Solskjaer sent transfer message about possible Manchester United signing of Sancho after ‘take it or leave it offer’ made
Jamie Carragher says Manchester United must walk away from a deal to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho if they cant get a deal done.
It is no secret that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted to make Sancho the statement signing for the club this summer, and has been linked with a move for the past 12 months or so.
It is understood Ed Woodward has offered a ‘take-it-or-leave-it’ deal worth £90million up front, with a further £15m in add-ons to the Bundesliga side, but if the offer is rejected this time, Carragher has told the Red Devils that they should walk away from the deal if they can get it wrapped up.
Carragher said in his Telegraph column: “United’s hesitation in meeting Sancho’s valuation so far in this transfer window feels like it is an attempt to reverse the culture of overpaying.
“As fine a player as Sancho is, is he worth £108 million? And what impact would such a deal have on the game time of Mason Greenwood, who looks like the best young attacking talent in the country by some distance, scoring 17 goals last season?
“If United think Sancho is worth it, the deal should have been done already. What I cannot understand is if United do not think so, why haven’t they moved on? If the deal is not right, regardless of how much it upsets fans, walking away and buying an alternative target can be a sign of strength, not weakness.”
This has dragged on for months now and it is stopping United from completing other deals that they need, but United wont give up the chase.
