Man Utd target Sancho hails Rashford as best he's played with

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has spoken of his admiration for Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford.

Only this week, United reportedly lined up a final take-it-or-leave-it £90million offer for a player they have been trying to sign all summer.

Sancho has given his verdict on the five most skilful players he has ever played with – and Manchester United's Marcus Rashford is top of the list.

The Dortmund star chose to name the United forward and his England teammate, just as the Red Devils make a final push to sign the talented winger before the October 5 transfer deadline.

Speaking to the Chunkz and Yung Filly YouTube channel, Sancho was asked, 'Who is the most skilful player you have played with?'

Sancho joined Germany's Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City in August 2017

"It would have to be Neymar, he is different with it," said Sancho initially, before he realised it was players he had played with and then focused on club and England team mates.

"Played with – Marcus Rashford," he added.

"When I was at City Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva. It would probably be David Silva. He just dictates play."
