Man United are being strongly linked with winger Jadon Sancho this summer. So what can you bring to the Reds of Manchester?
The 20-year-old has exploded strongly at Borussia Dortmund in the past 2 seasons. He also regularly appears in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
Sancho has scored 17 goals and created 17 more after 28 Bundesliga matches this season, including 23 matches from the start. He also has 2 more goals and 2 assists after 8 matches in the Champions League with 1 goal and 1 assist in the German Super Cup. In total, the jewel of English football has scored 20 goals and has added 20 assists for teammates to score after 40 matches in all competitions for Dortmund.
Sancho has been used in a number of positions under coach Lucien Favre this season. He mainly plays on the right wing corridor but there are a few games that move to the left and kick in the central area. In the last two matches of Dortmund in the Bundesliga, Sancho was even pushed to the highest kick in the attack after Erling Haaland had an injury.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær is interested in a versatile attacking player this summer. 1 year ago, M.U signed with Daniel James from Swansea City. James can play well in both wing corridors but since moving to Man United, he mainly plays on the right wing. The wing on the opposite side is a rotation between Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
If Man United signed Jadon Sancho this summer, he will most likely replace Daniel James for the main stone position on the right-wing corridor. Sancho has a speed that is not inferior to James but capable of passing and finishing more impressively.
With Sancho’s presence alongside Martial and Rashford, United will have a attacking trio that is both speedy and able to finish independently. The price that Dortmund is setting for Sancho is £ 100 million. But for a 20-year-old closet that shows such a high level, it will not be a very worthwhile promising investment.
