Manchester United have been urged by Rio Ferdinand to continue their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho
Sancho has been on the lips of many Manchester United fans for months now as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly made him the clubs number one transfer target this summer.
Dortmund’s sporting director, Michael Zorc, however, has stated that the club’s prized asset will not be leaving before the end of the 2020-21 season, with the German outfit having set a deadline of August 10 for any interested parties to get a deal over the line.
But Ferdinand has backed the 20-year-old to sparkle for the Old Trafford side should they eventually come to an agreement with Dortmund, and he has urged the club to keep on pursuing the talented young man
“He is fantastic,” the former centre-back told BBC Radio 5 Live. “If he does come he’ll be an added value in terms of quality, no doubt.
“Manchester United need top players who are going to have an effect on their first XI and I think Jadon Sancho falls into that category.
“If you look at successful Man Utd sides over the years, successful periods, there were players fighting for every position and if you substitute one out and you brought one in there was no change in the quality or the output.”
Manchester United are ready to relaunch their interest in centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, and hope £60 million will get a deal done.
United have been in the headlines alot over the past few months as they seek to build a side that is capable of challenging for all the major trophies next season, and adding a new defender is on the agenda for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Despite all the attacking flair that United have, they have one of the worst defences in the premier League and will need to address that with a world class signing in the coming weeks, with Koulibaly on the list.
Regarded as one of the finest defenders in the game right now, Koulibaly has been heavily linked with some of the biggest clubs for months, with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool all linked with a possible deal.
Now it seems that the Italians are ready to cash in on the powerhouse as According to Gazzetta dello Sport, via SpotWitness, Napoli need to raise over £100m this summer to offset the losses they’ll face after failing to qualify for the Champions League.
The Senegal international has been touted as one of the names who could leave with United reportedly willing to pay as much as £60m to sign him, they are hoping that that fee will be enough to conclude a deal.
Manchester United target Thiago has told Bayern Munich he wants to leave the club for a new challenge, and they are open to selling the midfielder.
Thiago has been in the headlines alot over the past few weeks after new broke in the media that he is not looking to sign a new contract with the German Champions, and instead, is eyeing up a fresh challenge in the Premier League.
And that has led to reports in the media which have suggested that it is United are keen to try and secure a transfer deal doe his services over the next few weeks, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to take the club forwards.
Now Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has opened up and revealed that the Spanish midfielder has now told him that he is seeking to leave the club over the next few weeks and seek a fresh challenge in the game.
He told BILD: “Regarding Thiago, it’s known that he told us he wanted to do something new.
“If a club approaches us that is willing to pay a fair transfer fee, we will work on it.”
Look, United already have some wonderful talent in the squad and will look to improve that over the course of the next few months, but for the money that he is going for, Thiago would be a dream signing for most clubs.
Thiago is a world class player and one that will certainly add to this side if he does get that move to Manchester United, so they would be massive fools not to make a move for the midfielder.
