled past competent defenders since his injury.— Aaron West (@aaronwestgaming) September 24, 2020

He itching to play with Rashy man @ManUtd just get it done ffs— Farnaz (@Farnaz936) September 24, 2020
If it wasn't for Rashford, I don't think Sanchol would even consider coming to United.— WendyGrant (@WendyKGrant) September 25, 2020
The missing piece
An attacking 5 of Pogba, Bruno, Rashford, Toto and that monster Greenwood is already very potent. With Sancho we'd be damn near expected to win the league— Lord Bae-less️ (@Call_Me_Lum) September 24, 2020

As things stand United have made progress in talks over Sancho's wages and agent's fees, but United and Dortmund remain far apart in their valuation of the player, with the Westfalenstadion club understood to be holding out for €120million for the England international.
