Former Liverpool star announces £80m winger Sancho ‘will join Manchester United’ in summer
Former Liverpool star Steven Nicol has claimed Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho will join Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
Regarded as one of the finest talents in world football right now, the Englishman has been linked with some of the biggest clubs in world football after impressing on numerous occasions for Dortmund, becoming a creative force in the Bundesliga.
However, there has been some speculation that it is Chelsea and United that lead the chase for the talented youngster, but with the Blues facing a big transfer ban that will mean they cannot buy any players for the next few transfer windows, means that United have a clear run at completing an £80 million deal.
And Nicol believes Dortmund will not stand in Sancho’s way, telling the Daily Express website: “Well everybody would want him.
“Manchester United have shown that they have the money. Dortmund have shown that if the price is right then they will let anyone go.
“So I say yes, Sancho will go to Manchester United.”
Here is what we think on the gifted Sancho.
United are one of the biggest clubs in world football so having both eyeing up possible transfer deals will be a massive boost to the lads confidence. But it is best he stays put as he is developing very nicely at Dortmund and a move to the Premier League right now may ruin his top-class development.
He has the potential to be one of the best wingers in the game and is still young enough for United to keep an eye and then make a move when he is more established in the game.
If he wants to move to United in the summer he will get that move, but as we said he is only 20-years of age and has plenty of time to get that big move to Old Trafford.
