Manchester United, according to The Sun, are hoping to land both Jadon Sancho and Kai Havertz this summer. The pair have been in sensational form for Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen respectively, scoring an impressive 33 goals combined. And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to bring the pair to Old Trafford.
It’s been a mixed season for Manchester United, with the club blowing hot and cold ever since Solskjaer’s appointment as manager.
But, recently, it looks as if they’ve turned a corner.
United were on a run of 11 matches without defeat before the coronavirus crisis saw football grind to a halt – their best form since Solskjaer was named permanent manager last March.
Now, the Norwegian is hoping to bolster his squad when the transfer window reopens at the end of the campaign.
Sancho and Havertz are targets – so Express Sport will now take a look at how the Red Devils could line up with the two players.
