Manchester United transfer target Jadon Sancho has highlighted the progress of wonderkids Bukayo Saka and Mason Greenwood, who are ‘doing a madness’ in the Premier League.

Saka has been a vital player for the Gunners at the age of just 18, being deployed at left-back, central midfield and on the wing, and excelling in all those positions.

The teenager’s excellent form last season – in which he registered 11 assists – earned him a new long-term contract at the Emirates.

Meanwhile, Greenwood has enjoyed a breakthrough season for United, scoring an impressive 17 goals in all competitions.

The 18-year-old has earned praise for his natural goalscoring ability and the ease at which he can switch between using both feet.

England’s national team will prosper from the development of two of their brightest future stars, but they will have to wait for their chance with the Euros being delayed until next year due to the Covid-19 crisis.

Sancho – who has been strongly linked with a switch from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United this summer – admitted the form of the likes of Saka and Greenwood will have given Gareth Southgate a selection headache ahead of next week’s announcement of the England squad for their upcoming Nations League campaign.

‘I feel like the England squad has a lot of players who are interesting at the moment,’ Sancho told SoccerBible. ‘It’s going to be interesting to see who makes the squad.

‘The players we have now are great and the young players that are coming up now like Bukayo Saka, Mason Greenwood – these guys are talented.

‘It’s interesting to see what they’re doing week in, week out. They’re doing a madness so it’s going to be a very tough decision for Gareth Southgate to make.

‘Again it’s healthy competition and you’ve just got to do your thing and everyone is going to be doing their best. It’s exciting to see.’
