Man United have ambitions to sign Jadon Sancho so he is ready to play Crystal Palace in PL opener: report

Jadon Sancho this, Jadon Sancho that. Well, Manchester United’s intentions remain clear. They want to sign Sancho in time so that he can play against Crystal Palace in the Red Devils’ Premier League opener…

The 20-time Premier League champions’ interest in Sancho hasn’t wavered, despite it all going pretty quiet on that front recently.

It’s Dagbladet who provide this encouraging update, with Fredrik A Filtvedt sharing the story on social media.

Apparently, United want to sign the £190k-a-week (Goal) star in time so that he can play against Crystal Palace in just eight days’ time. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Edward Woodward better act quickly…

The last story we covered claimed that Solskjaer had been talking to Sancho, while the player still wants the move to happen. Again, you get the feeling it’s all coming down to whether United want to meet Borussia Dortmund’s asking price…

For us here at Old Trafford Faithful, nothing has changed. Sure, United want to sign Sancho so he can play against Crystal Palace, but Dortmund’s demands simply haven’t changed.

I get that United are playing hard-ball, particularly in these tough times, but Dortmund aren’t going to suddenly lower their price. Simply put, the Reds need to pay up or move on.

So will United sign Sancho?

Just like they did with Harry Maguire last term, I think United will cave in and pay Dortmund what they want. There has been far too much hype around this transfer for it to die at the final stages.

The last thing this club needs is another disappointing transfer window after a semi-successful season which can be built upon. Make no mistake about it, the pressure from the fans is real.

What’s attractive about Sancho is that he could easily give United a decade’s worth of service. Break that £108m fee down over ten years and it works out at £10.8m-per-year. What a bargain…
