Jadon Sancho humbled in transfer claim

Published

Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend has told England intrenational Jadon Sancho that he won’t keep the pride of the biggest signing for Man United in this window for too long.

The Man City academy graduate has agreed to join Man United for an initial £73 million. The England international will sign a five-year contract following the Three Lions’ participation at Euro 2020

However, Red Devils are on the verge of announcing a deal for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane after reports that terms have been agreed upon.

His contract at Real Madrid expires in the summer of 2022 and Los Blancos are not willing to lose him for nothing with the centre-back stalling on a new deal.

While Sacho will be a good addition for United, Townsend says the arrival of Varane will be much more significant in terms of how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side do in the major competitions next season.

“I think the Raphael Varane one, yes, because if you look at Man United’s team they’re very top-heavy at the front,” Townsend said on talkSPORT.

“They’ve got a lot of forward options, Jadon Sancho will give them another option.

“But that Varane one, I think he’ll come in, if he does come in, and solidify the back four, he’ll give them extra strength, extra pace.

“I think somebody of his calibre is more suited to the Premier League. He’s big, he’s strong, he’s quick.

“So I definitely think the Varane one could take Man United closer to where they want to be.”

West Ham star Declan Rice is another player linked with United.

Townsend believes the Red Devils would suit Rice more than Chelsea, who are also keen.

“Chelsea’s different because I think at Chelsea they like their holding midfielders to be ball-playing,” Townsend said.

He added that “I think Kante’s kind of broken into that team under [Thomas] Tuchel towards the end of the season, so it’s Kante and a ball-player in a [Mateo] Kovacic or a Jorginho.

“So I don’t see where, unless one of those players leaves, I don’t see where he’d fit in there.

“Manchester United’s a different kettle of fish. We go back to [Paul] Pogba, looking at Pogba in the Euros with [N’Golo] Kante doing his running for him and Pogba having the licence to get on the ball and spray passes left, right and centre.

“He would need another player like that next to him, so that’s a different kettle of fish altogether.”

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.”

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.

Solskjaer

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.
