United have been in fine form of results and would be looking to claim the 3rd or 4th position in the league to qualify for the prestigious UEFA champions league next season and, according to reports, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made Jadon Sancho his primary target as he’s searching for a right winger to booster his attack next season.
Mason Greenwood who has filled the right wing position on several occasions this season as well can play as a left winger due to his ability to use both foots perfectly has been praised by legends and his manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his consistency in front of goals this season which he has been able to score 16 goals this season so far.
On the other side at Signal Iduna Park, Jadon Sancho is easily one of the best talents in the world, and his numbers speak volumes about him. In an era when inverted wing-ism is the vogue, he’s shown ability in going down the right flank and sending in perfect balls – traits of a classic right winger. Jadon Sancho plays as a right winger for BVB, and as well play on the left.
Will Jadon Sancho replace Mason Greenwood in the starting XI next season or will Marcus Rashford be the one to he replaced?
Marcus Rashford has done enough to make the left wing role his own and Sancho is not a No. 9 so he’s not a direct challenge to Anthony Martial. So will the arrival of Jadon Sancho hinder the progress of 18 year old Mason Greenwood next season?
While Jadon Sancho will be a good addition to any team in the world at the moment given his outstanding form, Manchester United as a big team, needs dept. He would not arrive to stay on the bench the bench. Mason is still 18 and can still he coming off from bench to make his mark in the team. United could play in the Champions League, the FA Cup, the Carabao Cup and the league next season and as a big team, you need dept to do that.
However, if Jadon Sancho is signed this summer, it would be interesting to see who starts in the first game of the season.
