Manchester United have been backed to sell new signing Jadon Sancho for double his £73million transfer fee by former Red Devils midfielder Paul Ince.
United are set to end a protracted transfer saga by signing Sancho next week when the winger completes his move following his involvement with England at Euro 2020.
A deal for the 21-year-old has been agreed with Borussia Dortmund but Sancho is yet to complete a medical.
Sancho will complete boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dream attacking quartet, with the winger accompanying Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani.
The former Manchester City youth starlet will arrive at Old Trafford having had a successful four years with Dortmund in the Bundesliga.

He has scored 50 goals and provided a further 64 assists in 137 appearances for the German side.
Former England man Ince believes United will be able to make a huge profit on Sancho, despite him costing a sizeable £73m.
“People might suggest he’ll feel added pressure at United because of his price tag, but I don’t agree,” the 53-year-old told the Daily Star.
“He doesn’t decide how much he costs, so it won’t affect him mentally.

“Look at how much United spent on Donny van de Beek and Fred.
“Getting Sancho for £73million could be a bargain. If he performs the way he’s capable of performing, they can always sell him on for double!”
Sancho has been part of England’s Euro 2020 squad but his only start came in the 4-0 quarter-final thrashing of Ukraine.
He has had to battle with Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden for the right-wing role in Gareth Southgate’s side.
Ince’s former United team-mate Paul Parker disagrees with him, though, suggesting that he has not seen Sancho do anything that warrants such a big transfer fee.
“I haven’t seen enough in my opinion for him [Sancho] to warrant that kind of money,” Parker exclusively told Express Sport last week.
“But Manchester United paying over the odds is something which everyone is quite used to at this moment in time.
“I would come out and say there’s a lot of people who watch German football, and I haven’t watched a lot of it, [but] I see high lines.
“I don’t see great defending at all in the goals those teams concede. It’s quite relatively high.
“I look at Bayern Munich this season and look at their national team, and there’s an issue going on with their league because their league is geared towards their national team.
“Every team works toward making their national team as strong as possible and it hasn’t really gone that way.
“So for him to come into the Premier League, there was no one else competing with Manchester United to get him, so I’m going to have to wait and see how the cookie crumbles.”
