Ole reveals three reasons Man Utd signed ‘untapped talent’ Sancho

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the three main reasons that Man Utd signed Jadon Sancho this summer, including his ability to excite fans.

as the England international joins from Borussia Dortmund for £73m.

Man Utd were put off last summer by his £100m price tag with Dortmund desperate to hold onto him for one more season – but now they’ve got their man.



When asked if he was excited to welcome Sancho, Solskjaer replied to the club’s official website: “Very much so. He’s such a talented boy. As it’s been known all over the world, we’ve followed Jadon for a long, long time. He’s a player that we’ve targeted and we think his qualities will fit right in here at Man United.”

On how he will improve the squad, Solskjaer said: “He’s such a creative, positive winger and forward player. He can play wide, nip into the pockets and he excites the fans. He takes people on one-against-one, he creates chances, he works hard and he loves football. And there is some untapped talent there I am sure, and coming into this environment will help him improve as well.”

On Sancho having the potential to get Man Utd fans off their seat, Solskjaer added: “Yes, we think so anyway – that’s why we’ve identified him. We’ve followed him and decided to go for him and finally we made the breakthrough and got the deal done. He’s got that DNA of exciting fans and entertaining and he’s also a winner.

“He wants to win and that’s the next step for us. We need to take the next step, we want to take the next step and we feel that he can help us do that. Of course we’re going to give him a chance to develop more and more throughout time.

“It’s not like in your first game you have to show everything; we’ve seen so many times with our players that when you play for Manchester United that gradually, with the help of the coaching staff and the platform of Old Trafford, you’ll improve as a player.”

Solskjaer added: “I think he made a good decision going to the Bundesliga, it was probably the right step for him, the right level and right club. I think Dortmund have shown so many times what they can do for young talent and in the Bundesliga what that can do.

“The Premier League is a different animal though. I don’t want to sound disrespectful to the Bundesliga, but I think the Premier League is a step up.

“We’ve seen that in the last few years in the Premier League, and the teams that have got to finals in Europe and won them, it’s shown it’s the place to be and that’s where Jadon wanted to be. He’s been in England of course, at Watford and over on the other side of the city as well, so he knows what’s expected from him.”

Paratic’s ‘whirlwind of operations’ slowing down one Spurs deal

Paratic’s ‘whirlwind of operations’ slowing down one Spurs deal

Spurs managing director Fabio Paratici has so many deals on his plate that one transfer is currently on the back-burner, according to a report.

Tottenham are set to complete the signing of Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini on loan until the end of the season in the next few days.

He will join on a season-long loan with an option to buy for £13m which will become an obligation if he plays a certain amount of games, insists Sky in Italy.



Paratici, the club’s managing director of football, has been in discussions with Atalanta this week, also enquiring about defender Cristian Romero.

Romero has spent the last two campaigns on loan with Atalanta from Juventus. He is still on Juve’s books, although Atalanta are expected to trigger his €16m (£13.8m) buyout clause soon.

He could then join Spurs for a larger fee, handing Atalanta a decent profit if they decided to sell him to the north London club.

Not only does Paratici have those deals to sort out, he also has to try and convince Harry Kane – alongside Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and new boss Nuno Espirito Santo – that he should stay in north London.

There have been rumours that Manchester City were willing to pay £160m for Kane, although , for now.

describe Tottenham and Paratici as being in a ‘veritable whirlwind of operations in the transfer market’.

Negotiations over a swap deal involving Erik Lamela and Sevilla winger Bryan Gil ‘continues its course but not with the expected speed’ due to the sheer volume of deals the club are working on.

, Lamela will head to the LaLiga side with Gil arriving in England – but Spurs will also have to pay €25m plus add ons to secure the signing.

Meanwhile, Son Heung-min has committed his future to Tottenham by signing a new four-year contract and earning a bumper pay rise in the process.

On signing the deal, Son said: “It was already a big honour to play here for six years, the club have showed me massive, massive respect and obviously I’m very happy to be here.

“It’s like home, especially with the fans, the players, the staff. There was no decision. It was easy. I’m so happy to be here and will be so glad to see the fans again soon.”
