'Sancho will improve' - £73m starlet can be a 'top forward' for Man Utd over next 15 years, insists Solskjaer

The Norwegian boss is confident the winger will fulfil his potential despite a difficult start to life at Old Trafford

Jadon Sancho "is learning all the time and will improve" according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who says the £73 million ($100m) starlet is capable of being "a top forward" for Manchester United over the next 15 years.

United finally managed to get their hands on a long-term transfer target in July, prising Sancho away from Borussia Dortmund on a five-year contract.

The 21-year-old has endured a slow start to life at Old Trafford, struggling to make an impact in his first five appearances, but Solskjaer has no doubt he will go on to fulfil his potential as he matures and develops his game.
