Manchester United have made Jadon Sancho their top priority ahead of the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are keen on a deal to bring the 19-year-old winger to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund in the new year as they look to bolster their squad.

The same story says that Manchester United are preparing a £100m bid for the teenager as they look to try and lure the England international back to the Premier League.

According to the same story, Solskjaer is set to be handed the budget he needs to land Sancho after the exit of Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan this summer.

The article claims that signing a creative midfielder in the January transfer window is Solskjaer’s top priority, and he has singled out Sancho as his number one target.

Sancho has already scored two goals and made one assist for Dortmund this season and he is rated as one of Europe’s most exciting young attacking players.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon as they look to return to winning ways in the top flight.
