Jadon Sancho Drops Transfer Hint With Social Media Slip Up
Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has potentially dropped a summer transfer hint to Manchester United on Twitter, before hastily removing the proof by undoing his re-tweet.
Jadon Sancho is currently one of the most sought-after talents in Europe and has recently been linked with Manchester United for an astonishing £100 million, as well as several other big name clubs, despite being just 18-years-old.
Despite being on international duty with England this week the Borussia Dortmund winger still managed to add fuel to the fire with a simple retweet on social media.
The mishap arose following former United defender Rio Ferdinand's interview with Goal where he urged the Red Devils to make the move for Sancho.
Goal shared part of their interview on Twitter and added: "Ferdinand would love to see Sancho in a Man Utd shirt."
Sancho, currently on international duty with England, then re-tweeted it before deleting the post.
Ferdinand, who knows Sancho's family personally, feels that the teenager would be a great fit at United.
"I would take him all day," the 40-year-old told Goal, "English, young, hungry and talented, that's all I need to know.
"I have known Jadon since he was a kid, knew him through friends. I have known his family since he was a kid before he was even born.
"He has got the mentality. The mentality is a big part of it all, whether he has the physical attributes or not.
"The kid's mentality, to leave Manchester City, who wanted him to stay, to just say 'my ability deserves it and I think I can do it straight away, right now. I am not waiting.'
"And he has gone and done that. You have to respect that.
"So, if someone asked me whether I would take Jadon Sancho, with all due respect to Borussia Dortmund, I would say yes, 100 per cent."
Sancho has exploded onto the scene since his move to Germany with nine goals and 17 assists in 35 appearances for Lucien Favre's side.
Where will we see this young, English talent next season, should he stay in Germany or move back to England? Let us know down below.
