Has Man United spent too much on Jadon Sancho?

Published

on

Man United have finally announced a deal in principle for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho and it is understood that he will be completing a £73 million move to Old Trafford after the European Championship and a medical test.

The Man City academy graduate has earned a reputation in the Bundesliga as an explosive attacker offering goals and assists.

At 21, he could offer 10 or more years of service, potentially getting better all the time, the reason why he was invested upon.

A former United defender, Paul Parker therefore believes that huge the investment on Sancho is a waste and would be better spent elsewhere.

He said United should have prioritised his England teammate Declan Rice because he’s the type of midfielder their side is lacking and should have been their No 1 transfer focus.

“There’s a way of just being that defensive player, but then as well there’s another way of being a midfield player who can break into the attacking third,” Parker told the Daily Express.

“United haven’t got that player, so if they’re going to go into the marketplace you have to look at Declan Rice.

“It’s all about someone young. If you were to go and spend the Sancho money on him, you would have got someone who is proven in the Premier League. Everyone talks about him and knows about him.”

He added that “Declan Rice, take the dust off of it, is a box-to-box player,” he added. “You can use that because that’s exactly what it is.

“He’s not just content sitting in there to think he’s doing his job, sideways, square passes and back. He can drop into the back four to give it back to a centre-half then run off and just get your stats up.

“He actually wants to make things happen on the edge of the box. And the bonus is that he’s willing to run back and recover as well if things were to break down.

“He’s not already being there waiting and being an extra person at the back. He’s willing to do both.

“So if you’re going to keep it within the shores, you are not going to get anyone better than him in this moment in time.”

However, the Red Devils boast of forwards, including Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, Daniel James and Amad Diallo. They also have Edinson Cavani who can operate as a centre forward.

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.

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.
