Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho has hinted that he could be set for a move to Manchester United during an Instagram Live video on Sunday evening.
Sancho, 20, is one of the most highly-sought after young players in the world thanks to his impressive performances in the Bundesliga.
Premier League heavyweights United, Liverpool and Chelsea have been linked with a big-money move for Sancho.
But his activity on social media appears that Old Trafford is Sancho’s preferred destination.
During his video, one fan wrote to the player saying: “Sip water if your (sp) joining united.”
Sancho appears to consider this for a moment, before taking a big gulp of his bottled water.
The reaction sent United supporters into meltdown on Twitter, with one user posting “IT’S HAPPENING!!!” while another added “It was always going to happen.”
It remains to be seen whether a bid comes in for the player from United in the summer, but Dortmund are not expected to accept any offers lower than £100m for the England international.
Sancho’s hint will no doubt come as a boost to striker Marcus Rashford, who has waxed lyrical about the player in recent weeks, and has admitted that he would love to play alongside him at club level.
When asked about a possible move for Sancho on Instagram Q&A with Bleacher Report, Rashford said: “It obviously would be good, Sancho’s a great player, a new generation player.
“It’s definitely exciting to watch him become the player he’s becoming.
“Hopefully we can all play together that would be good.”
Sancho had scored 14 goals and created 15 assists in the Bundesliga before the season was suspended, and his fine form has also seen him win 11 caps for England.
He started his career at Manchester City academy but after failing to break into the first-team he left for Germany in 2017.
