Why Jadon Sancho’s deal is a big risk for United, Pundit



Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker has has assumed that Man United’s effort and investment to bring Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund is a big risk.

He explained that the Man City academy graduate could struggle to adapt to life in the Premier League next season.

According to him, the Red Devils may have paid too much to secure the signature of the 21-year-old, who is currently representing England at Euro 2020.

The 20-time Premier League champions have announced that a deal has been agreed in principle to see Sancho make the switch to Old Trafford, subject to a medical, ahead of the new campaign.

However, despite the clamour around the man from Camberwell, Parker has expressed doubts over his ability to live up to expectations.

The 57-year-old exclusively told Express Sport that Sancho could face a tricky task in adapting to the no-nonsense nature of Premier League football.

“First and foremost, he has to hit the ground running for how long it’s taken to get over the line,” said Parker.

“I don’t know enough about him as a player, I haven’t watched him a lot. I’ve seen flashes as everyone’s seen, little montages of him made up of what he’s done in Germany.

“I would come out and say there’s a lot of people who watch German football, and I haven’t watched a lot of it, [but] I see high lines.

“I don’t see great defending at all in the goals those teams concede. It’s quite relatively high.

“I look at Bayern Munich this season and look at their national team, and there’s an issue going on with their league because their league is geared towards their national team.

“Every team works toward making their national team as strong as possible and it hasn’t really gone that way.

“So for him to come into the Premier League, there was no one else competing with Manchester United to get him, so I’m going to have to wait and see how the cookie crumbles.”

United will reportedly shell out a £77million fee in order to land Sancho, a figure that is likely to be topped up with a number of lucrative add-ons and bonuses.

“I haven’t seen enough in my opinion for him [Sancho] to warrant that kind of money,” added Parker.

“But Manchester United paying over the odds is something which everyone is quite used to at this moment in time.”


Legend ignores Man Utd, names six teams that can win champions league



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.
