RYAN GIGGS picked out Manchester United top target Jadon Sancho when naming the top three young players in the world.
The 46-year-old also named Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland and current Old Trafford ace Marcus Rashford.
As Giggs hailed Rashford as one of the best young stars on the planet, he also praised the Dortmund duo.
Speaking to Laureus, he said: “I’ve seen him [Rashford] coming through the ranks, such a talented player.
“And you have Jadon Sancho at Dortmund, a young player who’s made the bold decision to leave Manchester City and go to another country at a young age.
“And he really has made a difference.
“His team-mate as well, Erling Haaland who’s scoring lots of goals.”
Manchester United’s hopes of signing Sancho this summer have been boosted by their £140million loan.
The 20-year-old is at the top of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wishlist after scoring 16 goals and making 18 assists this season.
Reports have claimed the Red Devils will even offer Alexis Sanchez as a part of a player-plus-cash deal this summer.

United are huge admirers of the forward, but he snubbed a chance to join them in favour of moving to Dortmund in January.
He scored 28 goals in just 22 games at RB Salzburg and has racked up 13 goals in 14 games for his new club.
Solskjaer is keen to reunite with the 19-year-old following their time spent together at Norwegian club Molde.
Solskjaer has confirmed the England star is fit to play when the Premier League returns in June.
The 22-year-old has not played since United’s 1-0 FA Cup win over Wolves on January 15 due to a back injury.
But he was spotted cruising into training in his new £150,000 Mercedes this week ahead of his return.
