Manchester United wasted a lot of time in the summer transfer window chasing the signature of Jadon Sancho.
In the end, they not only failed to lure the England international but were also unable to hire the services of an alternative.
The Red Devils did sign Van de Beek and Cavani for the attack but the duo have rarely started under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Norwegian manager really needs to improve the quality and depth of the offense by luring a world class winger and reports suggest that Sancho is going to be targeted again (EuroSport).
Dean Jones has claimed that a January move to Old Trafford is not possible but keeping in view that in the summer, the competition to hire his services is going to be very high, it would be a good option for United to get a deal done ahead of time.
The 20-time English champions did not meet his asking price of 120 million euros (£109million) and Jones has mentioned (EuroSport) that Dortmund’s valuation has not changed.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, Man Utd did not face competition to sign Sancho last summer but that will not be the case next year. Therefore, United should look to move in now to secure an early deal.
The 20-year-old directly contributed in 40 goals for the German club in the last campaign. As far as this season is concerned, so far, the Three Lions star scored 3 goals and provided 6 assists in 12 starts under Favre.
He is one of the best attacking players around who would strengthen the offense at Old Trafford. We were eliminated from the Champions League on Tuesday night and it must be remembered that Sancho is a CL level player.
Agreeing an early deal with Dortmund for Jadon Sancho must be done but securing contract with the player could be difficult if we do not qualify for the next season’s Champions League. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming months.
