Man Utd make three-man transfer wishlist including ‘next Lionel Messi’ Thiago Almada if they fail to land Jadon Sancho

THE 'new Lionel Messi' Thiago Almada is on Manchester United's three-man wishlist if they cannot complete the £105million signing of Jadon Sancho.

Bournemouth's David Brooks and Schalke winger Rabbi Matondo are also on their wanted list, should they miss out on Sancho, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Real Madrid are the latest club to pursue Borussia Dortmund and England star Sancho, 20.

But Argentina starlet Almada is the jewel in the crown for United if they cannot get Sancho.

He plays for Club Atlético Vélez Sarsfield in Bueno Aires and is wanted by several top clubs.

The 19-year-old can play up front or on the wing, which would give United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer more options.

Manchester City came close to signing him last summer before he signed a contract extension with the Superliga club - and will go back in for him again.

Media in Argentina have labelled him the new Messi.

Wales winger Brooks, a favourite for United fans, has spent much of this season injured but he made a huge impression on Old Trafford chiefs when he burst onto the Premier League stage in the 2018/19 campaign after his £15m move from Sheffield United.

Meanwhile, his Wales colleague Matondo, 19, is another possibility.

The Liverpool-born youngster has impressed in the Bundesliga this season.

But Sancho remains United's main target.

However, after Saturday's hat-trick for Dortmund took his tally to 20 goals this term, United are readying themselves for a bidding war this summer.
