A report claims that Rabbi Matondo is one of three alternative targets Manchester United have lined up should they miss out on Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho.

Manchester United have reportedly lined up three alternative attacking options in case they miss out on Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

England international Sancho is believed to be United's primary target ahead of the summer transfer window, despite his nine-figure valuation.

According to the Manchester Evening News, however, the Red Devils have a back-up plan in place should a move for the 20-year-old fall through.

Argentine winger Thiago Almada is one supposed alternative, having impressed for Velez Sarsfield in his homeland, while young Wales duo Rabbi Matondo and David Brooks are also being considered.

Matondo has featured regularly for Schalke 04 since joining from Manchester City last year and has also been touted as a target for Arsenal and Real Madrid.

Bournemouth youngster Brooks was one of the standout young stars in the Premier League last year, meanwhile, but he has not featured in 2019-20 due to a long-term injury.
