Former Manchester United assistant coach Rene Meulensteen, has called on the club to tilt its head toward signing a world class striker, instead of spending so much on Jadon Sancho.
Speaking recently on talkSPORT, the Dutchman suggested we already have enough talent in the wide areas, and Sancho isn’t as important as is made to seem.
He said: “What I think Man United are missing is a striker of the calibre of Robert Lewandowski.
“Somebody up there who can hold the line, link play, but when it comes to finishing chances in and outside the box, they are hard to come by.
“Fifty million for Sancho, is that too much? For me, looking at what United have in those wide areas, is that where you want to strengthen?”
For what it’s worth, Dortmund and Man United seem far from agreeing a deal for Sancho, as both clubs have varying valuations of the player. While United want to pay around £50 million for the 20 year old, Dortmund are adamant he’s worth at least £100 million.
