Premier League told ‘ it’s terrible news’ for You after Manchester United announce imminent signing of skillful star Sancho
Rio Ferdinand has warned Manchester United’s Premier League rivals that Jadon Sancho’s imminent arrival at Old Trafford is “terrible news” for them
Sancho was the number one transfer target for United last summer, but they could not get a transfer deal done as Dortmund had no intention of letting the gifted winger leave the club, but United reignited their interest in Sancho this season and after months of rumours, he will be joining the Red Devils in a deal that will cost the club a massive £73 million.
Asked what Sancho will offer to United, former Red Devils defender Ferdinand has told his FIVE YouTube channel: “On the right-hand side and the left-hand side, we haven’t got a winger who goes on the outside and can cross the ball. That’s what you need.
“He can play on the right or the left, he plays with both feet. On that right-wing, as well as Mason [Greenwood] has done and I’m a massive fan of his, this is Manchester United, who are always associated with wingers.
“At any of our most successful times, there’s been wide players who can cross the ball. For a full-back, it’s terrible news!”
“I don’t need to tell him this because he loves his football, but work hard and make sure everything you do is about being a success at Manchester United and being the best you can be.
“Don’t let nothing sidetrack you. Be yourself, entertain and the end product is what you’re about. Bring that to the table.
“The energy and the focus should be solely on football. Just immerse yourself in everything about the club.”
Ferdinand added: “Sancho’s arrived, Sancho’s here! I feel beautiful.
“This boy, just look at his stats, they don’t lie. In terms of goal involvements he was the second most over three seasons – that’s a fact.
“He’s got to convert that to the Premier League which is difficult, we’ve seen that, but listen, I believe in Jadon Sancho.
“Since he was a kid, he’s had hot press, hot expectations, he had the bravery to leave Man City and go abroad. Personality, character.”
