Manchester united have been in excellent form in recent weeks since the restart of the season and have been sent a message regarding target Jadon Sancho.
Football pundit Robbie Savage says that Manchester United could easily have England’s front three playing for them next season.
The Reds’ homegrown talents have stood up to the occasion in recent matches, with both Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford in superb form since the restart.
Mason Greenwood is yet to be capped at senior level for England but Robbie Savage thinks his performances this season means it will not be long until he is in Gareth Southgate’s plans.
In an Mirror article, Robbie Savage also said that United should follow-up on their interest in Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho or Spurs striker Harry Kane to create a formidable forward line.
“If United try to sign Jadon Sancho or Harry Kane in the transfer window, we could be watching England’s front three at Old Trafford next season: Sancho or Kane, Greenwood and Marcus Rashford” he said
“Mason Greenwood has not just appeared from nowhere on the United conveyor belt. Inside the club, he has been earmarked as a bright prospect for some time.
“But 16 goals to date in his debut season at first team level speaks for itself. Greenwood is the real deal.
“He is being managed perfectly by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is giving him due praise in public but reminding him to live his life the right way off the pitch.”
Whilst some are waiting to see how long United can prolong their form for before making predictions over next season, Savage believes the team can mount a title challenge if they strengthen properly in the summer transfer window.
He continued: ” Manchester United have been so impressive since football’s return from lockdown that I believe, with only two or three additions down the spine of the team, they are genuine top-two contenders next season.
“In fact, I will make this prediction: Whoever finishes above United in 2021 will win the title – especially if they strengthen the squad.
“I would go for Kalidou Koulibaly, the Napoli captain, because he would bring pace to the heart of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s back four.
“I would go for a playmaker to provide competition for Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba, who was absolutely majestic at Aston Villa on Thursday night – maybe Jack Grealish or James Maddison.
“And I would go for Sancho or Kane, which would send a signal to the rest of the Premier League: United are back in business. Obviously we can’t be sure, at this stage, how heavily the coronavirus pandemic has impacted on clubs’ spending power.
“But I get the impression Solskjaer is close to assembling an irresistible attacking force who can play with the swagger, intensity and tempo United fans have come to expect down the years.
“A front five of Fernandes, Pogba, Rashford, Greenwood and Kane or Sancho would take some stopping.”
