United told £126 million for Sancho, Star opens up and sends message after agreeing Man United move, 100-goal hitman drops Premier League message
Guys here is a roundup of the latest Manchester United news, gossip and transfer talk from icfootballnews.com
Odion Ighalo has spoken to MUTV about his Deadline Day transfer to join Manchester United – and revealed he was happy to take a pay cut from his Shanghai Shenhua contract to join the club.
United were expected to do a whole load of transfer business over the January window in order to improve the side enough to get back challenging for titles, but despite all the rumours, United fans were frustrated at the club inability to get deals done.
Ighalo sealed a last-gasp Deadline Day loan move to UNITED from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua, as United needed to add another striker to the side for the second half of the season, and the former Watford striker touched down at Manchester Airport on Sunday morning to link up with his new club.
Now he has opened up about making the shock move to Old Trafford: “From 11pm there was paperwork, negotiating and all that, for the loan deal and all that, so we are talking and other teams are calling them, wanting me.
“But I told my agent that this is what I want. I want to come here. He said you’re going to get a pay cut to go to United. I said I don’t care. Make this deal happen. I want to go to United. I don’t care how much the pay cut is, I know that, make it happen.
“People that know me, even back in Nigeria, and even when I was playing at Watford, my team-mates knew that I loved Manchester United, I supported them. When I played against Man U, that emotion is there, because it is my dream.
“It is a nice reality, so I’m very happy and I’m looking forward to starting.”
Manchester United have been told a massive £126 million would secure a transfer deal for the brilliant Jadon Sancho in the summer.
United were expected to delve into their transfer kitty over the January window and bring in a few statement signings that would make an impact on the side, and give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer;s side that extra push they need to get back inside the top four by the end of the season.
However, United could not get a deal done for Sancho as Borussia Dortmund did not want to sell their best player half way through the season, and in the end, United failed to make the kind of signings that they needed.
But United are expected to resume their interest in the summer and will reportedly pay up to £100million for his signature, especially after seeing the young man become the youngest player in the Bundesliga to score 25-goals.
However, £100m might not be enough with former footballer Jan Aage Fjortoft claiming Dortmund want closer to £126m., with reports suggesting that Dortmund believe that asking price will rise over the next few months as interest continues to gather.
Sancho is a brilliantly gifted midfielder that does have all the potential to become one of the best midfielders in the game, and for that £100 million valuation on his head, it could be a great investment from the Blues.
As we said, Sancho is a brilliant winger that has all the ability to go on and become one of the best wingers in the game, and if there is chance for United to wrap up an early summer deal, they should, but only for the right price.
Manchester United target Timo Werner may have stayed at RB Leipzig in January, but he has dropped a big hint that he is keen on a Premier League move this summer.
United made the huge mistake during the summer transfer window and let Romelu Lukaku leave the club without going out and spending some serious money to try and bring in a replacement for the Belgian powerhouse.
However, despite all the speculation and rumours suggesting that United were keen to nail down a move for Werner during the January window, the Red Devils could now manage to secure any transfer deals.
But German striker Werner, who is rated as one of the hottest prospects in Europe, has dropped a massive hint that he is keen on a move to the Premier League at the end of the current season, he told Kicker: “I can generally imagine playing abroad one day, although I don’t have any specific club where I want to be.
“I am open for everything. I was over in America for a holiday recently and English football was on all of the time.
“That’s an exclamation mark for the Premier League.
“But there are also big, famous clubs and it would certainly be fun playing there.”
He would offer the club something different up top and also bring in that factor that United need and it will also mean that the Red Devils will have a striker that likes to score goals at the highest level on a weekly basis.
So Solskjaer may have missed out on his targets during the January window, but the summer should be a totally different story and a number of signings should arrive at the club.
Werner will cost well in excess of £50 million but his record is proven and he is a wonderful young striker.
