Juan Mata has spoken out about Manchester United transfer target Jadon Sancho, labelling him a great player.
Fans have become excited by such news, with one now taking to Mata on Instagram for answers. The Spaniard replied to the above question:
“What do you want me to say? We all know he’s a great player. He’s having a fantastic season at Dortmund.”– Mata on Sancho joining Manchester United
With 17 goals and 19 assists to his name this campaign, Mata’s comments are certainly justified. Sancho has grown to become one of the hottest talents across Europe, with both Chelsea and Liverpool also being cited as potential buyers.

Although United appear to be the favourites for his signature though, Mata is not giving anything away with the potential transfer:

Such a reply won’t come as a surprise to fans, as players are always hesitant to get involved with these type of stories. Whilst he has not fuelled the speculation any further, it’s clear that he has given Sancho his seal of approval.
