Jadon Sancho “would be a brilliant signing” for Manchester United, according to Wes Brown, who has highlighted similarities between the Borussia Dortmund star and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Sancho has enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence in the Bundesliga since moving to Westfalenstadion from Manchester City in 2017.
The 20-year-old is now considered to be one of the brightest young talents in European football, and his numbers for goals and assists continue to improve with each passing season.
Brown would welcome Sancho’s arrival at Old Trafford and thinks he is capable of following in the footsteps of club legend Ronaldo, who is now on the books of Juventus in Serie A.
Asked what the Dortmund attacker could bring to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s line up, the ex-United defender told MUTV:
“Talent and excitement. We need someone exactly like that at the club.
“We’ve had them over the years and I’m sure if we were to sign him he would bring that excitement back to the club. It would be good for the team as well.
“We’ve had players like that in the past, like with Cristiano Ronaldo. They’re the type of player who draw three or four defenders out and make the game a lot easier for the other players.
“If we could do it, it would be a brilliant signing.”
