Manchester United are exploring the possibility of adding further personnel into their squad after one of their best seasons in recent years.
Manchester United have endured a fantastic season so far and are on course to end it on a high by lifting the Europa League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done a great job at utilizing his squad, which is within touching distance of a second-placed finish in the Premier League.
It is now understood that the Norwegian wants to offer serious competition for the league crown next season and will be supported by the board in bringing in his targets. With Ed Woodward set to leave, the new director will look to stamp his authority in a good way.
Bild has now claimed that the Red Devils are plotting a move for Jadon Sancho, who was also their target last summer. The Englishman supposedly has a gentleman’s agreement with Borussia Dortmund over leaving this season and United are looking to pounce.
Dortmund, who valued Sancho at 120 million euros a year ago, will now be open to selling him if a bid of 90 million euros is placed. Manchester United deem the price tag to be affordable and are looking to closing out the forward’s signing before the Euros.
Sancho is surely the right-winger Manchester United need, thanks to his goal-scoring prowess as well as creation of chances. The 21-year-old has had over 10 assists and goals for three straights seasons in the Bundesliga, matching only Lionel Messi in consistency.
However, it would not be a bad choice for United to give Mason Greenwood another opportunity and perhaps a longer run to prove himself on the right wing. As a homegrown player, he has delivered on a consistent basis, especially in the second half of this season.
In addition to that, United will be facing little competition for Sancho, which is why they can wait for another year if Greenwood does not perform. Chelsea and Liverpool were previously interested in him, but they are unlikely to pursue his signing this season.
Meanwhile, Barcelona and Real Madrid, who were also linked with him have entirely different targets and will now prioritize on Sancho’s signing. With his move to Manchester United seeming like a matter of when instead of if, do you think they should wait further?
