Man Utd hero Cole: Don't ditch Sancho plans

Manchester United hero Andy Cole says the club should still push to sign Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho.

Sancho has been linked with a move to Old Trafford but transfer talk has gone cold of late after reports United were only willing to pay up to £50million for his services.

Sancho is valued by his current club at closer to £100m, leaving any proposed deal at a standstill.

Cole told MUTV: "You're always looking to bring in players. There's talk of Jadon Sancho coming in. Would he give Manchester United something different? Of course he would.

"I'm not going to sit here and say, 'Oh no, he's not good enough!' because of course he's good enough.

"He's got pace, he's got the ability to go past players, score goals and create.

"I think ultimately all those kind of things are going to be down to financial issues coming out of Covid-19 – financially, it's hit every football club.

"But Manchester United will undoubtedly look to strengthen and look to add to what they have."
