Jadon Sancho

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has reportedly identified Borussia Dortmund and England attacker Jadon Sancho as a summer transfer target.

According to Bild, Zidane has instructed club president Florentino Perez to try and recruit the attacker as part of his club overhaul.

Manchester United are also monitoring Sancho, with Dortmund expected to ask for around £100 million for the 19-year-old.

Zidane has confirmed that he wants to introduce some fresh faces into his setup at Real but has been coy over specifically who. 

He has been linked with Eden Hazard, Paul Pogba and Christian Eriksen but tried to silence the transfer rumours around the club prior to Real's 3-0 win over Athletic Bilbao last weekend.

'I know what I want and with the club I will talk about the profiles of players I want, but not now,' Zidane said.

'There is nothing concrete. I have some ideas and desire to change things. What I have clear in my head are the profiles of players I want, but everything will depend on the market.'

United, meanwhile, are expected to spend big once again themselves as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plots an overhaul of his squad in an attempt to usher in a more successful era at Old Trafford. 

Sancho, a product of Manchester City's youth academy, has established himself as one of the Bundesliga's leading stars.

He has played 39 times for Dortmund in all competitions, scoring 12 times and assisting an impressive 18 goals. 

He made his England debut in October as a substitute in the 0-0 draw with Croatia and has four caps to his name to date.

Dortmund are second in the Bundesliga, a point behind leaders Bayern Munich with four games remaining.
