Utd target dubbed 'generational talent'

English Premier League

Manchester United target Jadon Sancho has been dubbed a 'generational talent' by former Red Devils midfielder Owen Hargreaves.

Sancho, 20, scored his first career hattrick with Borussia Dortmund in the 6-1 thumping over Paderborn on Saturday which marked the record for the youngest player to 30 goals in Bundesliga history.

With 17 goals and as many assists in 27 league games, Sancho joins Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Eden Hazard as the fifth player to reach at least 15 goals and 15 assists in one season across Europe's top-five leagues.

The England wonderkid has strongly been linked with a return to the Premier League, with United mooted as the favourites for a £100-million off-season switch, which Hargreaves suggests is worth the current valuation.

"He makes every team better, that’s for sure," Hargreaves told BT Sport. "Everyone would love to have him. Man United, Man City, Liverpool, I think he’s that good that he gets in all of them.

"United, Chelsea and Arsenal would all love to have him. It depends on personnel and who could afford him?

"It will cost a lost but he’s a generational talent, truly remarkable with his goals and assists and he can play in different positions. He's going to cost a lot but he's worth it, I'd love to see him back in the Premier League."

Overall, Sancho has scored 20 goals and registered 20 assists in 39 games across all competitions for Lucien Favre's side in the 2019/20 campaign.
