Manchester United have been told they have spent their money recklessly during this transfer window amid Jadon Sancho’s impending arrival.
The Red Devils are expected to announce the £ 73million deal for the England star, who will join Borussia Dortmund.
Sancho will be an asset to the club, but not a single manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer necessarily needed, according to Scott Minto.
The 21-year-old is the latest member of Man United’s impressive collection of wide players, which includes Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Daniel James.
Minto thinks they need a center forward more, with Edinson Cavani being the only one consistently playing that role for them.
And with Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham looking uncertain, Minto believes Man United should have used the money they had to bring Sancho closer to the England forward instead.
“I think they didn’t necessarily need Jadon Sancho, they have enough wide and fast players in their squad,” Minto told talkSPORT.
“I would have put this money, plus everything [Spurs chairman] Daniel Levy wants to get the the hottest property in English football right now and that’s Harry Kane.
Man United have shown their impressive financial strength in a transfer market that will restrict many clubs due to the losses they suffered during the coronavirus crisis.
They are said to be getting closer to Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, who is valued at £ 50million.
But there are no signs of an offer for Kane, with Manchester City seen as his most likely destination if he leaves Spurs this summer.
