Borussia Dortmund’s Winger, Jadon Sancho, was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top priority in the summer transfer window, as per the reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær has laid a firm emphasis on the recruitment of “young, hungry British” players as he continues his rebuilding process at Manchester United.
Manchester United signed three players this summer; Daniel James, from Swansea City for £15m; Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace for £55m; and Harry Maguire from Leicester City for a world record £80m transfer deal, and the trio of them fit in perfectly into Ole’s profile.
A few of the Old Trafford faithful are, however, not pleased with the summer additions, with many suggesting that at least an attacking midfielder or a right-winger should have been added to the current squad.
The Red’s failure to capture one of Bruno Fernandes, Christian Eriksen and Paulo Dybala have displeased a large section of Manchester United’s supporters.
Indeed, a right-winger was Ole’s top priority, according to revelations made by The Daily Star, and it was none other than Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
The exciting 19-year-old was linked to Manchester United in the first few weeks of the transfer window, but after the purchase of Wales winger, Daniel James, speculation about the former Manchester City youngster died down.
Jadon Sancho preferred to stay at Dortmund for at least one more season, and United’s inability to offer Champions League football was also a big factor in Sancho’s preference not to move to The Theatre of Dreams at the moment.
The Red Devils are expected to return for the England international next summer, a time, they believe, they would be in a better position to lure Sancho away from Germany.
However, if the star continues his progress in a similar way, any deal that would take him away from Dortmund would supersede a hundred million dollars in today’s inflated market.
Do you think Sancho would be a wise decision to this current Manchester United side?
