The former United striker has given his verdict on Sancho’s future who remains a target for Solskjaer.

Jadon Sancho has announced that he is going to be leaving Dortmund, which came as a surprise to me. I think he is really developing well in Germany and he is still very young. The progress he has made over there has been unbelievable and hopefully he has his reasons for deciding to leave. His agent, family and people around him can give him advice but where he goes now is anyone’s guess,” he told Betfair.

For me, he needs to play, he needs to continue his development and that’s why I’m surprised he wants to go because Dortmund gave him that opportunity as a player. He is still far away from a complete player, he is so young, so wherever he goes I hope he gets minutes so that he can play and continue his development and show how good he is.

Is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer going to sign him for Manchester United? Why not? Coming from my time there, I would like to see him go to Old Trafford. Of course, it will make them more powerful, it will give them more speed than what they already have, but the question is where will he play? United have James, Martial, Rashford and Greenwood, it is going to be a good fight for competition with all those young players there, which is a good things. But overall, I would like to see him go somewhere and get minutes, not go straight to the bench and play from time to time.

His signature is going to be very sought after and there is already talk about Liverpool and Chelsea also being interested. Teams want to invest in talented young players, but if teams go out to sign him at any cost, then he is going to have a big expectation on him, and he needs to play regularly to develop. He may decide to stay abroad and got to a different club like PSG, Bayern Munich or Barcelona. There will be many clubs after him and it is down to him where he goes.

As a player it is a very flattering situation when many teams are after your signature. It boosts your ego and it tells you that you are doing something right. It makes you feel good but you do have choices to make which can be a bit overwhelming, you have to make a number of decisions and calculate where you will feel good, where you won’t feel good and of course, there are a number of financial decisions to make which is important.
