    To be fair both players fell to pieces under Jose.
    Cuadrado is a good option for Juve now and Sanchez under Ole could get back into the swing of things.

    I too would prefer a long term signing but we do have Chong in reserve.

    There's 0 chance of Costa leaving in January, if he does it will be at the end of the year

    A loan deal could be appropriate.

    He would instantly be our best RW, we don't have anyone else. Bring him in.

    Not too sure about him. He is too inconsistent. It would be better to wait for the new manager to come in before investing 50m on a player.

    His level is AC Milan or Valencia.

    Better player than people give him credit for especially given the teams he's already had on his CV.....

    Jadon should be united's next RW.

    Good player but I would stay far. There's a reason why he didn't make it at Bayern, and now at Juve. Let's go full in for Jadon Sancho.

    This. We won't get back to our former best with a 29 year old reject who relies on pace

    Much much much rather go for Sancho, even if we have to wait.

    He's a very good player who plays in our weakest position. I'd be very happy if we signed him.

    I would take him given our RW state, he’s very quick and agile with very good dribbling and crossing ability. Decision making lets him down few times too often though but he would slot in well in this league imo.

    I wouldn't mind him here, but really is 60mil good business?

    Typical us, two years late and paying over the odds for an average player.

    0 goals, 2 assists in 16 games this season (or 490 mins if you like).

    We shouldn't pay Juve anything more than they did last summer.

    Fingers crossed those reports are rubbish. €60m for a player with zero room for improvement is absolutely mental. If they really want him that bad just swap him for Alexis for fecks sake.

    I’d rather give Greenwood a few chances at RWF in a front 3 than splash more cash on Costa

    Maybe the fee is steep but I insist, we won't sign a better RW. Talk about Dembele, Sancho is a pipe dream.

    He's not a good player. He takes on 2-3 players just to make a bad cross or a bad pass.

    Some serious underrating in this thread. yeah, he's not as good as Robben was but to say he's not a good player or is Valencia standard...

    Nah, a loan deal would be ideal, any thing else depends on the price.

    Soon Dortmund would want dembele price for him. Their scouting network keep luring young talents with attractive packages to the player and the family as well and make on so much profit, while ours just watches and watches.

    Id rather spend 100m on someone like Jadon whose still 19 years old then 60m on a 28 year old winger, whose not particularly great and who relies heavily on pace.

    If i had to spend that much right now, i'd rather spend on Erikson.

    Erikson would cost us a lot more than Sancho. Spurs would want silly money, and I think he'd much rather go to Spain anyway.

    Frustrating player who spits at others. What could go wrong?

    People keep saying this, but whenever I see Tottenham play, he is deployed on the right.

    He'll have 1 year left on his contract come the summer so I'd be surprised if Spurs get much more than £60m tbh.

    Ah didn't know about his contract to be fair, still think he'll go to Spain and Spurs will only sell abroad, if he decides to leave at all.
