Graeme Souness believes signing Jadon Sancho should not be Manchester United’s priority, instead they need to strenghten other areas.
Borussia Dortmund star’s name has been long linked with the Red Devils. While the Bundesliga side instist that Sancho is not for sale, Untied remain interested in signing him.
Souness told The Times: “It looks like Manchester United will have to spend the best part of £100million to get Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund in this window and I’m not sure that’s their priority.
“There are other places they need to strengthen because Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford can score in any company.”
“Greenwood has everything going for him,” Souness added. “His age, athleticism, technique and that sixth sense that the very best have. He takes the ball early and strikes it beautifully.
“If you look at a lot of Lionel Messi’s goals, you see play developing and the goalkeeper getting set and then the next thing the ball’s in the back of his net and he has not moved because Messi takes it so early.
“I’m not saying Greenwood is in Messi’s class, it’s very early to call him, but he looks better than Martial and Rashford when it comes to that sixth sense and should get more goals than them over the course of his career.
“He will make goalkeepers work more by hitting the target with more of his shots. We must not fall into the trap of going too big, too early on a young boy who has burst on to the scene this year, but he has enormous potential and looks to be a really good lad as well.”
