Man Utd warned about Jadon Sancho ‘hype’ amid £100m price tag
Manchester United have been warned not to fall for the "hype" surrounding Jadon Sancho by former player Paul Parker.
The Premier League winner confessed that he still needs to be convinced by the Borussia Dortmund star who could cost up to £100m.
Sancho has impressed massively since swapping England for Germany in 2017.
But Parker has reserved judgement on a player who is going to receive his fair share of plaudits given his nationality and age profile.
The Bundesliga club have slapped a hefty price tag on Sancho which United have been urged to think carefully about if they don't want "egg on their face".
He told Eurosport : “Is Jadon Sancho worth the money that is being talked about? All people have seen is flashes in an England shirt, and all of a sudden they think he is the next best thing.
“He is English, so we have to hype, hype, hype. I am not 100 per cent sure, given what I have seen. At the moment, I am just being honest, I am not 100 per cent sure about him.
“There are clubs like United who are willing to spend big money, but this sort of fee could leave them with egg on their face. £100m is a lot of money for a player that an English club have let go already.
“If you look at Paul Pogba, who United let go before, then having to spend an extortionate amount of money to bring him back – look how that has turned out, so far.
“On the playing side, it will be a risk. Let's see what happens after all this (the coronavirus lockdown), as that will affect it. Agents are starting to get concerned about when they are going to start earning money again.
“People talk about the value of the player going down, it just remains to be seen which clubs will have enough money to spend this sort of cash. Let’s wait until footballs have been kicked and see.”
