Watford legend Luther Blissett has told talkSPORT he believes Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho should sign for Manchester United this summer.
The former Hornets schoolboy is believed to be very keen on returning to the Premier League with the Red Devils identifying the 20-year-old as one of their top transfer targets.
Danny Mills not convinced Jadon Sancho would want to move to Man United
Sancho has been a huge hit in the Bundesliga since joining Dortmund in 2017, scoring 31 goals and contributing 42 assists in just 90 appearances to date.
And that has not gone unnoticed with the former Manchester City academy graduate attracting interest from all across Europe, including Chelsea and Liverpool.
The Red Devils are believed to be in pole position to secure his signature, and are prepared to meet Dortmund’s £120million asking price.
And Blissett feels a return to England is the most plausible option for the attacker this summer, and says a move to United would be an exciting prospect – especially if they secure a spot in next season’s Champions League.

“There are clearly a lot of potential offers on the table. If he’s going to be leaving the Bundesliga now the only country he can really go to is the Premier League,” Blissett said.
“The Premier League is what Serie A was back in the 1980s, you’ve got all the big-name stars there at the end of the day – it’s the place to be.
“He’s just got to choose the place that suits him so when he gets there he’ll be able to perform in the manner he has been doing at Dortmund.
“United have shown big interest, so that will be a big draw for him to go to a club of that stature.

“For me if all the things are in the right place, and especially if they get into the Champions League, then it’s absolutely the right club to join.”
United ace Marcus Rashford said last week on a Bleacher Report Instagram Live that he hopes to play with Sancho in the future, saying: “Hopefully we can all play together, that would be good.
“He plays off the cuff, he’s creative and imaginative, these are the things you need to be world class.”
Juan Mata was also asked by a United fan about the possibility of the Old Trafford outfit signing Sancho on the same social media platform, and replied: “We all know he’s a great player. He’s having a fantastic season at Dortmund.”
