The Manchester Evening News reports that Borussia Dortmund wants to keep their star Jadon Sancho at the club. According to Dortmund’s chief operating officer Carsten Cramer they’re not interested in selling the 20-year-old during the summer despite strong interests from Manchester United and other top European clubs.
“We want to keep our players as long as possible. The less clubs interested in Jadon, the less we would complain,” he told BBC Sport.
Well, after all that speculation for months now that it almost seemed certain that Manchester United was in pole position to sign the right-winger, now United fans have hear this news about one of the players that the Red Devils covet the most.
However, I am not necessarily discouraged by this revelation. Any top star in world football that many teams are pursuing any club that has that player would do all they can to keep him. Ed Woodward said last month that despite the coronavirus that has caused destruction to economies globally, United were in a stronger position financially than many other clubs.
United is still in a strong financial position to buy the players that they want. Although with Covid-19 this prospect of obtaining all our targets may not materialize because of how the pandemic has adversely affected the finances of football clubs particularly in Europe.
As United fans let’s keep our fingers crossed that we can still sign Jadon Sancho, Moussa Dembele and Jack Grealish this summer. Football clubs are in a more challenging environment than ever before, so signing these players isn’t guaranteed. It will be interesting to see what players that Ole is pursuing that he will actually get this summer.
How do you feel about this story? Do you think that this decreases our chances of signing Sancho?
