Negotiations are still ongoing on what would be a club record for the Sancho valued at £ 108million, but United are considering alternatives with their first game of the new season just next week.
The Borussia Dortmund winger remains the main attraction for most United fans and now they have been put into overdrive by Phelan’s latest social media activity.
Phelan only joined Instagram earlier this week, but eagle-eyed fans noticed that Sancho was one of the first people he chose to follow on the social media platform, and for some supporters, that was enough to convince them of an upcoming move.
Micky Phelan following Sancho on Insta is better than an announcement video for me. Welcome to the Jadon theater pic.twitter.com/FB0eGLn8hG

United have less than four weeks to strike a deal with Dortmund star Sancho, with the summer transfer window due to end on October 5.
