Manchester United legend Gary Neville has urged the club to stump out the cash for transfer target Jadon Sancho. The England international has been linked with a move away from Germany with United thought to be his preferred location.
However, Sky Sports reported earlier in the week that the Red Devils are unwilling to pay above £50milion for the 20-year-old. This is half of the current valuation of the player. In an interview with Sky Sports Neville believes that the club needs to spend more on quality.
“I think you might have to pay a little bit more than that, Ole. That’s the problem because some clubs think that other clubs will get desperate and sell players on the cheap. But I’m not sure you can bully clubs like Borussia Dortmund,” He said
Sancho is a quality player and has proven himself in the past two seasons at Dortmund and is evidently ready for the Premier League.
United would need to make the signing to suggest that they can compete with the very top teams in the League. The last time the club signed a player coveted by the top teams was in 2016 when they signed Pogba for a record deal. Sancho may have achieved less than what Pogba did then but is certainly in the conversation.
