JADON SANCHO’S TRANSFER PLAN TO SIGN FRENKIE DE JONG EMERGES

The Red Devils hierarchy could be on the verge of sealing yet another transfer masterstroke just 12 months after their successful pursuit of England star Jadon Sancho. Manchester United are thought to be at long last nearing an agreement with Barcelona for the move of Netherlands international Frenkie de Jong. The Red Devils interest in De Jong has dominated much of the opening exchanges of the window this summer, with plenty of twist and turns as Barcelona play hard-ball in their stance. The Catalan giants are in a particularly perilous position financially, but for a long time refused to budge on their valuation of their midfielder.

However, after weeks of pressure and negotiation from United the La Liga titans may have finally reached an agreement over a fee that they deem enough to sanction De Jong’s departure to Old Trafford. The reported figure is £67m with add-ons, a number United fans will be incredibly happy with all things considered. The negotiations are strikingly similar to United’s pursuit of Jadon Sancho last summer while the England international was still a Borussia Dortmund player. Conversations between United and the Bundesliga outfit went on for so long they actually spanned across multiple windows.

OZIL SET FOR AN AWKWARD REUNION

The last couple of years has been crazy for Mesut Ozil. The German had to endure being frozen out at the club level by Arsenal for comments made against the Chinese government. He was also forced out of the German National team for political reasons and it looked like the end of the road for Ozil. He has found a new home in Fenerbache but looks like things are about to get rather uneasy for the ex-Real man.

24-year-old Maitland-Niles is a utility player who can play in a number of positionseffectively and efficiently. Central midfield is his preferred position but he can also play either as a left fullback or as a right fullback. The Englishman can also do a good job on either the left side of the attacking midfield position or the right side of the attacking midfield position.

SANCHO SUBBED ON FOR DRAMATIC DRAW

Summer signing Jadon Sancho was a second half substitute as his Manchester United side claimed a dramatic draw against Italian Serie A side Atalanta in the Champions League. Manchester United hit the equaliser in stoppage time to earn a point and move closer to a place in the knockout stage. Star man Cristiano Ronaldo was the recipient of the late goal that secured a point for Manchester United in their Group F clash with Atalanta. As a matter of fact, Ronaldo scored twice to take his goal tally to eight goals in eleven (11) games in all competitions.

Manchester United tried to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga for over a year and they were unsuccessful until this summer when a deal was reached for around £79m. Jadon Sancho has been largely anonymous since his transfer and he’s yet to score or assist a goal in 12 appearances though it must be pointed out that a lot of the games were played as a second half substitute.

The new Manchester United player provided two assists as England thumped Andorra 5-0 when the two nations met in their World Cup qualifying matchup.
