Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag reviews Bournemouth game
Jadon Sancho will be delighted with Manchester United’s reported interest in PSG forward Neymar if his social media activity is anything to go by. The Red Devils have been linked with a sensational summer swoop to bolster Erik ten Hag’s underperforming attack.
United’s vastly improved defence has been the foundation of a positive inaugural season under the Dutchman.
Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez’s arrivals played a significant role in David de Gea winning his second Premier League Golden Glove.
But barring Marcus Rashford’s career-best goalscoring exploits, United’s desperate need for fresh attacking firepower has been clear.
Rashford has scored 29 goals this term. Anthony Martial and Antony are the forwards with the next-highest tallies with eight.
Sancho has improved on his first season’s exploits, but six strikes remains a considerable drop-off from the numbers he produced at Borussia Dortmund.

According to L’Equipe, Ten Hag plans to address his toothless forward line by entering talks with PSG over Neymar.
The 31-year-old winger wants to leave France this summer and is said to have been in contact with Brazil team-mate Casemiro about a potential switch to Old Trafford.
The report claims United could sign him permanently or agree to an initial loan while contributing to his mouth-watering salary.
Supporters have shared their excitement over the prospect of Neymar landing in M16 next season to offer Rashford attacking support.
And Sancho will be just as ecstatic over the possibility of linking up with a player he has previously described as his idol.

In May 2015, Barcelona defeated PSG 6-1 at the Nou Camp to complete one of the most shocking comebacks in Champions League history after losing the first leg 4-0.
Neymar, playing for the La Liga giants before his world-record £200million move to PSG in 2017, scored in the 88th and 91st minutes before Roberto’s 95th-minute winner.
In reaction to the astonishing game, 14-year-old Sancho, just weeks after joining Manchester City’s academy from Watford, tweeted: “My idol Neymar.”
Eight years on, Sancho, now 23, could be lining up with him in the Champions League next term.
