Why United may not sign another attacking player after Sancho

Published

on

Man United have confirmed that an agreement has been reached with Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho and he will be joining the club ahead of next season.

The Red Devils have no doubt boosted their team and will not need any attacking player. This is as reports claim that Edinson Cavani is central to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans.

With the coming of Jadon Sancho and the presence of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, Edinson Cavani will only play in 60 per cent of matches next term, according to reports

The Uruguay international joined the club from PSG back in October. And he enjoyed a good season for the Red Devils, netting 17 times across all competitions.

This is not a threat to the legendary attacker. Speaking in May, the Uruguayan elaborated on his decision to turn down the advances of Boca Juniors to remain at the club.

When asked what convinced him to stay, he said: “You know, to answer that question sincerely, about what the reasons were behind it and what is my motivation to stay, quite simply I would say it is exactly what this club represents, what Manchester United represents as an entity, as an organisation.

“That is down to the club itself, but also the people who work behind the scenes and within the club, obviously the supporters as well.

“As the days, weeks and months pass by, you do get to develop a huge affection for the club and I think, on a human level, it creates a bond with yourself, your team-mates and everybody who is part of the club, and you start to feel that.

“You notice that it is a real motivation and it gives you a desire to want to stay.

“I am very excited and keen to stay for another season, to give it my best, to help the club on the field as I can and hopefully bring some happiness and joy to the supporters.”

Cavani also admitted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a big factor, too.

“Talking about the relationship with the manager, I think that any influence he has had hasn’t just been now at the moment of signing a new contract, but from the very first moment, even before I had signed, with conversations that I had with the manager,” he said.

“The way that he put his trust in me, the way that he made his feelings known about me and the confidence that he had with me, that was great from the word go.
“But over time and as the months have passed, the situation has just confirmed what I originally thought about Ole and that confidence that he gave me.

“Obviously, as time has gone on and games have passed by, he has made some really positive comments privately and in the media about me, as have my team-mates and the technical staff, the backroom staff, here, so that really, really helps as well.

“I think when you are a player, it gives you a huge amount of confidence when you know you have the backing of not only your manager but also other people around you.

“When you do get glowing comments about you, that is a real positive and is something that you are really grateful for.”

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.
