Dortmund will sell Sancho, Man United told to make Sane move, Jimenez boost in Manchester United news roundup..
Raul Jimenez continues to offer hope to suitors such as Manchester United, with the Wolves striker welcoming talk of possible transfers involving “many millions”.
The Wolves striker impressed prior to the coronavirus pandemic pausing the campaign, hitting 22 goals in 44 matches in all competitions and has caught the eye of a number of sides.
Both Liverpool and Manchester United are reportedly very interested in trying nail down his services in the summer, with United keen to make sure that they add to their attack when the window opens up.
Wolves do not want to sell their star man, and will do all they can to make sure that he does not leave in the summer, but the interest is there from the big clubs and Jimenez is enjoying being swept along for the ride at present, with no definitive call on his future offered once again when discussing the speculation he is generating with Telemundo.
“First of all I am very happy here with the Wolves,” Jimenez said. “I am in a place where from the first moment we made an incredible connection.
“I am no stranger to all that [the rumours], every day a new team comes out, every day a new offer comes out, I do not know how many millions.
“It is good to know that they are talking about you, but what I have to do to make that happen is to continue doing my job here with the Wolves.”
Manchester United have been told to make a move for Leroy Sane if they cannot sign up Jadon Sancho this summer.
It is no secret that United are big fans of Sancho and are reportedly desperate to try and bring him to Old Trafford in the summer window, although his massive price tag could scupper any potential deal.
But legend Dwight Yorke thinks United should hijack any potential Bayern Munich deal for Sane if Sancho cannot be lured to Old Trafford, given the fact that Solskjaer’s squad is currently lacking a natural left-footed wide man.
“United has got a real good attacking bunch of young players,” the former Red Devils striker told Stadium Astro.
“Add in Sancho, I like the boy Sane. If I was to airdrop, the boy Sane at City I really do [like].
“We haven’t got a left-footed sort of winger. The boy [Mason] Greenwood is coming to the fore recently but I like Sane.
“I really do think this kid is probably the quickest out of all them as well and he’s really got a good attitude.
“I know he’s got some injuries but if I was brave, if I was Man United manager at this point in time that’s the type of person I would go for.
“He’s had a couple of years in the Premier League, I’ve watched him very closely, he’s a player that I like a lot.
“The boy Sancho is obviously up there as well but if you can’t get him why not be brave and go for a player who’s played across next door and cause some stir, just stir it up a little bit. That’s what I would do.”
Borussia Dortmund’s chief executive Hans-Joachmin Watzke admits the club are willing to discuss selling Manchester United target Jadon Sancho, but doubts anyone could match their asking price.
There has been alot of speculation in the media suggesting that Unitedare willing to splash around £100 million in the summer to try and acquire the services of Sancho, who has become one of the most exciting wingers in the Bundesliga over the last few seasons.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bolsters his squad at the end of the season and improve the side enough to get back challenging for that Premier League title, and needs a bit more quality and creativity on the wings
It has been claimed over the past few days that United are ready to get the cheque-book in the summer window and bring Sancho to the premier League for a fee of around £70 million.
However, Dortmund reportedly rate him at £100m, with Manchester United among those thought to be interested, and although they have claimed that they are will to letting the young man leave, they also claim that it would be unlikely that clubs can meet his asking price.
Watzke said: ““If Jadon approaches us and says he wants to leave no matter what – which has not happened so far – and a club wants to spend what we are asking for, we will discuss it.
“But I don’t think a club will pay the fee we want.”
Look, until the transfer window is closed and the players announces that he does not want to leave, there will continue to be alot of transfer speculation about where he will end up in the coming months.
But all we know is, the lad is brilliant, he needs to come to the premier League and any of the top clubs will be very lucky to sign him, even for that £100 million fee.
