One determined Manchester United fan has decided to go out of his way to attempt to help the club acquire their long-term target Jadon Sancho.
The ambitious fan went to the lengths of launching a go fund me to try help his club bring the talented England forward to Old Trafford before the transfer window shuts on October 5.
Sancho, who was involved in more than 40 goals (20 goals,20 assists) for Dortmund this season, has been heavily linked with United but Dortmund reportedly offered him a new deal to fend off interest.
Amid reports a transfer is imminent, the youngster has been playing in friendlies for Dortmund.
United fans have been plunged into a tedious wave of uncertainty concerning the Sancho situation and at one time, it was almost certain he was bound for the Premier League.
For one ardent fan, he seems to have had enough of the speculation and decided to take matters into his own hands, quite literally.
Borussia Dortmund currently value Sancho at around £108 million and a fan identified as Matthew Kelley wants to help raise funds to acquire the talent.
So far, his ambitious initiative has only raised £75 but he remains optimistic.
On his decision to establish the GoFundMe Kelley analysed that the Manchester United hierarchy was not reliable enough to single-handedly complete the Sancho deal.
"I'm sick of seeing that boy Dan James run with the ball like a bull that sees a red flag. I'm raising money for the transfer for Manchester United as they can't afford him for some strange reason,” the fan stated.
United have been fairly quiet in the transfer market this season, having only signed Donny Van de Beek from Ajax.
Even then, some pundits have analysed Van De Beek’s signing as a panic buy to appease fans who are increasingly growing discontent with the lack of transfer activity within the Manchester United camp.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Jadon Sancho has been on the radar of Manchester United for some time now and the player is interested in a move to the Premier League club, but he is confused on what step to take.
SunSport reported that the player is in a dilemma on whether to demand to leave Dortmund or to simply hand in a transfer request.
The 20-year-old had thought his switch to the Old Trafford outfit would have been sealed last week, but somehow nothing has happened.
