Jadon Sancho would add “another layer to the cake” at Manchester United, says Wes Brown, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer urged to remain in the market for “exciting” additions.

The Red Devils have long been linked with a move to bring Sancho back to England.

He left Manchester City’s academy system in 2017 and has gone on to flourish in the Bundesliga, becoming an international performer and one of the hottest prospects on the planet.

United are ready to buy into that ability, but are finding discussions with Dortmund tough – as the German giants are understandably reluctant to sell.

Brown hopes those in charge at Old Trafford will persevere, with Sancho boasting the potential to be another shrewd addition to what has become a promising young squad.

The former United defender told Sky Sports: “We’ve got some young, exciting attacking players but Sancho would be another layer of the cake.

“He’s exciting, he’s young, he can score goals and is good with assists. If they can get that done it would be perfect.

“United can always improve. The defence, midfield; the more competition going on all over the field, the better the team becomes.”
