Man Utd able to overcome two Jadon Sancho transfer obstacles in order to seal deal | Football | Sport

Manchester United won’t let a high fee or big wages get in the way of signing Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, Sky Sports reporter James Cooper has claimed. The 20-year-old has been backed to move to Old Trafford this summer, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eager to secure the forward’s signature. And it appears United are willing to do everything to bring the England international to Old Trafford this summer.

Manchester United have put Sancho at the top of their summer transfer wishlist having been impressed by the forward’s stirring performances for Borussia Dortmund this season.

The 20-year-old, who was eyed by the club last summer, has been in brilliant form in the Bundesliga – scoring 14 goals and registering 15 assists.

And Sky Sports reporter Cooper has claimed United won’t let a big fee or sizeable wages get in the way of any potential transfer deal.

“Manchester United like Jadon Sancho very much and he fits the bill too when it comes to being young, English, exciting and fundamentally someone who could strengthen and fill a position that needs to be properly filled,” said Cooper.

“If you think about the prospect of Rashford, Martial and Sancho as a front three with Bruno Fernandes providing the passes and vision behind them, it starts to look a bit more exciting and you can understand why someone like Sancho answers so many questions.

Should United sign Sancho this summer that could see James fall down Solskjaer’s pecking order at the club.

But Cooper can’t see him being loaned out, even if some fans believe he’s in need of experience elsewhere.

“I think with Daniel James, his development as a player will be the foremost consideration in what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decides to do with him next season but I really don’t think there’s a need to loan him out for him to progress,” he said.

“We all saw the signs of raw talent at the start of the season when arguably he was the only thing for Manchester United fans to get excited about on the back of 3 goals in his first 4 games for the club.

“He was never envisaged as being a first team regular in only his second season as a professional and I bet right now Daniel James is really getting the benefit of this extended mid-season break as he looked worn out before football was paused.

“As a player and a person the Welshman’s had a lot to contend with this season but imagine how much he could learn from someone like Jadon Sancho!”

Cooper also thinks United will sign more than just one player when the transfer window reopens.

“I’d certainly expect more than one new face to come through the doors at Old Trafford, though, of course, in a sense Bruno Fernandes was a summer signing brought forward to January and what an impact he’s made!” he said.

“Manchester United are vying to bring in 16-year-old Bellingham from Birmingham City but although he’d be part of the first-team squad if he joined, I get the sense that his capture would be something of a bonus and wouldn’t affect other targets.

“As I’ve already said, I think the centre-back position is one that will need strengthening along with the right-wing spot and any further arrivals will depend on the future of Paul Pogba who would need to be replaced if he were to leave Manchester United.”
