Manchester United’s transfer prospects are not in good shape at the time being. A lot of the club’s past allure has been lost and the manner in which they have been struggling in the Premier League so far this season doesn’t paint a very inspiring picture.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first full season with the side is already off to an unprecedented poor start. Now, they look like a long shot for even a top four finish with title hopes already appearing slim.
As was the case this season, the lack of Champions League football will hurt them big time in the transfer windows and one target, in particular, will be an elusive bet as a result.
The Goal believes that Manchester United are capable of acquiring Jadon Sancho in terms of economic ability, but a lack of Champions League football could see the deal fall apart for certain.
The 19-year-old wonderkid will cost the club upwards of £100 million. This is a fee that Ed Woodward is reportedly happy with investing as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified the British youngster as the apt talent for the rebuilding in mind.
However, the report adds that individuals have discouraged Sancho from making the move to United, particularly if Champions League football is lacking.
The rebuilding phase that Solskjaer has been entrusted with is being projected as a far from ideal destination for the teenager to succeed at furthering his brilliance.
The truth of this claim remains to be seen but even from a purely incentivized perspective, the choice is a hard one for Sancho. While United will provide him with top-level Premier League football and an attractive wage package, the struggles cannot be denied.
Then again, other English giants may also be interested in acquiring his signature and that is bound to be the deciding factor in the end.
