I reckon Sancho will end up going on loan to Dortmund again.
Yeah I think you could well be right. Unless PSG suddenly decide he is the chosen one, which you never know if he has a good CL final, I don't see any other club offering him what he wants and he is clearly at home at BVB.

There is an awfully strong rumour round the agent circuit(strong enough I believe it) that ETH had one run in with him(Sancho's fault) and made him his fall guy to stamp his authority on the rest of the squad. A lot of them want him gone. I wouldn't at all be surprised if ETH is gone post the cup final and Sancho gets another chance at United.

That makes a lot of sense. You would think whoever the next manager is would want to give him a chance considering how well he's doing on loan. I guess it just depends on if any bridges are burnt with the higher ups. Maybe Sancho wont want to stay another day at Utd but if he's open to it then why wouldn't the new manager want to give him a chance.

I was certain that Ten Hag would be gone in the summer, but recently all the ex-United players in the media (Neville, Keane etc.) have taken an about turn on him and are all backing him and saying they hope he stays.

Could be completely wrong but it reeks of them being tipped off by the club that he's staying and so to get behind him no matter what.

If Ten Hag does go though, then yeah Sancho 100% gets given another chance.

The club plans to discuss Connor Gallagher's situation at the end of the season to determine if an early move is feasible. Currently, there are no ongoing contract talks with Chelsea. However, the future is uncertain. Ange is looking to overhaul the midfield, and players like Bentancur, Bissouma, Lo Celso, and Højbjerg might leave if the right offers come in. The expectation is that Bentancur will be given an opportunity to complete a full pre-season to see if he can achieve his former levels.
Really hope Benny stays,quality player when fit. Played the best he has since injury in the last game.
Thanks for passing on info as always.

One last thing before I head off keep an eye on Sancho we still do hold an interest from before his dortmund days . Nothing firm with talks but it’s being explored potentially .

I mentioned him about a month or so ago, got a few disagrees for it 😂 so some won't be happy at seeing that!

With regards to the ITK, everything stated regarding the wants/needs to round out the squad has put me at ease given the apparent logic behind it all. We’ve signed some really good players without CL Football, and I think we will still attract good players when they hear Ange and his view for where the club is going. That, along with the fact that the positions we need signings the most are really up for grabs in terms of significant playing time bodes well. Sell a few of the obvious players that need sold and we could have a really good window.

I’d be happy with him, think he’s been poorly used at Man U.

And ETH could have handled him much better than he has.

It´s fairly obvious that as long as ETH is at MU, Sancho will not play for them - or even train with them.

Just as obvoious (kind of) is it that if/when ETH leaves, the next head coach will be told to try to get Sancho ticking. How much they paid for him + plus the stupid wages; it´s just too expensive not to.

Plus: there is no club in the world that will pay him even close to the wages he´s on, or pay MU half of what they paid for him, so he´s more or less unsellable.

Reminds me: don´t we have a beanie stand we overpaid for and gave extortionate wages? That we ship out on loans all over the place (except that doesn´t even try to make an impact anywhere).

Hmmm. I wonder whether the right offer arrives though? It will be interesting to see whether we've learnt from past experience where we've held out for unreasonable fees only to see the same old faces stink up the bench the next season.

Hopefully him switching agents in order to find a good transfer for himself also bears fruition for us.

Alex banea is still highly regarded. A marquee winger is non negotiable for ange. Striker is also seen as a priority with a cm . Anything else will be shaped around player movement .
Marquee winger sounds great, need to get it right though. Not sure was actually available in our price range though.
