Manchester United head into this season without many natural strikers following the release of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan in the summer.
Solskjaer’s decision to let go of the Belgian and Chilean internationals has backfired as his side continue to struggle to score goals.
After seeing Marcus Rashford missed a glorious chance in yesterday’s 1-1 draw against Arsenal, the Norwegian boss is now set to go all the way to bring England and Borussia Dortmund’s winger cum striker Jadon Sancho to the Theatre of Dreams in January.
According to the Evening Standard, the Red Devils boss has identified the young striker as the right solution to his goalscoring problems and he can’t wait to have him at Old Trafford.
The media outlet went further to reveal that Bundesliga side Dortmund will release the youngster for nothing less than £100m and United are more than willing to meet the demand.
Jadon Sancho has been in stunning form for Dortmund since he joined the team from Manchester City in 2017, he has scored three goals and five assists having played just six league games this season.
Meanwhile, James Maddison is another attack-minded player linked with a switch to Old Trafford in the upcoming transaction period.
