Rooney advices player not to join Manchester United

The Manchester United legend has been vocal about his former club’s situation and his latest actions might throw a spanner in the works regarding recruitment.

Wayne Rooney is among the greatest player to pull on the Manchester United reds. The Englishman left the club after 13 trophy-laden years as the club’s all-time top goalscorer, surpassing Sir Bobby Charlton. Despite his exploits at Old Trafford, Rooney’s departure wasn’t befitting of a club legend. However, he has been airing his opinions about the club’s situation and the road to recovery. But his advice to one of Red Devils’ top targets might irk a few at the club.

Sancho should stay at Dortmund

Wayne Rooney has urged Jadon Sancho to snub Manchester United and continue to build his career in Germany. “Dortmund is a great club with great fans, they trust their young players and you can see that in Sancho and the progress he has made in the last 12 months,” Rooney told Bild.

“Now Jadon has to ask himself whether he would get the playing time he gets in Dortmund when he moves to England, or would he just sit on the bench? Playing time is so important for a young player like Jadon, so if he gets the most playing time in Dortmund, he should stay there.”

Sancho on his future

Jadon Sancho had dropped a hint regarding his future earlier this summer. While the links to Manchester United started to gather pace, the former City graduate has suggested that he might be sticking around in the Bundesliga.

“Next season our target is to win, not come second,” the winger said.“I’m really happy with how I played this season. I wasn’t playing that much at the start of the season but was in the team more often later on. It’s all about hard work.”

Author’s Take

Jadon Sancho is the player straight out of the Manchester United mould. The youngster possesses frightening pace, faultless close control and the kind of dribbling skills which Old Trafford has grown used to in the past. he also fits into Solskjaer’s ethos of buying young and English. But Wayne Rooney also makes a fair point. By remaining at a stable club which can offer Champions League will certainly make him a much more rounded player. Now, it is up to Sancho to decide if he picks the safe options or takes a gamble.
