Manchester United: Steven Bergwijn would be an exciting Sanchez replacement

What a big summer Manchester United have ahead! They need to drastically improve their squad to play catch up with eternal rivals Manchester City and Liverpool, and Steven Bergwijn is the ideal Alexis Sanchez replacement, not Hirving Lozano.

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now the permanent manager, he can turn his head to how he’s going to build a title challenge next season. Alexis Sanchez hasn’t been good enough in a United shirt and it’s probably time they cut their losses and let him go.

Steven Bergwijn is a PSV wonderkid who’s played 28 times this season, scoring and assisting a whopping 12 each. His performances have raised eyebrows and Corriere Dello Sport (via Sport Witness) believe he’s caught United’s eye too

Hirving Lozano also plays for PSV and speculation connecting him to United has risen after TEAMtalk claimed he’s asked fellow countryman Javier Hernandez about the club.

However, United should ignore him and go for Bergwijn.

Despite Lozano scoring 17 and assisting nine in 27 appearances, he’d be a much dearer option and it’s more important for United to spend their money in defence and on one more major creative signing. Bergwijn would bring the quality and the bargain price tag.

Many players have crumbled under the weight of a big price tag at United, so it’d be better to sign the fearless youngster for cheaper than to buy Lozano for much more. The signing is much more long-term with the younger lad too, and it’ll earn him more patience with the Old Trafford faithful.

United don’t need to spend so much on Lozano when they have Bergwijn at the same club, who is just a cheaper, younger version of the Mexican and has more potential. Neither are statement signings so there’s no need to spend so much on either of them.
