Here at Old Trafford Faithful, we’ve been pretty busy keeping up with all the Jadon Sancho transfer talk. The latest story came just yesterday from Bild, and it was bad news for Manchester United fans…
According to the German outlet, Sancho isn’t 100% convinced about making a switch to the Red half of Manchester, which makes sense given the fact that Champions League football is still by no means a guarantee for the 2020/21 term.
Fear not, United fans. Lord Fabrizio Romano has spoken, as he took to Twitter, replying to a fan to provide the latest, exciting update.
Apparently, the 20-goal, 17 assist starlet is still keen and interested in joining United, though talks with his current club, that haven’t started yet, could be key.
When asked ‘Is’ Man United interested in Sancho still?’, Romano had this response:
Now no date is given as to when these talks could take place. However, the German season is over now. You’d imagine Sancho is set to sit down with Dortmund officials in the coming weeks to discuss his long-term future.
The problem is that Dortmund apparently want his future sorted before August 10th. At which point, United will be knee-deep in their Europa League campaign.
Big-money deals like this are complicated at the best of times, but factor in COVID-19 and it becomes even tougher for the buying club. Dortmund, understandably, aren’t going to want to sell Sancho on the cheap. However, United, and every other side, don’t have the financial resources that they normally have.
How this is going to play out is anyone’s guess. I’d like to think some sort of common ground can be reached though I’m not holding my breath.
In terms of what Sancho would bring to United, you don’t need me to tell you how good he is. The Englishman is already amongst the best players in the Bundesliga. His pace, trickery and directness would greatly improve Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad. There’s no doubt about that.
In our opinion, it seems that Man United is still interested in Sancho. Seemingly, that feeling is mutual. Hopefully, a deal can be done.
