Solskjaer tells fans “From what I understand only paperwork, small little details, hopefully we can announce something” ahead of Manchester United signing
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given the fans an update on the imminent Manchester United signing of Jadon Sancho.
The Red Devils have had a £77.5million transfer bid accepted from Borussia Dortmund as the 21-year-old looks a near-certainty to seal his move to the Premier League giants this summer.
He is tipped to become one of the very best wingers in world football and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was desperate to add him to the attack, and add another threat up top as he looks to win that Premier League title next season
But with a deal still not et announced, Solskjaer gave an update on his imminent arrival from Borussia Dortmund: “From what I understand only paperwork, small little details, hopefully we can announce something,” Solskjaer said on TalkSport
“Let’s get all the paperwork done and get him over the line and then I can say what I truly feel about the player.”
Louis Lancaster, who worked with the England star at Watford during his eight-year spell there as a youth player, believes Sancho will undoubtedly add a great deal to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Man Utd side.
He told the Stretford Paddock YouTube channel: “Firstly, he’s going to bring goals and assists. He’s not a one-season wonder anymore, he’s proved that, he’s been consistent.
“His numbers are off the charts — I think he’s getting one goal or assist per game.
“He’s making the most successful dribbles in Europe, the most entries into the box, so that’s where he is going to excel.
“But I think Jadon’s greatest quality is that he can add to other people’s games.
“So though you have spent money and signed one player, I think you’re going to get a better Bruno [Fernandes], a better [Paul] Pogba, Cavani.
“I think that’s his greatest skill set, adding value to other people’s games.”
We are all interested to see just how Sancho does in the Premier League next season as it is not the Bundesliga, he will come up against quality players on a weekly basis. And will need to deal with the pressures that the media also bring
