Dimitar Berbatov believes that Jadon Sancho would make Manchester United better, but he does not want Mason Greenwood to be dropped from the team for him, as quoted in The Daily Star.

The former United striker believes that if Alexis Sanchez does not return from his loan spell at Inter Milan, then it would make room for Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho.

However, Berbatov is worried that if the 20-year-old England international does arrive at Old Trafford this summer, then it will affect the playing time that Greenwood would get next season.

According to The Manchester Evening News, United are interested in signing the former Manchester City prospect this summer.

The Daily Star quotes Berbatov as saying: “They need a centre-back, maybe a right back also as Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the only option at the moment.

“It looks like Alexis Sanchez might stay at Inter permanently, which would make room for Jadon Sancho to go to United from Dortmund, and it would be a very interesting transfer.

“But who, out of Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood or Anthony Martial, makes way for Sancho? If they get the England man and the defenders, they can improve to a higher level.

“I don’t want to see Greenwood dropped at this point while he develops, he could be very special and has earned his chance to shine next season.”

Stats

According to WhoScored, Sancho made 25 starts and seven substitute appearances in the Bundesliga for Dortmund this past season, scoring 17 goals and providing 16 assists in the process.

The winger has also made seven starts and one substitute appearance in the Champions League for the German club this campaign, scoring two goals and providing two assists in the league, according to WhoScored.

Greenwood has enjoyed a breakthrough season at United and has established himself as an important player in manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.

According to WhoScored, the 18-year-old forward made 12 starts and 19 substitute appearances in the Premier League for the Red Devils this past season, scoring 10 goals and providing one assist in the process.

The teenager has also scored five goals and provided one assist in seven Europa League games for the Red Devils this campaign, according to WhoScored.
