Manchester United have been told they’ve spent their money unwisely during this transfer window amid the imminent arrival of Jadon Sancho.
The Red Devils are set to announce the £73million deal for the England star, who will join from Borussia Dortmund.
Sancho will be an asset to the club but not one manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer necessarily needed, according to Scott Minto.
The 21-year-old is the latest member of Man United‘s impressive collection of wide players, which includes Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Daniel James.
Minto believes they’re more in need of a centre forward with Edinson Cavani the only one who consistently plays in that role for them.
And with Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham looking uncertain, Minto believes Man United should have used the cash they had for Sancho to make an approach for the England striker instead.
“I feel that they didn’t necessarily need Jadon Sancho, they’ve got enough wide, pacey players in their squad,” Minto told talkSPORT.
“I would’ve put that money, plus whatever [Spurs chairman] Daniel Levy wants to get the hottest property in English football right now and that is Harry Kane.”
Man United have shown their impressive financial muscle in a transfer market that will restrict many clubs as a result of the losses they suffered during the coronavirus crisis.
They’re reportedly closing in on Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, who’s valued at £50m.
But there’s no sign of a bid for Kane, with Manchester City thought to be his most likely destination if he leaves Spurs this summer.
