Manchester United are increasingly confident of landing Borussia Dortmund flyer Jadon Sancho in the next available transfer window.
And good pal Marcus Rashford has already had a word with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to talk up the 20-year-old's credentials.
The Irish Independent report the United pair have had a discussion about Sancho, with Rashford labelling him 'decent' and 'dependable'.
And it seems like the Dortmund star is on the same page when it comes to a move to United when the transfer window reopens.
The same publication goes on to say that Sancho has 'unofficially confirmed' a return to Manchester with United, three years after leaving the city following his Manchester City departure.
The Etihad outfit have first refusal on the player they flogged for just £8m back in 2017.
But United are leading the race for his signature, ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool.
The Red Devils remain increasingly confident they can fight off their Premier League rivals in the fight for the winger's signature.
And Red Devils chief Ed Woodward and Solskjaer are said to be in agreement over the potential signing.

It is reported United have no qualms over Dortmund's £120m valuation.
That fee would make Sancho the most expensive British signing of all-time, and would set a Premier League record, surpassing the £89m United paid for Paul Pogba in 2016.
The player enjoys good relationships with a host of current United stars, including Rashford.
Sancho celebrated his 20th birthday last week and enjoyed a video chat Lingard on Monday evening, sending United fans into raptures.
The only problem which could scupper a transfer is the date of the next transfer window.
As the coronavirus pandemic halts football across the world, it is unclear whether the summer market will go ahead as planned.
To add, the suspension of the Premier League season would lead to a loss of revenue for all 20 sides, possibly affecting big-money deals in the foreseeable future.
