The Red Devils are yet to announce the signing of Jadon Sancho from the summer transfer window
After finishing the season in a better position, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United are planning a jump in the domestic flight next season. The Red Devils finished the Premier League fight in the second position last season and now, they can’t repeat the same.
The transfer plans of Manchester United are heating up in Old Trafford, as the targets are still in negotiations and intense debates. The immediate signing of a centre-back was the major agenda for United in the beginning of the summer transfer window.
Also, the continuous rumors on Real Madrid defender, Raphael Varane, predicted the same in the summer. But, the World Cup winner of France is not an easy task for the mighty devils of Manchester. Meanwhile, the systemic delay in the announcement of the Sancho deal is lagging their transfer activities.
Although, the official announcement of the English winger will speed up the process of the remaining transfer targets of United. Also, the financial outfit of the club should be addressed after the presentation of Jadon Sancho. The £73 million transfer is already agreed with the Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

The case of Varane and Saul for Manchester United
Raphael Varane was a long-term interest of the club since the reign of Sir Alex Ferguson. In 2011, Ferguson and United were on the mission of signing the young French defender as a long-term investment in the back-line.
The club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward worked on the same mission seven years later and was willing to spend £100m. But, the anticipation from another Frenchmen, Zinedine Zidane, landed the player in the Spanish Capital.
The contract of Varane with Los Blancos expires next summer, and this is the right time for Florentino Perez to do the business. Also, the deconstruction of the defensive department in Madrid aligns with the plan.
Atletico Madrid midfielder, Saul Niguez, is a guaranteed midfield option for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He got everything in the demand of Old Trafford. The addition of the Spaniard to the midfield can solve a major chunk of problems in the centre-circle.
Despite the bumper contract of the player, Atletico Madrid seems to allow the player to leave this summer to bag a big deal to add finance to the club. Saul also got a past with the football scouts of Old Trafford.
The summer of 2013 will narrate the story. It was the time when David Moyes settling himself as the successor of Sir Alex Ferguson. The transfer wishlist of the year included the name of Saul, but the mission was a failure.
Now, both targets are on the same frame for United and this is the right time for a sweet revenge. Transfer window started counting and United got the deadline of August 31 for any kinds of ‘revenge’ and anticipations.
