Manchester United fans were doubtful after reports emerged once again linking them with a move for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.
According to The Evening Standard, manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer is not looking at a quick fix of free agents and is willing to wait till next summer to secure an attacker, with the England international his leading target.
The Red Devils were linked with a move for the 19-year-old this summer. However, the youngster was said to be cautious of moving to the club due to the failure to qualify for the Champions League.
It was reported by BBC’s David Ornstein that prior to missing out on a top-four place, Sancho was ‘nailed on’ to join the club in the north-west.
Given the current situation surrounding the club, some fans took to Twitter and voiced their doubts over the arrival of Sancho.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:
I mean we don’t have much of a choice.
Unless we’re top of the league in January, why would he join?

What happened when we eventually end up 7th? Will Sancho come?
Stupidity at its peak.

Solskjaer will not be manager next summer. Jadon Sancho will not come to current system in the club.

I don’t get this though. If United finish outside the top 4 or just aren’t in the Champions league why would he want to come? I love Jadon, but look at the state we are in. Hopefully we improve

Somehow doubt we will have CL football to tempt him
