Jadon Sancho was the name that did the rounds most during the transfer window, as far as Manchester United were concerned in the summer months.
Unfortunately, United were unable to find an agreement with Borussia Dortmund, but The Daily Mail recently suggested that the Premier League giants wouldn’t meet their £109m asking price.
Some will expect United to make another move next summer, although recent financial results may help explain why the board didn’t give into Dortmund’s demands.
On another note, it might not be a bad thing that United held a firm stance on the England star.
German publication Bild have tore into Sancho have claiming that his form his way off this season, even suggesting that his head doesn’t appear to be 100% in Dortmund because he’s discipline issues are apparently affecting the team.
It’s not suggesting that Sancho has gone completely AWOL but this is to be expected when you keep footballers against their will.
Hopefully next summer Dortmund get a taste of their own medicine and are forced to sell him for a lower fee — so long as he is headed towards Old Trafford.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might want to double check disciplinary issues. It’s not the first time manager Lucien Favre has had problems with his winger.
Sancho was hit with a €100,000 fine by Dortmund last year after turning up late for training after being on international duty with England (via AS).
Do you think United will go back in for Sancho next year?
