Ralf Rangnick has revealed his best United winger, he said Jadon Sancho is the best offensive winger not just in Manchester but the whole of Europe. The Man United interim boss made the revelation during an interview with Sky Sports.
He said: “We were scouting him for four years at Leipzig and we even met Jadon, his family and his agent three years ago.
“[Then RB Leipzig manager] Ralph Hasenhuttl and myself met them in London but unfortunately he decided to then go to Borussia Dortmund.
“It would’ve been a very expensive transfer for us, but in the end, Jadon decided to join Dortmund. His development in the last three years has been amazing. He’s one of the best wing offensive players in Europe currently.
“If you look at his statistics last season in the Bundesliga he had 18 goals and 18 assists. As a wing player, those statistics are phenomenal and currently in Europe I don’t see any other player with his combination of pace, being dangerous in front of goal and ability to get assists.
“He’s one of the biggest talents in Europe and Dortmund know he’s one of the most important players …”
Rangnick will now be able to work with Sancho himself at Man United after taking over as the club’s interim manager. The Englishman should fit in well with the German manager’s style and could really shine under the new gaffer.
Sancho has picked up form in recent weeks, scoring 2 goals in his last 2 appearances for United.
