Jadon Sancho’s ex- coach, Louis Lancaster, has expressed belief that Manchester United would be a good place for the star to move to should he decide to leave Borussia Dortmund in the future.

The Red Devils chased the 20 year old unsuccessfully in the past few months, with a disparity in his valuation proving to be the stumbling block.

But while Dortmund have ruled out a sale for their main man in the near future, there is still a big chance the player will be allowed to leave next summer, especially if their £108 million valuation is met, and Lancaster, who worked with the player at the Watford Academy from 2007, before his switch to Manchester City in 2015, believes Old Trafford would be a good destination for him.

He told Tribuna.com, “You need to work for an organisation that’s structurally set up for success. From the top office to the coaching staff.

“There’s a lot of talk about him going to Man United, that’s a club that’s structurally set up for success, a wealth of history, a huge amount of ambition.

“I know a few in the coaching staff and they’re fantastic coaches and people. That would be a great choice for him. They have players who dominate possession so Jadon has more opportunity to move forward.

“It’s football but it’s the same thing for anyone. You know, if you work in recruitment, why would you go somewhere that is not as ambitious as you?”

Recent reports have suggested that Sancho is still top on Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s transfer wishlist, and the Norwegian intends to seal the move soon, with a January offer very likely.
