Man Utd could be set for a January transfer spending spree with Jadon Sancho and Erling Braut Haaland boosting their attacking options
Manchester United have struggled for goals so far this season – but they look set to have no shortage of firepower if they get their way in the transfer window.
The Red Devils are weighing up a stunning £200million swoop of wonderkids Jadon Sancho and Erling-Braut Haaland to bolster Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s options.
The 19-year-old duo are amongst Europe’s hottest prospects with the prolific Haaland starring for Red Bull Salzburg and Sancho potentially available after a tough start to the season with Borussia Dortmund.
Both players top United’s list of priority targets as they look to splash the cash in January after a tough start to the season.
