Jadon Sancho is no longer Man United’s favourite but this player is

Erling Haaland

Man United are believed to have changed their top target ahead of the coming summer transfer window with claims that they now prefer German Bundesliga outfit player Erling Haaland to England international winger Jadon Sancho.

Jadon Sancho was Man United’s top target in the last summer transfer window but a fee was not agreed upon despite the long-term negotiation s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted.

The Bundesliga club insisted on a fee of £107 which the Red Devils could not pay.

However, the former Manchester City academy player has struggled for last season, failing to score in Bundesliga appearances.

He is no longer attracted to clubs and Man United have made up their mind not to make a move for him anymore.

The 20-time English champions will now shift their attention to Erling Haaland who is being linked with several top clubs in Europe, including Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Man United have been following Erling Haaland before he left Red Bull Salzburg for Dortmund in January 2020 and will still make an attempt as soon as the summer transfer window is opened.

The Norway international scored 33 times in 32 appearances for BVB since his arrival making him the hottest striker in Europe as we speak.

This reduces his chances of leaving Signal Iduna Park this summer as he has a running deal until 2022 when a release clause in his contract comes into play.

Reacting to speculations, linking his son away from Dortmund, Alf-Inge Haaland said

“If you play well, it’s only logical that big clubs come knocking for you. But we’re talking about speculation here. Neither Erling nor me are thinking about interest from other clubs. We signed a long contract with Dortmund, who are a fantastic team for Erling at the moment. We don’t want to look further ahead yet,”

“They take good care of him and are satisfied with his performances. He is allowed to play almost every week and repays the faith by scoring a lot of goals. What could be better? He is doing well. He is happy to be in Dortmund and to be playing for this club.”

Asked if the young striker could be on the move next summer, Alf-Inge Haaland responded:

“You never know what will happen. We haven’t talked about making such a step so far. I think he would like to win some titles with Dortmund. That’s his goal. Erling can still achieve a great deal in Germany and make great progress. Leaving Germany is not a priority for us.”

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.
