Manchester United hope that Marcus Rashford can help lure Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly hoping that Marcus Rashford can help lure Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford during this summer's transfer window.

The Red Devils continue to be strongly linked with a move for the Borussia Dortmund attacker, although Chelsea and Liverpool are just two of a number of other clubs to be credited with an interest.

Rashford recently urged Sancho to move to United when asked about a potential link-up at the Theatre of Dreams.

According to the Evening Standard, Rashford is currently 'taking the lead' when it comes to convincing the former Manchester City youngster to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

Sancho has been in excellent form for BVB during the 2019-20 season, finding the back of the net on 17 occasions in 35 appearances, in addition to registering 19 assists.

Rashford, meanwhile, was enjoying his best-ever scoring campaign - netting 19 times in all competitions - before picking up a back problem in January.
