The issue with holding off signing Sancho until next summer is the uncertainty regarding the future competition for his signature. Put it this way would you rather sign Zaha and Grealish and see Sancho sign for Liverpool or Chelsea next summer or sign Sancho and see Grealish and Zaha go elsewhere. I know which one I'd pick. We need to strike a deal this summer whilst we're in the unique position of having a clear run at him.If I had the choice of choosing only one of the below 2 Options, I would 100 percent choose option 2.
1 - sign sancho for £100 million
2 - sign Zaha and grealish for £100 million
Grealish can play 4-5 attacking positions to a very high level and Zaha is a brilliant winger and soon to be 28. I’d do this and sign sancho next year.
Assuming and hoping the Jiminez( £30 million) rumours are true, we would be very well placed.
Our back 5 picks itself and I’d say that’s 5 first teamers there and there replacements I wouldn’t call first teamers (players who should be starting.) Then in midfield and attack we would have around 11 (12 next year with sancho) first teamers.
Matic, Fred, Mctominay, Pogba, Grealish, Zaha, Jiminez, Martial, Rashford, Greeenwood, Bruno, (Sancho).
16-17 first team ready players with the right age blend which is what all teams need in the modern game. Zaha and Jiminez Will be 29 & 30 when sancho signs giving us a balanced but potent squad.
