Transfer Update – United Still Confident On 3 playersMatthew Rush
With confirmation that United agreed Odion Ighalo’s loan until January 2021, some people are asking whether Man Utd will actually sign another player this summer.
According to sources, Manchester United are still very confident of signing at least 2, maybe 3 players this summer. A right winger, central midfielder and a striker.

There is also suggestions that Dortmund have kept Sancho on the bench in recent games due to lack of fitness and being linked with other clubs. Confirmation of this came from Borussia Dortmund assistant coach Edin Terzic when he spoke to Turkish TV channel TRT Spor, suggesting Sancho has been distracted.

This deal likely will not be conducted quickly and could continue until deadline day. United may hope Sancho puts in a transfer request to help lure him away as the board and owners will not want to pay Dortmund’s minimum £90m valuation of the player. The cat and mouse game of signing players with huge reputations begins…
