Solksjaer on Sancho: I hope we will soon announce it

Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Оле-has confirmed that Jadon Sancho is coming soon.

Jadon Sancho has been closely followed by Manchester United for the past two years. The winger of Borussia Dortmund attracted attention from all clubs in Europe, but the Red Devils remained the closest to him. Finally, the saga is coming to an end and soon the Englishman will prove to Manchester City that they were wrong, throwing him out at a young age. In the meantime, Solskjaer said that the deal is almost complete,

“As far as I understand, the paperwork is left to deal with and some little things. Hopefully we can make an announcement soon. Let us finish with the documents, bring the matter to an end - and then I will speak on the topic of what I think about this player”, the Norwegian said.

What will that give Manchester United? Of course, the same variability on the wings. Anthony Martial's Golden Boy game has not been pleasing for a long time. Of the quality wingers, Manchester United has only Rashford left. And this is too little, both for tactical flexibility of the coach and for the overall width of the bench. All this led to the fact that the danger of United attacks came either through the center, thanks to Bruno Fernandes, or the lateral defenders.

Last season, Luke Shaw showed himself especially well, giving both the amount of work in defense and moving the ball. Of course, this sometimes led to failures in the back. Therefore, for the sake of creativity, the Red Devils take Sancho so that Shaw and Wan-Bissaka can pay more attention to defense.

On the other hand, the club may very soon be joined by with Raphael Varane. This will also strengthen the team's defensive capabilities. Imagine this gang: Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw, Maguire and Varane. United follows the path of Manchester City, buying offensive first and then focusing on the defense. But it still speaks of great goals for the new season and the second place in the last Premier League draw may not be the highest achievement of United in the near future.
