Man Utd lead Sancho race – but he WhatsApp chats Arsenal star every day

Manchester United are leading the race to sign Dortmund wonderkid Jadon Sancho in the summer transfer window.

But it seems the England international has a small affiliation with Arsenal as he messages forward Reiss Nelson on WhatsApp every day.

"I've got love for him; he's got love for me," said Sancho, as reported by FourFourTwo magazine back in 2019. "We just keep on pushing each other."

Nelson, who was on loan at German club Hoffenheim at the time, added: "We message each other every day. If he's got a game a day before mine, I'm like, 'Sanch, you know what you have to do'."

Sancho is tipped to complete a £120million transfer to Manchester United when the season finally comes to a close.

The former Man City forward has been dropping hints in recent weeks while observing the global lockdown prompted by the coronavirus pandemic.

While filming a recent Instagram Live, Sancho was told to take a sip of water if he intends to sign for Manchester United.

Sancho responded to the message from by taking a sip of water from his bottle, much to the delight of the Red Devils supporters who had tuned in.

Sancho isn't the only one who has been making full use of Instagram Live during the lockdown, with Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand releasing videos of himself from time to time.

In one recent video, Ferdinand discussed the possibility of United signing Sancho, and spoke out about why he rates the teenager so highly.

"He's one of the best young kids in the world at the moment. He has been unbelievable, he's a player of huge potential," said Ferdinand of Sancho.

"[Ousmane] Dembele, who was at Dortmund then went to Barcelona, was thought of similarly to Sancho and went [to a big club] for big money and it didn't work out for him.

"I don't want to see that for Jadon. I want him to go to a team where he will play and then improve. He's going to be expensive but I think Manchester United is the place for him to go, but I'm biased.
