Here we go Manchester United fans. It’s not the news we wanted, but in many ways it’s the news we expected.
After months of speculation regarding Jadon Sancho’s potential transfer to United, we’ve reached the “United Board pursuing other targets” stage of this transfer. We knew this will go one of two ways.
This is not a new tactic from Woodward and the Glazers. Whether it was the transfer of Bruno, Maguire or AWB, there has always been this stage before the fee was eventually agreed upon where we pretend to look elsewhere.
31-year old Gareth Bale on massive wages and made of glass is exactly the type of transfer Woodward likes (di Maria, Sanchez, Falcao, etc.). Ole has moved United away from this approach and it’s beginning to pay off on the field.
Sancho is the hottest footballing commodity trading this summer and Ole has identified the youngster as his number one target. Any failure to lose out on the transfer is down to the Glazer family’s unwillingness to pay-up and invest in the club.
Glazers Out! Woodward Out!
