Jadon Sancho informs Solskjaer of things he desires in Manchester United philosophy.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was provided a simplistic brief when he returned to the club as caretaker manager back in December 2018, that assignment being to ‘put smiles back on people’s faces’ after a harsh public separation from the previous manager Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United had risen to become a deadly environment by the time the Norwegian arrived, though it wouldn’t take long for him to turn things around with a new positivity both on and off the pitch.

A key to that was Solskjaer’s philosophy for the side with the Norwegian intent to see United utilize the same pace and trickery up front that he saw during his Old Trafford playing career.

“Pace and power, Man United, that’s what we are,” he stated four games into his caretaker spell. “When you have players, like we have, with pace – Paul [Pogba], Anthony [Martial], Alexis [Sanchez], Romelu [Lukaku], [Marcus] Rashford – that’s how we played with Andy [Cole] and Yorkie [Dwight Yorke] with Giggsy [Ryan Giggs] and Becks [David Beckham] down the sides. We attacked quickly and that’s my philosophy as well.”

Okay, so two of the players he name-checked are no longer at the club, but in their position, he has added more pace in Mason Greenwood, Amad, and Daniel James while Edinson Cavani presents the brute force which was missing from a sometimes limp forward line.


He added: “That’s always been the way I like to play football. Get the ball up in the opposition’s half as soon as you can, as quickly as you can. If you score, fantastic. If not then you’ve got to have patient build-up play. But attack quickly.”

It’s that aspired philosophy that has guided him towards Jadon Sancho this summer as Solskjaer seems to add world-class talent to a forward line that is already brimming with high-quality individuals.

Sancho has agreed on terms in principle to join in the coming weeks while Sports Dias conjectures the player’s camp requires the winger to join United, notwithstanding having their opening offer declined by Dortmund last week.

United’s proposal of £67million was around £10m short of Dortmund’s call for an up-front fee for Sancho but the expectation from both parties is the transfer will go through.

The club will expect to reach another breakthrough in the days ahead but Sancho will be well meriting the wait given he ticks every box of the recruitment maneuvering as a young world-class and homegrown talent playing in a position that needs reinforcing.

Given his strengths as both a dribbler and a crosser, Sancho will fit well into Solskjaer’s outlook for next season and could even open up the chance of playing a more traditional 4-4-2 formation if the opposition directs such an approach.

As things stand Old Trafford is on track to welcome thousands of fans back when the new season kick-offs and the sight of Sancho tearing down the wing before lashing a cross into the box would be the perfect welcoming reward after such a long time away.

Solskjaer’s love of remorse is often ridiculed, but by adding the pace and power of Sancho this summer he might very well be bringing back recollections of a time when the right-wing role at United was the most exciting in English football.

His signature could well serve the final piece of the jigsaw lacked to install a serious Premier League title charge, at the very least it would be further reinforcement of the philosophy Solskjaer is still looking to implement.
