Owen Hargreaves says it is imperative that Manchester United sign ‘perfect’ Jadon Sancho – after Graeme Souness urged the Premier League club to withdraw from the transfer race.

Former Liverpool captain Souness believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be better served bolstering his squad in other areas rather than spending around £100m on Borussia Dortmund and England forward Sancho.

Writing in a column for The Times, Souness said: ‘It looks like Manchester United will have to spend the best part of £100million to get Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund in this window and I’m not sure that’s their priority.

‘There are other places they need to strengthen because Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford can score in any company.’

But former Manchester United and England midfielder Hargreaves insists Sancho would be ‘perfect’ for the Red Devils and says the Premier League club should do everything they can to secure his signature.

He told talkSPORT: ‘I hope he comes over here. He would be perfect for Manchester United.

‘I don’t think they [Borussia Dortmund] have much of an argument because they’ve pretty much sold everyone, whether it’s been Lewandowski, Hummels, Gotze or Dembele.

‘Everyone has pretty much left there. We know they are a selling club and it’s obviously about money.

‘In Jadon, as much as we are in a difficult space right now with everything going in the world, it will be money well spent.

‘You just have to get the deal done. You saw what Bruno Fernandes did to Manchester United. Jadon would do the same.’

Sancho, 20, has flourished since joining Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City in 2017.

He is said to be keen on a return to the Premier League but willing to wait another season before leaving to join Manchester United.
