Negotiating tactic I suspect.

Utd have been after Sancho for months. No way have they suddenly decided they can’t afford him.

Probably best to type a sentence that makes sense first. Struggled against Atletico and PSG as well and has against the better Bundesliga defences (aren't many either). Apologies for having an opinion based on watching him in most of his matches. Another season there be best for him and I think the Clubs interested in him want to see that as well.
No point knocking when nobody is home.

I watched most of Dortmunds games after the return and bar 1 game he was a passenger
Most of them looked to have downed tools since Bayern wrapped the title up tbf. The boys a fantastic talent and is probably exactly the type of player Utd need. On purely a football move Utd are probably not the right place to move for him, financially however it may be the best offer he gets.

Atletico are probably the best defence in world football though. 20 years old, now played loads of games at a high level and is only going to get better. He improves Utd instantly.

Agreed but he has to improve in these big games at some point - there has been a few now. It's one hell of a step up Bundesliga to Premier League right now, people don't like to hear it but the standard of the Bundesliga is poor now, look at the goal difference of the top 3 this season. Can only wait and see but if he was at Man U next season I wouldn't expect too much myself.

Chelsea have been no better than average under lampard am I reading that right ? in a top four spot without having been able to invest in the playing squad I’d say that’s better than average.
Their squad is worth hundreds of millions :D they had just signed Kepa & Jorginho the summer before for over £100m and spent a fortune in Pulisic in preparation for this season. They currently sit below Leicester who have a far lower wage budget.

They are lucky that Man Utd, Arsenal & Spurs have been rotten. Their current points total wouldn't normally have them in a top 4 spot at this stage of the season.

Before lockdown they had won less than half their games - granted now they have won a paltry 16 out of 31 and they have also suffered home losses to Southampton, Bournemouth & West Ham who have all been poor this season, especially the latter 2.

I don't know how anybody could argue that this season has been any better than average for them

Expect this to be a lot of bull to be honest. I certainly don't think they'll want to jump straight to Dortmunds asking price, but I'm sure they would go over £50M. Whether they can afford what Dortmund wants is another story.

They are looking a lot more balanced now, they've had a couple of good windows, and if they manage to add another couple of players including a right winger like Sancho, then their first XI starts to look pretty good.

Did they not pay near enough that for Wan Bissaka, Sancho in today’s market is an elite player and the bidding starts at £75m for them.

Man Utd supposedly after Guendouzi from Arsenal too.

The weakest link in a weak Arsenal team, and reportedly spent most of the Brighton game mocking opponents about their wages so a bit of a fanny too.

Hope they spend 50mil on him.

He'd be off his head to go to Man Utd in their current state.

If they get rid of OGS and bring in an actual manager then that's a different story.

He’s one of the top young players in football. If you like I can name a handful of games where Messi was poor by his own standards.. I suppose you think João Félix is rubbish because he didn’t do much for Atletico in his first season in Spain? Or don't all the goals Mbappe scores in France really count because it’s only the French league, a league far worse in overall quality than Germany?

If money wasn’t an issue Sancho would be wanted by almost all of the major clubs in Europe.

No I think none of those things that you say and I also don't think Sancho is poor either - which you seem to think I do! You also said earlier that Sancho was injured in the match at Munich last season, he wasn't. I like the copy/paste of Joao Felix!

"If money wasn’t an issue Sancho would be wanted by almost all of the major clubs in Europe" - well I never.

Out of interest in your opinion what were his best three performances last season for Dortmund?

They're going to have to move a few players on and spend very big for Sancho. Which shouldn't be a problem for them. However, I think it would be an absolutely shockingly bad move for Sancho to move to Man Utd. Sure, his bank balance would do OK but his career won't. Firstly, he's better of where he is vs. Man Utd. Secondly, I am sure other more suitable clubs would be interested as well.

Other than Bayern you'll probably not see another German Club reach the CL Quarter Finals for the next 5 seasons.

I don't know why folk would think it's a terrible move for Sancho. Utd are showing they are clicking finally. They now look to have some balance, and more important quality middle to front....a motivated Pogba, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial, Greenwood, Sancho would be a very good set of players. Plus he gets to move back to an area he was settled in, and be paid very handsome for doing so.

They're not "utterly garbage" at all.

You clearly watch no Bundesliga football.
Maybe garbage was a bit over the top but i watch enough to know that they've toiled this season at times & are as far away as ever from winning the league, even more so if their top players are sold off.
