Ex-Reds captain Graeme Souness belief United should have opted not to sign Sancho

Former Liverpool skipper Graeme Souness believes the Red Devils have misplaced priorities, saying “I don’t think Man United needed Sancho.”

Souness is unsure whether the Old Trafford side really needed the English winger in their setup.

Jadon Sancho joined Man United this summer after a brilliant campaign in Germany for a fee in the region of £72.9 million.

The winger has been a long-term target for the Red Devils and after a lengthy negotiations with Dortmund, United finally got their man.

The English international presence has strengthened the club’s right wing options.

The signing of Sancho has been seen by many as a statement of intent, however, Souness has questioned whether or not the club was in desperate need of him.

Reflecting on the Red Devils chances of winning the Premier League. The Sky Sports pundit revealed in United’s 1-1 draw against the Saints, saying:

“I think they will go very close this year for the title. They have a really good squad this year, lots of firepower, certainly [Raphael] Varane will improve them.

“They have Sancho too, but like I said last week I don’t know whether they need him as they have Greenwood who can fill in wider areas, although I think he will ultimately be through the middle.”
