A number of Manchester United supporters have been in full agreement with former Red Devils defender Patrice Evra after he labelled the Red Devils’ unsuccessful pursuit of Jadon Sancho in this transfer window as ’embarrassing’.
United have been attempting to secure a deal with Borussia Dortmund to bring Sancho to Old Trafford throughout the transfer window, but they have seen their attempts to match Dortmund’s valuation repeatedly thwarted after missing the German club’s August 10 deadline to complete a deal, as per Sky Sports.
Dortmund have placed a valuation of £108m on the England international and they have rejected the Red Devils’ latest offer of £91.3m which was placed last week, according to Sky Sports. The German club’s sporting director has since stated that the door is closed over any potential deal for Sancho.
Speaking to Sky Sports Football, via Football Daily, Evra expressed his frustrations over United’s failed attempts to bring Sancho to the club during the transfer window, with the Frenchman disappointed they have not been able to do a deal with Dortmund.
He said: “I would like to talk more about football, but unfortunately when I meet people we always talk about transfers. I think the Sancho saga is embarrassing.”
Some Manchester United fans highlighted how the club’s former players can spot problems with their recruitment policy that the board are not seeing, while others even suggested that the Red Devils should bring the Frenchman back to the club in some capacity to help sort out their issues in the transfer market.
