Is Jadon Sancho really worth the 100 plus million fee?

Hakimi wasn't their player he has been already sold by Real to Inter and nobody is paying big money to sign rest on the list.
Apologies, I was thinking Akanji. I disagree, Brandt would fetch a hefty price.

To think we hesitated to buy him for 110 million but we wasted 75-80 million on de beek who we brought for 35-40 million but can barely get a game and also needlessly bringing Henderson back to the club to rot on the bench when we could have got 40 -50 million for him whilst his stock was high and now he wants a loan in January and Romero wants out as well because ole has handled the situation badly

It was the right move not to spend 100m on Sancho. Dortmund is trying to rip our wallet on player that is not worth 100m. The 35m-40m should have been used on Partey instead of de Beek.

Tbh I would have much rather we had spent 110-120 million on acquiring two world class fullbacks to help allow for more flexibility with using different winger-less formations.

Henderson wanted to come back. He had offers to go out on loan again.

our fans are always so negative. Henderson being back at the club has brought out the best in DDG. That’s a massive positive, and doesn’t show that OGS has handled the situation badly as all. The plan was always to move Romero on, that failing does not lie with the manager.

Have you seen Sancho`s form and how much money clubs have lost due to the pandemic? Utd were 100% correct not to pay the 110m for Sancho especially with BVB wanting ALL OF IT up front.
Granted VDB`s buy is looking strange but everyone in this forum was complaining about how poor our depth beyond Pogba/Bruno was and did you see how shocking DDG was last season? He needed competition to get the best out of him which we have with Deano. If we sold him and he did well elsewhere and DDG at 30 on big wages continued to underperform you`d still be complaining

Trying to comprehend how your mind works is hurting my own brain. Is VDB worth 35-40 or 75-80? I'm assuming you added the wages for some reason for him but not for Sancho's overall fee? Also nobody was going to spend 40-50 million Dean Henderson. Jesus, can the caf do a better job of filtering out people like this.

He wasn't worth it in a million years, though he'd obviously still be a good signing next summer as we're desperate for a top right winger.
