Former Premier League defender Glen Johnson has urged Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho against a move to United.
The former Chelsea and Liverpool player has told the player to join either Liverpool or Chelsea.
“Pretty much everyone that can afford his transfer fee are going to want him, so he can take his time to choose his next club,” ex-England international Johnson told talkSPORT.
“But I think it would be the wrong decision to sign for Man United.
“If he goes to a team like United at the moment, of course it’s a fantastic club and it would look great on his CV, but the team are not where they should be and I think as a young kid they would put too much pressure on him from day one.
“A young lad like that shouldn’t have to fly the flag for a club like United. I think he’d feel the pressure coming to the Premier League anywhere, so to carry that with him as well would be tough.
“Marcus Rashford is flying the flag for them now and his body is feeling the punishment. With young kids you’ve got to be careful because some of them are still growing.
“If he was to go to Chelsea or Liverpool or maybe a club in Spain, because he won’t be needed to come straight in and impress, they would bleed him into the team over time which would help his development. He might not be guaranteed to start every week, but he’d be doing it in the right way.
“Whereas if he went to United, yes he’d start every week but the team are struggling so it would be hard for him to find his feet.”
Currently Sancho has scored an impressive tally of 15 goals and provided 17 assists in 29 appearances across all competitions this season.
