Manchester United: Red Devils legend believes Jadon Sancho would suit Red Devils

Manchester United: Red Devils legend believes Jadon Sancho would suit Red Devils - Manchester United

Manchester United have been chasing Jadon Sancho’s signature for a number of months, with seemingly no end in sight. 

However, the Red Devils have now been handed a confidence boost by one of their former players.

Louis Saha believes Sancho would be a perfect fit for his old club, after the Manchester Evening News revealed United want to sign the winger in the summer.

Last week, ESPN reported that the Reds are leading the race to sign the Borussia Dortmund star. Sports journalist James Benson added the youngster has told Dortmund he wants to leave and return to his homeland.

After establishing himself at the Signal Iduna Park, Sancho has become one of Europe’s hottest talents.

The former Man United striker told beIN Sports (as relayed by Goal) “he is a player that is uncatchable.

“He’s very clever, quick, very precise. He’s got the legs, the stamina, the quality. He’s very creative for that type of player.

“When you have all those things, like I said about speed and creativity, but precise as well, so imagine how deadly these things are.

“You can’t stop the guy and at the same time he’s very precise because he knows how to stop when passing the ball.”

It is hard to argue with Saha on this one, as Sancho is one of the most coveted wingers in the world.

Indeed, Premier League rivals Chelsea were interested in the England international, but Frank Lampard has decided to turn his attention to Bayer Leverkusen ace Kai Havertz.

The 20-year-old, who is the Bundesliga challengers’ top scorer this season, has scored 17 goals and 16 assists in the Bundesliga so far.

Saha’s vote of confidence will no doubt give his former teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer some encouragement, as Paul Merson has now urged the Blues to sign Sancho instead.

The Red Devils have been linked to the Englishman for a very long time, originating from Jose Mourinho’s turbulent time in charge at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer was planning ahead for a squad overhaul before the nationwide lockdown was imposed in response to the coronavirus crisis (ESPN).

It seems the Norwegian has stayed firm as he is keen to sign his top transfer target in the summer, and it appears he could be about to beat all competition for the winger in a matter of weeks.
