The Irish Independent claim Rashford and Sancho have become great friends having played together for England.
Rashford has told Solskjaer all about Sancho and informed his manager the 20-year-old ‘decent’ and ‘dependable’.
Chelsea and Liverpool are keen to sign Sancho, as well as Real Madrid, and United will have to fend off some serious competition for the winger.
But Rashford has also told Solskjaer that Sancho is an admirer of what the Norwegian has been trying to build at Old Trafford.
The club have already spent a small fortune on Solskjaer’s vision for the Red Devils and Dortmund have slapped a £120million price tag on Sancho.
Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke fuelled speculation about Sancho’s future this week by hinting the England international can leave if he wants to.
‘You always have to respect what the player wants,’ he told Bild.
‘We said before coronavirus that our favourite idea is that Jadon will stay with us.
‘I can say that even the very rich clubs, despite the existing crisis, don’t believe they can go on a bargain tour with us.
‘We don’t have to sell anyone below value.’
United’s plan to sign Sancho this summer could be derailed by the coronavirus pandemic.
