Man Utd will seal the Jadon Sancho transfer before the deadline day.
Manchester United has seen a £91m for Jadon Sancho rejected by Borussia Dortmund but Jamie Redknapp is confident they will sign him before the transfer window closes.
“Dortmund wants to get as much as they can for someone like Jadon Sancho. I get that. But I think he’ll be a Manchester United player by the end of the window
defending champions Liverpool have a clear front three to their attack.
there are merits to havings players fight for positions too, says Redknapp
He also believes United should move swiftly to prevent other European heavyweights from making a move for Sancho in the future.
” I personally think if they didn’t sign Sancho in this window it wouldn’t be the end of the world but if you can get him, of course, you want quality around you,” he said
” The beauty of Liverpool is the simplicity of every week when everything’s right, you know what the front three is going to be: Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino. Mohammed Salah. It’s easy for the manager to a certain extent
Where else must Man Utd strengthen
Redknapp also believes Manchester United need to improve at the back. The club has invested heavily in the recent season to bring in Harry Maguire for £31m and Eric Baily for £30m and while Redknapp doesn’t believe big spending is the only solution.
” I understand there are problems at the back but they’ve thrown so much money at the problem,” said Redknapp.
Manchester United wants to pay £60m initial for Sancho with an additional £30- £40m in add ons
That would allow them to conduct more summer business given they will not have forked out a nine-figure sum on one player.
Jadon Sancho has been a revelation since leaving the blue of Manchester in 2017 and this term scored 20 times for the German outfit
