Ince shocker, Man United told to sign £100 million star, United fans see why Solskjaer is keen on creative force (Video)
Here is a roundup of the latest Manchester United news from icfootballnews.
Arsenal legend Paul Merson has urged Manchester United to focus on trying to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
The 19-year-old England international, who left Manchester City to join the Bundesliga outfit in 2017, emerged as a top summer target for United, but Dortmund refused to sell and United were not prepared to pay such a big amount for the youngster.
The lad is a creative force and was one of the top assist players in Europe last season, and considering United are in need of adding some much needed excitement, goals and creativity on the wings, the lad is growing into their perfect signing.
in August Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke revealed he turned down an approach for the England international from a “super club” earlier this year, and Director Michael Zorc came out and admitted that United had a meeting about a possible deal.
Despite their failed approach, United remain keen on Sancho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear that the youngster remains the club’s number one attacking target, and Merson agrees that United should prioritise signing Sancho before scouring the market for the world’s top talent.
‘They’ve fallen, they’ve come a long way but when they are falling the other teams like Manchester City and Liverpool are so much better than before, it’s frightening,’ he told Sky Sports’ The Debate. ‘I think Manchester United have got to get a big meeting together. Get all the scouts from around the world, because they must have loads.
‘They’ve got to say for the next four or five windows, we’ve got to get the best players. Go and get Sancho, then go and get someone else.’
This is why Chelsea and Manchester United are so interested in signing up Jadon Sancho.

Former Manchester United captain Paul Ince has said he would prefer to watch Chelsea in action instead of his former club.
Both United and Chelsea have had very inconsistent starts to the new Premier League season and look a long way off challenging the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool for that Premier League title.
They boast some of the best youngsters currently in the game, and there is a feeling that both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard will be given enough time to help develop the youngsters into some of the best players in the games, while also challenging for major trophies.
But Ince has outlined how the Blues have a clearer vision than his former club, who have managed only one win in their last five Premier League games under manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.
‘I think of Ole in the same way as I do Frank Lampard,’ said the former midfielder on the Daily Mail website.
‘Two young managers, lacking experience, thrown into two massive clubs.
‘But if you gave me the choice of who I’d rather be watching this season, it’d be Chelsea all day long – and that hurts me as a former United captain.
‘At least when I look at Chelsea, I see what they’re trying to do, the way they play, their identity – they’re pressing high, getting tight and creating chances. They can only get better.
‘Can anybody tell me what United are trying to do? Because I have no idea. They’re so reliant on the young lad Daniel James – who is brilliant, but was in the Championship with Swansea last season – it’s crazy.’
