Manchester United legend Dimitar Berbatov has predicted when Jadon Sancho will move to the Old Trafford. He doesn’t expect his former club to sign Borussia Dortmund star before the last few days of the summer transfer window.
Sancho has been United’s top target for months following some impressive performances at Bundesliga side, where he has recorded a total of 34 goals and 43 assists in 99 appearances across all competitions.
However, the Red Devils’ haggling with Dortmund has hit a snag as the Premier League giants are reluctant to meet the player’s astronomical asking price. That is why Berbatov expects the transfer saga to drag on for much longer and may not be finalised until October 5 when the summer transfer window slams shut.
Berbatov told the Manchester Evening News: “If they’re going to bring any new strikers – like they’re connected with Sancho for a long time now – if that’s going to happen probably we’re going to find out in the last days of the transfer window.
“Chelsea are doing some good business at the moment, they’ll be challenging the top teams. We will find out who is going and who is staying in the last two or three days of the transfer window.
“Sancho is a good alternative if it’s not too much money to spend on that signing, [then] go for it.”
