Football Manager has predicted how the 2020/21 season will be if Manchester United sign transfer targets Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish. Both players have been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
United are hoping to add the Borussia Dortmund and Aston Villa stars to their ranks in a bid to build on this season’s third-place finish. Their fate for next season has been predicted by Manchester Evening News via the popular video game simulator.
First of all, the guys at MEN had to complete the signings of both players, which they were able to do for free using the editor tool. Sancho is valued at around £100million by Dortmund, while Villa have slapped an £80million price tag on their captain Grealish.
Both Sancho and Grealish have racked up some impressive stats between them in action this season. While Football Manager suggests Sancho won’t achieve quite the same numbers at United, he is still set for a fruitful season in front of goal. Their data has Sancho scoring 13 times throughout the season in 51 matches, and setting up 10 goals for his teammates.
Grealish is tipped to record similar stats, with 11 goals and 17 assists – an improvement on his 10 goals and six assists for Villa this term.
According to Football Manager, United will close the gap on rivals Liverpool and provide a stern challenge for the Premier League title. Sadly for the Red Devils, Jurgen Klopp’s side are backed to retain their champions status but United tipped to finish as runners-up on the simulator, ahead of neighbours Man City.
They also end the campaign with some silverware, lifting the Carabao Cup.
