After a summer in which the club’s only addition to their forward line was Daniel James, Manchester United’s decision to let go of both Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez seems all the more strange.
Reports have suggested the Red Devils are intent on rectifying that issue however, with Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho considered a leading target for next summer.
And reports this week have even confirmed that the club have indeed met with Dortmund over a potential move, but the asking price was colossal.
The former Manchester City winger has been in sparkling form for the Bundesliga side, and took that confidence into England’s clash against Kosovo on Tuesday night.
The 19-year-old bagged two goals for the Three Lions in their enthralling 5-3 victory at St Mary’s Stadium.
After seeing the England international’s display, United fans flooded to Twitter to voice their thoughts on their side’s reported transfer target.
Many supporters of the Manchester side appeared to be pessimistic over their chances of signing the teenager, and suggested there is “no chance he’s coming here”.
Some Red Devils fans insisted that without Champions League football to offer, Sancho would simply not want to come to Old Trafford.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
No chance he’s coming here.

Why would he come to us tho? Unfortunately the days where we could cherry pick who we wanted are over. We need more success on the pitch to be competitive that way again. Just being competitive at all would be nice, come to think of it……#MUFC

No chance unless we get top four.

Not a chance in hell he will join us especially with no champions league again next season as can’t see us getting top 4.

Don’t get your hopes up, it’ll end in tears.

He’s not signing for us are you mad

Unless we finish top 4, which I have serious doubts this season, I just do not see him coming here at all.
