Two clubs lead race to sign Jadon Sancho next summer, Barcelona star unhappy under Ronald Koeman and more news
The Man City academy graduate looked on the verge of joining the Red Devils this summer and even attracted a €100m bid for his services from the Old Trafford outfit. Dortmund, however, were adamant of not letting him leave until United met their €120m asking price of the England international.Aside from the fact that United refused to meet Dortmund’s valuation of their prized asset, Sancho’s unwillingness to hand in a transfer request also ensured that he’d be spending the 2020/21 season with the Signal Iduna Park residents.

Koeman has given that place in the starting XI to Lionel Messi who now leads the line for the Camp Nou outfit with Philippe Coutinho occupying the role just behind Messi that Griezmann made his own during his time at Atletico Madrid.
And Deschamps believes that his new role is unsettling for Griezmann who he believes ‘doesn’t have the ability’ to beat opposition players on the wing. The French manager further added that the 29-year-old ‘needs to touch the ball a lot’ and for that he ‘must play in his [natural] position’.The 27-year-old Ghana international joined the Gunners on transfer deadline day after the North London club activated the €50m release clause in his Atletico Madrid contract.
