Manchester United urged to sign defender over £100 million deal for Sancho

Dimitar Berbatov believes Manchester United should be prioritising a move for a centre back over a deal for Jadon Sancho.

To this day Sancho dominates the transfer headlines for Manchester United as he is the clubs number one target, but so far they have been unable to get any sort of transfer deal done for the attacker.

United are still trying to agree a deal for the Borussia Dortmund winger and are also keen on strengthening in defence, but former club striker Berbatov thinks a defender should be the main focus for the club ahead of their Premier League start to the new season.

“Centre back, for sure, needs to be the priority in my opinion. Who that is going to be and if they are going to buy a player I don’t think we will find out until the end of the window, but that should be the priority, along with right back,” Betfair ambassador Berbatov told Goal.

“I think Lindelof is good enough but sometimes he makes unnecessary mistakes where he is out of position, and that is not good for the team. That’s why they need someone, not only to push him but also for Maguire as well,” Berbatov explained.

“Even if you are captain and they spent a lot of money on you doesn’t mean you have to play every game and I think he can do even better.

“He has had his ups and downs, he has had some good games and bad games like every player has in their career but obviously and the most important thing is that Ole trusts him and gave him the armband and made him the captain.

“I like him because he’s calm on the ball. He brings the ball out from the back to the midfield, he doesn’t panic when someone is pressing him he is taking chances with some risky passes which you need sometimes.”
