Liverpool icon has his say about Manchester United trying to sign £100 million man Sancho

Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler has had his say on Manchester United’s pursuit of Jadon Sancho this summer transfer window.

There has been alot said about the future of the gifted young man over the past few months, but it seems that Manchester United are favourites to try and secure a transfer deal in the summer window, if he leaves Dortmund.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants money to spend, needs money to spend, and needs players like Sancho to come in and give him that superstar factor that he has been missing on the wings since he took over as Old Trafford boss.

And now Liverpool legend Fowler has opened up and had his say about United looking to sign up Sancho, He told the Mirror: “And if United pay £100m for Sancho – even if it’s in instalments – then that’s what he’s worth, too. I don’t get it personally, but I’m no ­accountant. Who am I to say they can’t afford such a fee if they are going to lose £200m due to the pandemic?

“I reckon it’s a simple calculation. What will the player cost compared to what he can earn for you in terms of trophies and income? So many times United have got that ­calculation wrong in recent years, but at least Sancho fits their new philosophy.

“He’s still only 20 and is among the best in the whole of ­Europe. He’s done it at a high level, too. Consistently.

“If he reproduces the stats he has for Dortmund over five years elsewhere, then what’s it worth? I honestly don’t know.”

It will just be interesting to see how this plays out, there has been so much speculation about this possible deal.
