Sharpe: Man Utd must do everything to land Sancho

Ex-Manchester United winger Lee Sharpe says the club must use all their power to sign Jadon Sancho this summer.

Borussia Dortmund have made the England international, 19, available for the price of £100m, with Chelsea are also interested in the lively winger.

And Sharpe thinks it is vital that United win the race for Sancho's signature.

"I think he is one of the hottest properties in football at the moment," Sharpe said. "It's not like he's just been doing it for a couple of months.

"He's been doing it for a few seasons now, so he's proved he's got the consistency and proved he can do it week after week at a high level.

"This is the sort of player that United as a team and as a group of fans that you want your club to be linked with. I think he's a fantastic player and would fit in great at United.

"It's very difficult for young players to play at that consistent level. He's done it for a few seasons now, he's created chances, he's making defenders look foolish, he's scoring his fair share of goals and he's showing he's the complete player.

"His work ethic is fantastic and he's the sort of player you want at your club and I'm sure United won't be the only club chasing him. Fingers crossed they get him and he can light up Old Trafford next season."
