Last summer, Manchester United were told by the club’s manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær to secure the signing of Borussia Dortmund’s English star Jadon Sancho. Solksjær demanded the completion of the transfer in a bid to continue his rebuild at the club as they continued to have a go at winning the Premier League title since they last inched it back in 2013.
