Juventus ‘won’t enter bidding war for Jadon Sancho unless he prioritises them over Manchester United

Juventus are refusing to be drawn into a bidding war for the signature of wanted Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

The 19-year-old England international is a highly valued prospect, with many European clubs including Manchester United interested in snapping up the winger.

Juventus are another of those clubs, however Italian outlet Calciomercato claim that the Bianconeri will only consider making a move for Sancho if he makes them a priority.

The report states the club are unwilling to get involved in a bidding war and will look elsewhere if they are forced to do so.

It is added that it is unlikely Sancho will prioritise a move to the Serie A, because the teenager has the ‘Premier League in mind as his number one goal’.

Borussia Dortmund are hoping to keep hold of Sancho for another year, but the club’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has admitted they will discuss a move for him to leave if the winger wishes to do so. 

It is believed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side head a long list of teams competing for the signature of Europe’s most in-demand attacking player. 

United are able to meet Dortmund’s financial demands for the player, while having the power to match any rival’s lucrative wage offers.

It is reported that Dortmund will demand a £120m fee in order to sign off on any deal.

The Red Devils are not the only team who are keen on the England international, with Chelsea, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain all interested in his signature.

Sancho joined Borussia Dortmund in 2017, where he has progressed to become of Europe’s most exciting and dangerous attacking young players.

This season has been his best to date, scoring 17 goals and making 19 assists in his 35 games to date.
