Club legend urges Manchester United not give up on Sancho pursuit

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has urged his former team not to give up on the pursuit of Borussia Dortmund wonder kid Jadon Sancho this summer. 

United have been chasing for the signature of Sancho as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bolster his squad ahead of next season. Despite the Premier League side being confident of securing Sancho's services, Dortmund's chief Michael Zorc revealed the cub is not planning on letting the England international leave this summer. 

 "He is fantastic. If he does come he’ll be an added value in terms of quality, no doubt," Ferdinand hailed Sancho. 

Top players 

"Manchester United need top players who are going to have an effect on their first XI and I think Jadon Sancho falls into that category."

"If you look at successful Man United sides over the years, successful periods, there were players fighting for every position and if you substitute one out and you brought one in there was no change in the quality or the output."

The 20-year-old was in fine form for Dortmund last season, netting 17 goals while providing 16 assists in the 32 Bundesliga matches.
