Sancho would be amazing signing, United told to sign Kane, Solskjaer says his goodbyes to Sanchez in Manchester United roundup..

Manchester United should prioritise other areas before signing Jadon Sancho, former coach Rene Meulensteen has warned.

The transfer window is now firmly into swing and there has already been some big reports in the media suggesting that Manchester United are closing in on a transfer deal to seal Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.’

However, he is going to cost the club some serious money and there are some doubts that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will then have the funds to go out and land a big-time striker, something that the club should be prioritising this summer.

And amid the reports that United are closing in on a deal for Ssncho, A natural goalscorer such as Harry Kane is a better bet, the Dutchman believes, with the defence also a key area.

Rene Meulensteen told talkSPORT: “They first need to get clarity about the goalkeeping position because now there’s a debate about De Gea and the rumours with Schmeichel, but also Henderson is there.

So that needs to be solved to make sure that’s clear. People are on De Gea’s back, but he’s still a very good goalkeeper; he’s had a few blips this season, he needs to sort that out.

They also need someone next to Harry Maguire to strengthen that [defence].

The 56-year-old added: “They’re bringing Jadon Sancho in, but more than anything, I would have gone for a more prolific out-and-out striker, somebody like Harry Kane.

“There is so much creativity coming from midfield with Fernandes, [Paul] Pogba, [Marcus] Rashford, [Anthony] Martial… they can all contribute to goalscoring.

“But [they need] somebody in the middle who’s going to score 25-plus goals. That will close the gap for United.”

Inter Milan chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez has signed a three-year contract with the Serie A club.

Sanchez, 31, joined Inter on loan from Man United in August last year and the Serie A club have been keen to turn the move into a permanent deal after the Chilean star put in some impressive performances.

Former Arsenal striker Sanchez has scored four goals in 29 appearances in all competitions for Inter this season and was among their substitutes in their home Europa League tie against Getafe last night

Reports have claimed He will receive a payout from United for cancelling his contract, which still has two years to run. The details of the payout are unknown but the value of the remaining two years in wages is around £55 million

Marotta said: “Unofficially, we’ll make it official (on Thursday) morning, the player is entirely owned by Inter.

“We have a contract with him for three seasons. We believe in him, that he can be a strong part of this squad and are happy to have concluded this deal.”

“I can confirm that he’s agreed and we’ve agreed. Alexis enjoyed his time there. They’ve liked him so of course that’s a good move for him. Wish him all the best,” Solskjaer said.

“He’s a top player, that we want to see play his best football.

“For whatever reason we didn’t see the best of Alexis. But he’s a top professional and we just wish him all the best.”

Dimitar Berbatov has revealed that Jadon Sancho would be an amazing signing for Manchester United.

The transfer window is now firmly into swing and there has already been some big reports in the media suggesting that Manchester United are closing in on a transfer deal to seal Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.’

Sancho ended last season with 17 goals and 17 assists to his name, and is currently valued at around the £109 million mark, but it is believed that United may be able to get him signed up for a fee closer to the £70-80 million mark.

And amid all the speculation, Berbatov has opened up and claimed that the Englishman would be an amazing signing for the club, or any team, Old Trafford legend Dimitar Berbatov told Betfair: “Jadon Sancho would be an amazing signing for any team, United included.

“It becomes a luxury problem to have so many attacking options, but it brings hard decisions.

“Someone has to be benched, and Ole will have to deliver that news to someone.

“Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are well established in world football, and Greenwood now deserves his chance to continue his progression, and I don’t want to see him stalled.

“We know United can afford to pay for Sancho, and if it happens, the club will be happy, but it will also be tricky.

“Over £100m is a lot of money, especially now in the current situation, but I’m sure he will be worth it.”

Sancho will be an amazing signing, but it will be interesting to see just how he fits into the system at the club?
