Manchester United could have an exciting January transfer window ahead, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saying he’s ready to improve his squad before the summer.
The Mirror have reported United are keen on both Jadon Sancho and Red Bull Salzburg wonderkid Erling Haaland.
Is it time for Manchester United to let Nemanja Matic go?
Haaland has scored a whopping 15 goals in 12 Bundesliga appearances this season and seven in four Champions League games too. He’d undoubtedly bring goals to a team who have only scored 16 in total this Premier League campaign. Jadon Sancho was electric last season, scoring 12 goals and making 14 assists from 34 appearances. His faltering relationship with Borussia Dortmund this season, which saw him fined and dropped last month, may make it easier for United to pull him away for less than the £100m figure quoted in the summer.
They’re both 19-years-old and would provide bags of excitement for United fans who must surely be tired of arch rivals Manchester City and Liverpool fighting it out for all the major trophies. However, when Utd Report posted a summary of the story on Twitter, United fans weren’t as excited as many might think. They just don’t have the belief that Ed Woodward would want to or be able to pull the deals off.
#mufc are ready to move swiftly for Jadon Sancho and Erling Braut Håland when the January transfer window opens. They’re likely to cost close to £200m. The feeling at United is that there’s an opportunity to take advantage of Sancho’s discord with Dortmund #mulive [mirror]

I’m not believing or getting excited until they sign. Happened in the summer with dybala and fernandes.

“move swiftly” yeah right, can’t wait to see us doing nothing until 25th and then if we’re lucky we sign some squad player while claiming that there’s no value in January window

The stocks will keep going down. Everyone now knows the clowns at the board level have no intention of strengthening the squad in January.

Man United fans, who do you think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to sign in January?
