Man Utd boss Rangnick: I tried to sign Sancho

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick admits he tried to sign Jadon Sancho early in his career.

Sancho chose Borussia Dortmund over RB Leipzig when leaving Manchester City in 2017.

“I am very excited," Rangnick told manutd.com. “I mean, they have so many top, talented young players – Jadon Sancho I know from the German Bundesliga.

“As a matter of fact, I met him when he was 17, in London. At the time, we were trying to convince him to come to Leipzig and he decided a couple of months later to come to [Borussia] Dortmund, which was not a wrong step from his perspective.

Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, there are so many top, talented young players in the squad and, on top of that, the experienced top players. To work with those kind of players and to help them to get better, yeah, I'm very much looking forward to that."
