Hamann: Sancho ‘the best winger in world football’

Former Liverpool midfielder Didi Hamann has hailed Jadon Sancho as “the best winger in world football” following the completion of his move to Manchester United.

The return to Manchester has been a long time coming, with United narrowly missing out on an acquisition last summer after failing to agree on a transfer fee with Borussia Dortmund.

This time around, though, the German outfit would sanction a , providing Sancho the chance to make his mark in the Premier League after tearing up the Bundesliga.

The 21-year-old racked up 37 goals and 47 assists across his last three campaigns, and is credited by Hamann as a player who raises the game of others as he “pulls defenders out of position”.

The German told the Racing Post: “It’s a big season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United too and I expect Jadon Sancho to be a star at Old Trafford.

“I’ve rarely seen a winger who can beat his man so easily, he drops the shoulder and just walks past defenders.

“Sancho could galvanise the likes of and Paul Pogba at United too. Having watched him in the Bundesliga, he makes other players better, creating chances and pulling defenders out of position, and we saw glimpses of that in England’s quarter-final win against Ukraine at Euro 2020.

“I was surprised that he was on the periphery of that tournament, he would be my first choice as a manager.

“In my view, not only is Sancho England’s best winger, he’s the best winger in world football and United fans should be very excited about his return to Manchester.”

Sancho will recognise a few familiar faces upon his arrival at Old Trafford, having befriended Luke Shaw, Rashford and Harry Maguire on international duty.

The quartet were part of the England squad that made it to the final of Euro 2020, though Sancho would miss a costly penalty in the shootout against Italy and, along with Bukayo Saka and Rashford, was later racially abused by supporters.

“I’m not going to pretend that I didn’t see the racial abuse that me and my brothers Marcus and Bukayo received after the game, but sadly it’s nothing new,” he said on Instagram. “As a society we need to do better, and hold these people accountable.

“Hate will never win. To all the young people who have received similar abuse, hold your heads up high and keep chasing the dream.”

Spurs tell Kane they ‘expect him’ to stay; ‘no way’ City will pay £160m

Spurs have informed Harry Kane that they ‘expect him’ to remain in north London this summer amid interest from Manchester City, according to reports.

that Tottenham were prepared to sell Kane to Man City for £160m this summer after Daniel Levy had performed a U-turn and decided the England captain could leave.

However, almost as quickly as the report had surfaced, it had been dismissed with .

The striker has reportedly made it clear that he wants to leave Tottenham this summer but it is thought Spurs chairman Levy has no intention of granting his wish.

that Kane ‘believes’ Tottenham are ‘are willing to sell him this summer in what he considers to be a shift in the club’s position’.

Reacting to the drama of the last few days, have now issued an update on where Spurs, Kane and City stand over the deal.

They reckon Tottenham are still adamant that Kane is ‘not for sale, with senior figures confident he will stay at the club’ while ‘Manchester City are not yet willing to throw in the towel’.

The story by Charlie Eccleshare and Sam Lee backs up Ornstein’s claim that Spurs and City were ‘taken by surprise’ over the report by The Sun and have ‘taken an extremely dim view of suggestions an agreement for Kane had been reached’.

The Sun‘s report has apparently reinforced Levy’s determination to keep Kane at the club, with three years left on the  27-year-old’s contract.

Tottenham have told Kane that they ‘expect him to remain a Spurs player’ while City have confirmed that ‘there is no way they would go as high as £160m’.

City, though, do not ‘consider their pursuit of Kane over’ but ‘they are not prepared to pay the sort of numbers being quoted on Thursday, or anything like it’.

There is ‘increasing scepticism’ that any club will now be able to afford Kane this summer with Levy determined to get at least £150m for the striker.
