So that’s why they’re agreed Sancho should be their top target this time around, despite their obvious admiration for both Haaland and Kane.
Solskjaer has told club chiefs that the Dortmund star would be the perfect player to go alongside the likes of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani in his attack.
And that, certainly, would give United a new dimension on the right wing.
They’ve struggled in that department ever since Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Real Madrid back in 2009, with expensive recruits Memphis Depay, Angel Di Maria and Alexis Sanchez all flopping in the time since.
And that’s why Solskjaer, and now those higher up in the towers of power, are so sold on his signing.
