Why Man Utd think Jadon Sancho can be signed on the cheap this transfer window

Published

on

Manchester United are hoping they’ll sign Sancho this summer, three years after first attempting to bring the forward to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils missed out in 2017, when Jose Mourinho was in charge, with Sancho instead choosing to move to Germany.

And United were also unsuccessful when they attempted to sign the Dortmund star 12 months ago having failed to secure Champions League qualification.

This time, United are hoping to succeed where they’ve failed in the past.

And ESPN say the Red Devils think they can sign Sancho on the cheap because of a lack of serious rivals for his signature.

Chelsea have been linked but Frank Lampard has changed his focus and now would prefer to land Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen instead.

“There’s talk of Jadon Sancho coming in. Would he give Manchester United something different? Of course he would.

“I’m not going to sit here and say, “Oh no, he’s not good enough!” because of course he’s good enough.

“He’s got pace, he’s got the ability to go past players, score goals and create.

“I think ultimately all those kind of things are going to be down to financial issues coming out of COVID-19 – financially, it’s hit every football club.

“But Manchester United will undoubtedly look to strengthen and look to add to what they have.”

“He’s loved there already and he’s got the fans on board.

“Could he find a way of going back there? That for me would be great for Tottenham.

“Even if it’s for two or three years, go back to where you made yourself, enjoy yourself and help Tottenham get back to being competitive.”

“But when you want to build something, when you want to have results, you buy a central defender nowadays.

“When you have Sergio Ramos, you win La Liga. When you have [Virgil] Van Dijk, you win the Premier League. When you have Marquinhos at Paris Saint-Germain, you win the Ligue 1.

“It seems to be that the tendency is to buy players, very expensive players, forwards, and forget the essential.

“The essential has always been like that.

“In Italy, you know if you defend well, you have a chance to win the Serie A. If you don’t have a good defence, you’re not going to get anything.”

Ahead of the match, Thomson said it was clear why the likes of Chelsea are tracking Havertz.

He said: “He’s a real top player, it’s there for everyone to see and I’ve got no doubt if he does go into a different team in Europe, whether he ends up in the English Premier League, I’m pretty sure he will take it by storm.

“He’s a real talent, I think unusual for a forward player, he’ll score goals with his head but he’ll also run in behind. He looks a real star.”

Former Rangers defender David Weir also praised the variety of Havertz.

“He does [score different types of goals], he can play in different positions around the front areas and that’s a real skill,” Weir said.
