Jadon Sancho transfer concern raised by Graeme Souness

Man United enjoy a sweet win against Leeds United with Mason Greenwood catching the attention of pundits, especially Graeme Souness who seem to now question the Red Devils for spending £73 million.

Greenwood put Man United back ahead after Luke Ayling had cancelled out Bruno Fernandes’ opener in the game that ended 5-1.

The England forward impressed at Old Trafford but cannot be assured of a regular place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team because of the arrival of Jadon Sancho.

Souness Graeme said Greenwood’s form since breaking into the United team in 2019 has provided evidence that he will be a ‘top player’ and has suggested that he could outshine Sancho.

“Four [title contenders]. I think you have to include Manchester United in that,” Souness said on Sky Sports when asked how many teams could win the top-flight.

“Looking at them yesterday, they looked threatening, positive, they have momentum and the crowd seems to be with them.

“They have signed good players. For me, the star of the show was Greenwood. For a young boy, I thought he was sensational.

“I was going to get round to the point that they have spent £70m on Sancho.

“Maybe that might be something they look back on and think: ‘did we need to spend that money?’.

“Because that boy [Greenwood], is a player, he’s a finisher. I think he’s going to be a top player.”

Meanwhile, Solskjaer has said he plans to fit all his star attackers in the team, claiming that they can each play in different positions.

“I think you can see, the forwards we’ve got into the team with Mason, Jadon [Sancho], Marcus [Rashford], Anthony [Martial] — they can play multiple positions,” he told reporters following his side’s win over Leeds.

“Edinson [Cavani] is probably the only one who is fixed in one position.

“So the rest of them I think we should just leave them to enjoy developing in their careers.

“I remember Wayne [Rooney], Carlos Tevez and Ronaldo playing together.

“Good players can always play together. And we need movement, and that is what we have today

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.

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.
