Speaking to Paddy Power, Paul Ince said: “It’s about time Manchester United got their player recruitment right. They want attacking football and signing Jadon Sancho is the excitement going forward that they’ve been longing for.
“Sancho is heading to Man United, and fans should be excited. Look at his goals and displays for Borussia Dortmund these last two years! The fans know they’ve got an exciting player, a natural winger.
“He’s a player who wants to get the ball and beat someone. Sancho likes to drift inside, as we have seen for England, and he’s extremely comfortable on the ball whilst scoring goals. He’s a superb acquisition.”
“He’s a superb acquisition.”

The Red Devils have reached an ‘agreement in principle’ with Dortmund over Sancho and the transfer will be completed after Euro 2020.
Excitement is growing around Old Trafford ahead of Solskjaer and co’s season opener against Leeds United on Saturday, August 14, and Ince is not alone in his rating of the Sancho deal.
SportVectru recently reported, United captain Harry Maguire told the media on Monday: “Jadon is a top player, exceptional talent, a young lad with a lot of experience.
“His numbers speak for themselves, what he has done over in Germany. He is a great player. I don’t think it is a done deal yet.
“We can’t confirm he is a Manchester United player, I know it is close but he is still a Dortmund player as it stands,” Maguire noted.
“Of course, it is exciting times ahead and hopefully we will get it across the line.”
