Man United Could ‘Annoy’ Man City By Signing This Star Player

The Premier League is still a few days from returning thanks to the international break. Manchester must still be basking in the afterglow of its most recent derby, when City were able to defeat United 3-1 in a resounding home game.

Despite having much hope pinned onto them on the back of decent form, Jose Mourinho’s men simply weren’t able to do the needful against the table-toppers and defending champions.

However, what they failed to do on the pitch, they may be able to achieve off it, or at least that’s what one pundit opines.

According to Talksport host Adrian Durham, Manchester United must sign former Manchester City starlet Jadon Sancho to annoy their cross-city rivals.

The 18-year-old had left City and joined Borussia Dortmund earlier this season. Since then, he’s had a splendid spell in the Bundesliga, and was an instrumental presence during his first cap with the English international side against the United States.

Speaking after the game, which England won 3-0, Durham stated: “It is a gargantuan clanger from Pep Guardiola, let’s not dress it up as anything else.”

Durham adds: “Well we saw last night (against the United States) this is a brilliant player on the ball, he’s direct when he’s on the ball, he has a way of just challenging his opponent. He is another Raheem Sterling waiting to happen. It is pathetic really, it is a massive, massive, monumental error from Pep Guardiola.

“I mean, Man United knocked Liverpool off their perch famously, Man City have now taken over. United have to do all they can to annoy Man City, and if possible, overtake them again. But, how annoying would it be if they signed Sancho.”

It would certainly be an interesting feat, and given the potential brimming within him, a call-back to the Premier League doesn’t seem too far away.
