BBC Sport reporter David Ornstein claims that he has been told that Manchester United’s chances of signing Jadon Sancho this summer are “50/50”.

The Daily Mail reported last week that no Champions League football ‘has put a big dent in their hopes’ to sign Sancho after persistent rumours that he could join the Red Devils in the summer.

And Ornstein has revealed that despite the interest, there is no guarantees that United will be able to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho.

“The big one which not people have spoken about is Jadon Sancho,” Ornstein told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Now Jadon Sancho is among the top targets at Manchester United I understand.

“And Manchester United would be his preferred option if he was to come back and return to the Premier League during this transfer window.

“I’m told that a couple of months this was looking like it would be nailed on.

“However, he [Sancho] is reluctant to give up Champions League football.

“He is reluctant to join an unstable club. He wants stability and he wants to win things.

“I’m told ‘never say never but as things stand it’s 50/50 on that one’.

“PSG, Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona have also shown firm interest in him.

“But there’s been no other interest from Premier League clubs.

“He won’t move for the sake of it, it has to be right for him and the fee this summer would be in excess of £100m.”
