“He would have knitted their midfield together” – Carlton Palmer says Man Utd should have signed Premier League star instead of Jadon Sancho.
The Premier League giants,Manchester united have spent £73 million to get Jadon Sancho from top German club Borussia Dortmund ahead of the 2021-22 season.
The 21-year-old winger played for four seasons at Dortmund, where he played 104 games and scored 38 goals.
Jadon Sancho has had an underwhelming time at Old Trafford since his arrival in the summer. Under former Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Jadon Sancho mostly started on the bench and has failed to show what he is capable of doing on the football pitch.
Jadon Sancho however has been a regular starter under interim new manager Ralf Rangnick. He scored his first Premier League goal in the much-important clash against then League leaders Chelsea.
However, Declan Rice has been heavily linked with a possible move to Old Trafford as the Red Devils look to sort out their midfield woes. Rice fits the defensive midfielder role currently vacant in the Manchester United squad.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Carlton Palmer said:
“If I were Manchester United, I’m not saying I wouldn’t have taken Sancho but Rice is the one that I would have got. He would have knitted their midfield together and that’s the type of player that Manchester United needs.”
Declan Rice is among the top targets of most of the big clubs in Europe. It would not be easy for Manchester United to bring him to Old Trafford by the end of the current season.
Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea are also said to be interested in signing the England international.
