If I had a £1 for every piece of speculation. I’ve come across linking Jadon Sancho with a move to Manchester United, I would be a rich man.
All summer long, I am probably not the only supporter who has been waiting for the official announcement that terms have been agreed with both Sancho and Borussia Dortmund allowing the 20-year-old to become a Manchester United player.
But now my gut instinct is telling me that it is not going to happen that there are obstacles preventing the deal being done.
I may be wrong, but I doubt it.
Consequently, speculation has appeared, in The Express, implying that the Manchester United hierarchy could be set to switch their attentions to another target with the inference being made that Gareth Bale could become the clubs next summer target.
Bale, 31-years-of-age, appears to have fallen from grace at Real Madrid and a deal, if the terms are right, could be struck.
Sadly, although I admire Bale, I can’t help thinking a golden opportunity will be lost if Manchester United opt for Bale and abandon hope of landing a player, in Sancho, who could be a mainstay of the starting eleven for the next decade.
Here at Vital Manchester United, we’d like to read your views on the subject matter in the comment column beneath this article.
