Townsend tells Man Utd: Pay what it takes to sign Sancho

Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend has told Manchester United to pay what it takes to land Borussia Dortmund whiz Jadon Sancho.

Townsend has urged United to complete a deal for Jadon Sancho.

Speaking in an interview with talkSPORT, Townsend said: “Jadon Sancho is a world-class player, potentially a future a Ballon d'Or winner.

“Paying £110m for a player of his age and his quality, I think he's more than worth that.

“He's English, he's young, I think they're getting a bargain if they are getting him for that price.

“Obviously he's going to bring a lot of creativity, he's a very fast and skilful player, he can play on both wings, he's two-footed, he's played oversees so can handle that pressure of leaving his family.

“He's got it all for someone of such a young age – he's only 20. 'Like I said before, he's a world-class player and at £110m I think Man United are getting a very, very good bargain here."
