Ed Woodward and Joel Glazer’s row over Jadon Sancho

According to reports, Manchester United’s vice-executive chairman Ed Woodward and owner Joel Glazer were embroiled in a heated row, over whether or not to bid enough for Jadon Sancho during last summer’s transfer window.

It was widely reported last summer that Borussia Dortmund’s Sancho was United’s number-one transfer target.

However, despite their well known interest, an agreement between clubs was unable to be reached which resulted in the 20-year-old remaining in Germany.

Largely down to the fact the Black and Yellows had stuck an eye-watering £108m price-tag on his head, United failed to land Sancho, despite late speculation they’d go all out to secure his services, as per Sky Sports.

According to a recent report from The Athletic, there were pockets of the Red Devils’ hierarchy who were prepared to offer Dortmund a whopping £108m on deadline day.

It has been claimed that Woodward was willing to cave on his initial stance that the club would not pay that much during a pandemic, but Glazer insisted ‘it was too much money’.

The pair are believed to have been involved in a row which inevitably ended up with Glazer getting his own way.

Whether or not United will reignite their interest in Sancho this summer remains to be seen, but fans will live in hope.

    “But fans will live in hope”? I think not. An expensive player, struggling to regain form and not one United really need.

    • Leah Smith says:

      I think so – The majority of fan polls still come out with Sancho on top as their preferred signing… He just played an absolute blinder in the Bundesliga and United don’t need a right-sided winger?? – Really?

    Is good and fantastic player for creating and prodicing goal and powerful attac.

    Dzeko is needed at Manchester United coz upfront pair is infertile, the likes of Marcus ,martial ,Greenwood, cavani should be dropped. We need a typical strikers to put these upfront strikers on tension if not be sold, despite English.

    What’s wrong with the Glazers/Woodward in as far as signing players is concerned? It looks like there’s some form of racism in the management of the club. United is doing well presently and could contend for title but you’re looking for blame game if Ole does not deliver by denying him players of his choice. Then you start humiliating him with a sack. Give him a break and sign Sancho. Then watch if he won’t deliver a title.

    • Jeremia says:

      Ole won’t deliver a title because his poor tactically and he can’t blend in other player’s with the likes of Cavani,Fernandes nd Pogba. Ole sold too many valuable player’s who would have made Manchester United unstoppable with the current players who are inform.

      • Nick says:

        His poor tactically and man Utd are 2nd in the league! What does this man have to do to get the credit he deserves. Smh.


    If the current management of man Utd were the one incharge during sir Alex Ferguson’s era, sir wouldn’t have achieved all he did.
    These people are too stingy for my liking. Give Ole gunner what he wants, and if he doesn’t deliver you sack him..
