Why Ed Woodward, Solskjaer clash will surface after Jadon Sancho deal


There have been relative peace and calmness at the Old Trafford for Man United but there are fears it could be threatened with the arrival of England international Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils have been stressed out in their pursuit of the England international winger from German Bundesliga outfit, Borussia Dortmund as they have failed to convince Jadon Sancho’s owners on the need to come down from the £100 million asking price.

It is already reported that Man United are frustrated in the deal but they have continued to remain on the negotiation table with believing that a deal would be sealed before the end of the summer transfer window.

The only reason for United’s patience on the deal is the fact that Ed Woodward is of the belief that with the coming of Jadon Sancho, the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team will become title challengers.

This means that if the Red Devils fail to challenge for the English Premier League title in the coming season, the relationship between Ed Woodward and United’s manager will go sour.

No doubt that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been the force behind the Red Devils interest in the former Man City youth player and he will definitely take the blame if the player fails to impress after the heavy investment on him.
