A second placed finish and a European final would generally be greeted with pats on the back by the fans and chairpeople at football clubs, but Manchester United is no normal club. 

Old Trafford is known as the Theatre of Dreams and it’s a nickname built, not on the foundations of runners up medals, but on trophies – lots of them.

United’s trophy cabinet is jam packed with 20 Premier League titles, three Champions League and European Cups, 12 FA Cups and a Club World Cup – the medals Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side brought back from Gdansk after their dramatic defeat to Villarreal would be fortunate to earn a place in an Old Trafford draw.

However, they may be able to squeeze into the cabinet; after all, there has not been a single trophy since Jose Mourinho’s debut season in the Old Trafford dugout where United won the League Cup and the Europa League – some critics even labelled that a disappointing season.

The quality in Solskjaer’s side is unquestionable but they have always looked to be one, two or three players of being real contenders in the Premier League and in Europe.

But, according to The Sun, arguably United’s most desired player Jadon Sancho is set to be announced as a Red Devil after this summer’s European Championships.

United fans will be eagerly looking out for Sancho in the Euros

The Sun report United have managed to agree personal terms with the former Manchester City youth starlet allegedly set to earn an eye watering £350,000 per week at Old Trafford.

Negotiations with Borussia Dortmund are still ongoing but the report states United are more than confident they can get a deal over the line for the 21-year-old midfielder.

Last season United tried to bring the England international back to England but refused to match Borussia Dortmund’s alleged price tag or around £110 million.

United reportedly bid £67 million for Sancho on Thursday but the offer was unsurprisingly swiftly rejected by the German outfit who are demanding around £78 million this season.
