Manchester United have allegedly made a new Jadon Sancho bid. And the Red Devils getting closer to signing the Borussia Dortmund ace should be great news for West Ham.

Man United have allegedly made a bid worth up to £75 million for the talented 21-year-old winger (Sky Sports).
Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems determined to get his man.
And if Sancho does eventually end up at Old Trafford, Jesse Lingard will have even less chances to play regular first-team football for Manchester United.
News broke last week that the 28-year-old might actually want to stay at Man United and fight for his place (The Sun).
It seems as though that may be even harder for Jesse than it already would have been, however.
Manchester United Sancho bid great news for West Ham
The Premier League giants are desperate to get their hands on the London-born winger.
And if they manage to finally seal a deal for the 21-year-old England international, the door will be wide open for the Hammers to sign Jesse Lingard.
The 28-year-old enjoyed a wonderful loan spell at the London Stadium last season.
He racked up nine goals and four assists in just 16 Premier League games for West Ham.
Signing Lingard permanently this summer will be crucial for David Moyes.
With European football on the horizon, we need all the quality and experience that we can get our hands on.
And if Sancho eventually joins Manchester United, West Ham’s chances of snaring Lingard will surely increase massively.
