Manchester United: Key Robert Sanchez update emerges

Manchester United: Key Robert Sanchez update emerges -Follow up

Brighton would only sell rumoured Manchester United transfer target Robert Sanchez for a sizeable amount of money, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Sanchez linked with United move

The 25-year-old is currently at the 2022 World Cup with Spain, being rewarded for his consistently strong performances for the Seagulls in the Premier League.

Sanchez has started all 14 league games so far this season, being described as a ‘monster’ of player by former Brighton manager Graham Potter.

The Spaniard has been linked with a move to United in recent weeks, as they potentially eye up a long-term replacement for David De Gea.

The Latest: Key update emerges

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Jones admitted that the Red Devils will likely only be able to get Sanchez if they are willing to spend big:

“It’s an interesting one. I mean, you’ve got to consider that Sanchez is going to cost a lot of money if there’s going to be a transfer involving him. Brighton aren’t going to let him go on the cheap.”

The Verdict: Ideal De Gea replacement?

De Gea remains a top-quality goalkeeper with a number of years ahead of him at the top, but there are question marks over him being the perfect option for Erik ten Hag.

Premier League - Manchester United v Everton

Manchester United fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

He isn’t the most comfortable with the ball at his feet – something the manager wants in all of his players at United – and he ranked the lowest in that area in the Premier League earlier this year. Sanchez could, therefore, be an upgrade in that respect.

At 25, the Brighton man is still young, too, particularly in goalkeeping terms, so he could come in and provide competition for De Gea, eventually replacing him as first-choice between the sticks.
