Manchester United remain favourites for major transfer despite recent developments

Manchester United remain the favourites to be Jadon Sancho’s next club as transfer gossip hots up ahead of what could be a busy summer.

The Red Devils could be ready to revive their interest for Sancho after almost bringing him in last year, with the player himself said to be keen on leaving Borussia Dortmund and disappointed not to have got the move to Old Trafford when he had the chance a year ago.

However, there’s also talk that United themselves are no longer making Sancho a priority due to the emergence of their own promising youngster Mason Greenwood this season.

It’s anyone’s guess how this might go, but almost all bookies still make United the clear favourites ahead of the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid for Sancho’s signature.

It could be that keeping a close eye on the latest Man Utd transfer news might give you some edge in working out where Sancho is really likely to end up next season if you fancied trying to make some money through Novibet online betting.

United certainly look like they could do with a signing like Sancho to come in as an upgrade on the likes of Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Daniel James, whose futures must all be in a certain degree of doubt.

Lingard has shone on loan at West Ham but had completely fallen out of favour with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before that move, so the most likely outcome there is probably that the club try to take advantage of his recent form to cash in on him this summer.

Martial and James, meanwhile, have not done enough this season and Sancho seems like the kind of improvement needed in that area of the pitch.

The recent news that Edinson Cavani has signed a new contract also surely means MUFC aren’t likely to be going all out for a big-name striker signing like Harry Kane or Erling Haaland any time soon.

In fact, Cavani’s fine recent form shows just how useful he could be if he had someone like Sancho out wide whipping the crosses in for him, as opposed to the likes of Martial and Marcus Rashford, who are wide-forwards rather than natural wingers.

The Sancho situation is certainly hard to understand right now, but perhaps United are attempting to publicly play down their interest to avoid paying over the odds for a player Dortmund wanted huge money for last summer.

It’s going to be an interesting few weeks and months ahead, that’s for sure…
