Jesper Olsen as one of the former Manchester United players advised the Premier League giants not to give up in the hunt for England winger Jadon Sancho in the transfer market this summer.
As is known, Manchester United has indeed been widely associated with the 20-year-old player since the middle of the 2019/20 season yesterday. It is even mentioned that Jadon Sancho is their main game in the transfer market this summer.
It’s just that Dortmund as the owner of the player is said to be reluctant to give up their valuable assets easily. Die Borussen is only willing to take it off with a tag of 120 million euros.
The official price should still make sense to the Red Devils, but in the midst of the Corona Virus pandemic like now, they certainly think again.
Well, this is where Jesper Olsen hopes that Manchester United will continue to try to make the transfer happen. According to him, Jadon Sancho is an extraordinary winger, especially when he is still very young 20 years.
“It’s always difficult because you see someone and like what you see and you want them to play for your team. You have to spend money and after that, you want them to appear.”
“If you can get someone of that class and they want to come to United, of course you have to go after him until the end.” Olsen told Stats Perform News.
Furthermore, according to Olsen, Manchester United need to recruit players like Jadon Sancho if they really want to compete on the European stage next season.
“You have an extraordinary team at the top of Europe, so you have to have a bigger squad. Any player of Sancho’s caliber can add something to the squad, of course you are looking for a player like that.”
Manchester United itself finished 3rd in the Premier League final standings last season. Regarding this achievement, Jesper Olsen praised the tactician, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“Overall, it’s fantastic for Manchester United, but also Ole Gunnar Solskjaer,” continued Olsen.
So far, the Red Devils have only recruited one player in the summer transfer market, he is Donny Van De Beek.
