JADON SANCHO can “handle the pressure” at Manchester United, according to Jamie Redknapp.
SunSport revealed yesterday the Red Devils have agreed almost every detail of the deal to sign the winger from Borussia Dortmund and footballer turned pundit Redknapp thinks he can live up to the £120million fee.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Football Show, Redknapp said: “We are talking about an incredible talent, someone that has taken some really good decisions, went abroad and who took a risk to a certain extent.
“It paid off, playing amazing football in the Champions League and for his country now.
“His next move is so important, he has to make sure he gets in the team and plays regularly.
“He is such an amazing talent, one of the best I’ve seen in a long time. Top five in the world in a few years, he has that much ability.
“If he goes to United, everyone knows the pressure of playing for a big club but he looks like he can handle the pressure and it would be a brilliant move if he goes there.
“In the Premier League, he is the one player I’d love to see right now.”
Chelsea also want Sancho, 20, but he is keen on joining Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, three years after leaving City.
SunSport understands the length of Sancho’s contract, his salary, bonuses and a huge buyout clause have been sorted out over months of secret talks.
United must now finalise a fee with Dortmund — which is set to become a record fee for a British club.
The German giants are determined to pocket MORE than the £89million that United paid to bring back Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016.
London-born Sancho left City, aged 17, after becoming fed up at his lack of action under boss Pep Guardiola.
But he has been considering a return to England ever since United made first contact last summer.
In September, Dortmund chief Michael Zorc revealed: “A meeting did take place. United invited the agent.”
