Former Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand has urged the club not to give up on Jadon Sancho transfer, despite Borussia Dortmund insisting he is staying with the team.
The Red Devils failed to meet with the German club’s deadline of August 10, with the two sides having no agreement on the transfer of the winger. Moreover, after a trip to England, Sancho returned to Germany to continue training with the Dortmund squad, while the club sporting director, Michael Zorc, revealed the player is going nowhere: “We plan on having Jadon Sancho in our team this season. The decision is final. I think that answers all of the questions.”
Despite United considering Sancho alternatives for the summer transfer window, Ferdinand believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side should keep going for the England international.
He told BBC Radio 5 Live: “He is fantastic. If he does come he’ll be an added value in terms of quality, no doubt.
Manchester United need top players who are going to have an effect on their first XI and I think Jadon Sancho falls into that category.
If you look at successful Man Utd sides over the years, successful periods, there were players fighting for every position and if you substitute one out and you brought one in there was no change in the quality or the output.”
