Man Utd could use Jesse Lingard as bait in bid to finally seal Jadon Sancho transfer as Dortmund eye West Ham loanee
JESSE LINGARD is being eyed by Borussia Dortmund over a sensational switch – and could be used in a deal to bring Jadon Sancho to Manchester United.
The England winger has had a stunning loan spell at West Ham.
And Hammers boss David Moyes is keen to sign him on a permanent deal this summer.
His £100,000-a-week wage demands are an issue though, and are putting doubt on him staying at the London Stadium beyond this season.
Dortmund are keeping tabs on the 28-year-old and are big admirers – which United may use in a move for one of their top targets in Sancho.
The 21-year-old ex-Man City ace is high on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wish list again, after a failed swoop last summer.
The German giants are understood to want £100m – but that price could be brought down with the inclusion of Lingard.
Dortmund are keen to get as much as possible for Sancho, as they have to hand City 15 per cent of the overall transfer fee.
That could mean a £16m cash windfall for Pep Guardiola’s side from a clause inserted in his switch to Germany in 2017.
United value Lingard at around £20m, and would demand that fee despite having just one-year left on his Old Trafford contract.

Lingard has been a sensation since joining the Hammers, scoring nine times in 13 Premier League appearances.
Dortmund have shown interest in Mason Greenwood in the past, and wanted to take the Three Lions ace on loan.
But the Red Devils will reject ANY offer for one of their prize assets and see a big future for the 19-year-old academy graduate.
