“Jadon Sancho was a young player who Manchester United spent a lot of money on, who was unproven in the league,” Paul Scholes told Sky Sports’ The Overlap while discussing Man United’s recent big-money signings.
“And why would a club like Real Madrid let Varane go? If you looked at him last season, he didn’t look right. I didn’t think it was a great transfer window. Nobody at the club is taking responsibility for it. This year, Casemiro was done over two days.
“I wonder if it was the manager’s signing. A lot of money, a long contract. I think they need to put someone in charge of recruitment. Eventually, the manager will get blamed for it.”
The Red Devils have spent a combined total of over £200m for the signing of Jadon Sancho, Antony, and Casemiro – because they believe the three can play key roles in helping them get back to winning major trophies.
Sancho has had an impressive start to his second campaign with United, scoring 3 goals in 8 appearances – while Casemiro and Antony are yet to properly adapt to their new environment at Old Trafford.
