Manchester United legend Andy Cole believes Jadon Sancho is the right player for the club and has backed the club’s move for him this summer.

The 20 year old has been a long term target for the club, but the Red Devils are reportedly reluctant to meet Borussia Dortmund’s £100million asking price for Sancho and are only willing to pay around half that fee to land the England international given the current financial climate.

Asked on the club’s Sancho move, Cole told MUTV: “You’re always looking to bring in players.

“There’s talk of Jadon Sancho coming in. Would he give Manchester United something different? Of course he would.

“I’m not going to sit here and say, ‘Oh no, he’s not good enough!’ because of course he’s good enough.

“He’s got pace, he’s got the ability to go past players, score goals and create.”
