Manchester United are after Sancho

Another transfer window is not complete without the transfer saga of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United.

The Guardian wrote that Manchester United have already agreed with Sancho on a five-year contract and a salary of £ 350,000 a week. The amount of compensation for a football player remains a challenge. The Red Devils are offering 77 million euros while Borussia want to receive at least 90 million.

At the same time, Goal reports that the Black-and-Yellows have completely rejected the initial proposal of the Mancunians. The player himself tries to focus on the European Championship and does not pay attention, according to him, to speculation,

“Dealing with this pressure is easy – it is enough to enter the pitch. Do what you did before and everything will be fine. If you maintain consistency in your approach to work, then such conversations will not be a problem.

Football is in the first place for me now. Before such a big tournament like Euro, I focus exclusively on myself and the team. I give my best, because now is a very important moment for the country. Of course, sometimes partners support me with questions about my future. We have to calm them down,” the Englishman summed up.

Sancho’s purchase is a major investment for Manchester United and will not tolerate mistakes. The 21-year-old winger is not really traumatic. In the last four seasons at Borussia after his transfer, they conceded only 25 games in total. Jadon's statistics at Borussia is quite impressive: he scored 38 goals and gave 51 assists in 104 Bundesliga matches. But still it is worth cutting him some slack for the fact that the Black-and-Yellows have a large advantage in the direction of attacking football.

It seems to me that United run the risk of falling for the same bait as with the purchase of Depay or Martial. Both players were insanely talented at their mid-range clubs, but failed to handle the pressure on a more serious level. Sancho started out at Manchester City but found himself unnecessary and continued to hone his skills in Germany. It is not a fact that the Citizens threw out a promising winger simply because of the lack of a place in the squad. Perhaps there are pitfalls that we do not know about.
