Sunk cost of Sanchez holding Man United back

Sunk cost of Sanchez holding Man United back

It has prompted talk about the Brazilian's future, with Manchester United one of the clubs interested in signing the ex-Liverpool man.

The Sunday Express is reporting that the Red Devils boss will be handed a record summer transfer budget to overhaul Manchester United's ageing squad.

It may also be one that helps United seek a buyer for a player who, at nearly £500,000 a week, they are keen to offload but who has few suitors.

According to the same story, Manchester United are looking at Borussia Dortmund's England worldwide Jadon Sancho as a potential recruit.

"That memory from Paris will help the players know we can turn things around", said the United manager during his news conference.

Manchester United had lost 2-0 in the first leg against Paris Saint-Germain but were able to win 3-1 at the Parc des Princes, advancing to the last eight as a result, and they will look to repeat that feat on Tuesday night, having lost 1-0 to their Catalan opponents in the first leg. "If we give players like (Luis) Suarez, (Philippe) Coutinho, (Lionel) Messi, or (Arturo) Vidal time on the ball, they can hurt you".

"Let's hope when he's on the pitch he can be happy with his performance". Barcelona at Nou Camp is a hard prospect, but the memory from that night will live with the players.

After the loss, Chelsea are now fourth on the table with 66 points from 34 games and they have now played one game more than their top-four rivals.

"Sometimes people have said to me it has to be our year because of 20 years ago and being back at the Nou Camp but to go through, we have to perform and have to deserve it".

"That's why the best strikers are the most expensive ones". "We've been practising finishing, but when you don't work the keeper you can't score". I am sure he wants to prove a point and prove point for us as well.

"We know we will create chances and we have a goal threat, but it's about taking a deep breath and taking those chances".

Marouane Fellaini is the only player to score for United at home in the Champions League this season and Solskjaer has warned his frontline they need to improve.

"We need to defend well and we need to score. Let's hope he ends the season great for us".

A Champions League quarter-final at the Camp Nou is exactly the sort of stage United's number seven was signed for.

Given the draw, Manchester United were the outsiders of the four English clubs to reach the semi-finals prior to the first legs.
