Dortmund in search for Jadon Sancho replacement, with United transfer a possibility



German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund are reportedly in search of a replacement for England international winger Jadon Sancho with fears that he could be captured by Man United.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted on the signature of a top winger and had Jadon Sancho as his top target but a fee was not agreed upon with the Bundesliga side requesting the sum of £108 million which Man United could not pay.

The Man City academy graduate was also believed to be interested in a move to Old Trafford the last summer but left disappointed after Man United dumped negotiations.

It is now perceived that the Red Devils will return for the signature of the England international and are making efforts to land a replacement already before the coming summer transfer window.

Reports allege that Tanguy Coulibaly is on Dortmund’s list to ‘replace’ Sancho. The Stuttgart player has scored twice in 14 Bundesliga appearances so far this season. The French 19-year-old player has a contract with his club until 2023.

Earlier this month, Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke suggested the claimed asking price wasn’t really a thing: “The alleged transfer fee often mentioned in the media never existed in reality. And if you get a signal at some point that a large part of the amount offered will only be paid in a few years, it will finally be a purely theoretical discussion.”

However, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be backed with funds in the coming summer transfer window especially if he makes a successful shot at the Premier League title this season, as well as secure qualification to the Champions League next season.

The Red Devils started the season on a slow note but the story has changed as they now drag the summit with the defending champions, Liverpool. Man United went ahead with 36 points after a win against Burnley on Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear that there will be no more new signing in this January winter transfer window after the signature of young sensation, Amad Diallo last week after agreements were reached and concluded before the end of the last summer transfer window.

Danny Murphy

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Why Man Utd may not win trophy



Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

What Solskjaer said about Man Utd 2-1 defeat to Young Boys




Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
