Manchester United may be facing struggles in their pursuits of Jadon Sancho and Ousmane Dembele.
But Sancho and Dembele’s incredible attacking stats show why United need to keep pushing until the transfer window closes on October 5.
Since his first senior appearance for Dortmund in 2017, Sancho has been directly involve in 59 league goals, according to statmandave.
Dembele has recorded 57 direct goal involvements – but that is since his first senior appearance for Rennes in 2015.
United’s front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood scored 62 goals between them last season.
The English teenager made his breakthrough to the first team last year, meaning he has been involved in 11 senior league goals.
Since Sancho’s debut, though, Rashford  and Martial  have both been short of the 20-year-old in their creative impact.
It comes as Solskajer has remained tight-lipped on United’s plans for the highly-rated European forwards.
