Ex-Man Utd assistant McClaren: Sancho a luxury Solskjaer doesn't need

Former Manchester United assistant coach Steve McClaren does not think the club should sign Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils are linked with a move for the Borussia Dortmund winger this summer.

With days to go in the transfer window, it is unclear if a move is possible.

And McClaren thinks the squad may need strengthening elsewhere.

"Sancho is a luxury they don't necessarily need," the former United assistant and England manager told talkSPORT.

"You're only talking £10m or £20m more in £100m to go out and get him. Go and get the boy – you're Manchester United. Show your clout.

"But I do think you might as well spend that money on decent defenders."
