Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has suggested that Jadon Sancho might not fit in at Old Trafford.
The Bulgarian striker was talking about Sancho’s potential move to the Premier League this summer.
Dortmund have announced that Sancho will move away from the club in the summer. Despite being in excellent form for the yellows, it appears the Bundesliga giants are willing to cash in on their prize asset.
A number of clubs are expected to enter a bidding war for Sancho, with United, Chelsea, and Liverpool all keen.
However, Berbatov has suggested that Sancho might not be an automatic starter at United if he does move.
“I’d like to see him go to Old Trafford”, Berbatov said. (The Express)
“Of course, it will make them more powerful. It will give them more speed than what they already have, but the question is where will he play? They already have Martial, Greenwood, Rashford, and Daniel James”.
Sancho has been in blistering form for Dortmund this season. He’s already hit double figures in both goals and assists.
He’s widely expected to play a key role for England this summer, where a good performance could see his value rise even further in terms of a transfer fee.
Berbatov went on further in his comments to acknowledge that Liverpool and Chelsea are interested.
“I would like to see him go somewhere and get minutes, not just sit on the bench” Berbatov added.
“His signature is going to be sought after and there’s already talk of Chelsea and Liverpool. It is very flattering when so many teams are after your signature”.

While Berbatov knows what he is talking about, to suggest he wouldn’t get into the Man United team immediately is a strange take indeed.
Sancho is playing as well as any player in Europe. Why, then, would he not be good enough to get into the United line up?
Of the players he mentions, only Marcus Rashford delivers consistently (he is currently injured).
Jadon Sancho would walk into the Man United team and make them better immediately. Coincidentally, there’s more of an argument to say he wouldn’t get in the Liverpool XI ahead of Salah and Firmino.
