An element of this potential Sancho transfer that is not talked about enough is his ability to play LW. We may not need to replace Martial if we're able to push Rashford to CF. I'd argue Sancho is actually more effective than Rashford at LW.2 years left on his contract and Dortmund has lost lot of money due to covid. I can't see how Dortmund is trying to play hard ball on this one again, they will be stupid to do so. However, I have seen them being stupid on Hummels and Lewandowski cases that they chose to play hard ball on players who only had around 2 years left in their contract but end up as failure which lost them for nothing and the worst part was lost them to their rival. But that was ages ago.
RW is my no 1 priority and I think the club also believe this is one of their main priority. Sancho will be a great additional because he can offer goals, assists, flair and versatility to play the three attacking mid positions. We had 9 draws in the league this season and most of them were 0-0 results or under 2 goal, adding him to the squad will improve us massively for that 0-0 draw results we had.
Front 3 of Sancho - Rashford - Greenwood (or Diallo) looks quite appealing to me.
