Borussia slow Sancho down

Borussia Dortmund remain the last redoubt, preventing Jadon Sancho’s transfer to Manchester United.

As it became known from the words of Fabrizio Romano, Jadon Sancho’s transfer to Manchester United may not happen because of the Dortmund club’s categorical position. According to the information, the Englishman already made a deal with the Mancunians about the conditions of the move and a personal contract several months ago. It also became known that the leader of the Black-and-Yellows did not have any difficulties in negotiations with the Red Devils.

At the same time, Manchester United intend to bring down the player's price when Borussia agrees to let the winger go for only 120 million euros. This is the categorical position of the German management, from which they do not intend to step back no matter what.

Sancho, according to previous information, is not going to complicate the life of the Black-and-Yellows and does not intend to force events and destabilize the situation in the team. Jadon agrees to spend another season in Bundesliga if the clubs don't shake hands during the current transfer window.

Apart from Sancho, Manchester United also monitor other footballers playing in defensive positions. But the club is focused more on strengthening the attack and saturating it with a variety of performers. This situation is not very clear to me, although in comparison with the top clubs the Mancunians have not conceded too much. They are third by least goals conceded in the league, with only 36 goals in the net.

Problems in the defense of Solskjaer's team are present anyway, and statistics are not always able to reflect the current state of affairs. The club has prioritized attacking to compete on equal terms with Liverpool and Manchester City. But in my opinion, this cannot fully compensate for the shortcomings in the center and on the left wing of the defense. A good half of the Premier League clubs are capable of breaking into the defensive redoubts of rivals and sitting out on the defensive, arranging Stalingrad.
