Numerous comparisons have also been made with world-class players Cristiano Ronaldo and Robin van Persie.
The natural talent and unmistakable superstar potential of Greenwood make him one of Europe’s most desirable stars, never mind the Premier League.
It is not surprising, that some fans are wondering now, in particular in the present economic climate, whether United really ought to continue considering spending on Jadon Sancho.
Obviously, the curiosity of United in Sancho has long lasted; it dates back to the manager’s time of Jose Mourinho.
The winger, who has since joined England, established himself as one of the most precious attackers on the planet, proved that it was a shrewd decision.
United is eager to sign Sancho because current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big 20-year-old admirer.
Dortmund had applied for their prized possession over €100 million before the football suspension caused by the Covid-19 outbreak, and CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke says nothing had changed in this respect.
“There will be no coronavirus discount on Jadon,” he told Sport1. “We have left the period where we had to sell players. I don’t think there will be a summer transfer for him.”
“If Jadon were to leave, we would once again be active in strengthening our attack,” sporting director Michael Zorc told Kicker. “There are certainly one or two players we have our sights on.”
“You can’t leave players out when they score goals,” Solskjaer told reporters. “It’s almost impossible.”
The Front three of United was undoubtedly productive after the restart.
Now, they have 56 goals, and Greenwood is 16. No need to break them now, probably. Sancho would add an additional dimension to the next term attack, however the time it takes for Greenwood is not necessarily less.
It should also be emphasized that, while Sancho (17) earned more League goals this year than Greenwood (9), the United has an average of better goals a minute (one per 111 minutes) and only started eight games.
So, Greenwood or Sancho? The question Solskjaer is going to ask his bosses is: why not both?
