Jack Pitt-Brooke of The Independent claims Manchester United’s hopes of signing Jadon Sancho this summer have collapsed.
All along we’ve been told the Borussia Dortmund sensation would be United’s number one target, even showing willingness to pay up to £100 million for the former Man City youngster’s signature.
But it appears United have shot themselves in the foot by ending up in sixth in the Premier League and playing shite football. Sancho sees that and you couldn’t blame him for turning his nose up to playing in the Europa League next season, when he could easily stay at Dortmund and compete in the Champions League.
It’s only right that Sancho looks at United currently and asks himself whether this is the right place for his development? He might look to Marcus Rashford and begin to wonder when he will eventually kick on and become a top striker? We’re waiting too…
The report states that Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are still interested in Sancho. If one of those clubs makes a bid for the winger, United may as well forget about it.
It’s sad but that is what we’ve become.
According to sources close to Stretty News, this was a potential signing pushed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, so this is an early setback for the Norwegian coach, who knows he will be under serious pressure from the start of next season because of how the Reds ended this term.
Pitt-Brooke adds that United have turned their attention to Swansea City’s Daniel James.
