Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to build a young team which comprise of young English talents as the base in which to build on as he looks to return Manchester united back to glory days.Last summer we saw the Red devils boss sanction the signing of Daniel James,Aaron Wan-bissaka and Harry Maguire which are all English.Sancho fits this profile perfectly,although the 20-year old winger is reportedly keen on the move to Old Trafford,it remains to be seen if he'll still go ahead with the move should United fail to qualify for the Champions league this season.
