Bayern Munich are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho amid interest from Man Utd, according to reports.

The England international winger has been in outstanding form for the Bundesliga outfit this season, notching 17 goals and adding 19 assists from just 35 appearances across all competitions.

It was claimed back in April that he had agreed to provisional personal terms over a switch to Old Trafford, although no transfer agreement has been finalised as Man Utd hope that Dortmund’s will lower their hefty asking price.

The Red Devils could have some competition though in the form of Bundesliga champions Bayern with ESPN sources claiming that the German outfit ‘made enquiries about him before the coronavirus shutdown’.

Despite Bayern’s interest in Manchester City winger Leroy Sane, the report adds that the Bundesliga side are ‘keeping their options open and will press ahead with a bid for Sancho if any move for Sane stalls’.

However, any bid from Bayern could ‘include a premium’ with Dortmund keen to shake off the tag that they are a ‘feeder club’ for their domestic rivals.

Sancho remains ‘one of the key pillars’ in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s ‘United rebuild’ and the report claims that Man Utd are still the favourites to land the England international.
