Manchester United warned that signing Jadon Sancho will NOT make them Premier League title contenders by club legend Andy Cole

Andy Cole has warned Manchester United that signing Jadon Sancho will NOT make them contenders for the Premier League.

The longest running transfer saga of the summer shows no signs of coming to a conclusion as United continue to try and sign the Borussia Dortmund ace.

Signing Sancho remains the top priority for Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, yet no bid has been officially submitted as of today.

Although reports suggest Ed Woodward will make a £90million offer, with £15m in add-ons, by next week, the club have reportedly lined up alternatives.

After watching his former side defeat Luton in the Carabao Cup, club legend Cole admitted he did not feel as though signing the 20-year-old would make Man United title challengers and said the money could be better spent elsewhere.

“I would agree with that,” Cole told talkSPORT.com. “One payer cannot make a team championship contenders.

“Unless we’re talking Messi or Ronaldo, where these guys are on a different level to anyone else, one player cannot make Manchester United title contenders.

“For instance, if they sign Sancho tomorrow, he might be able to create five or six chances or he might be able to nick himself a brace or whatever every other week.

“But he can’t stop goals going in the other end, and he can’t stop teams creating chances against Manchester United.

“Football is a collection of everyone, that’s why it is a team sport of 11 players – you marry them all together to become a better team.

“You’ve got to look at Liverpool now; Liverpool are a team and when they are on song they are the best team by a mile. Especially after last season and previously that was Manchester City the year before.

“Of course one player can improve you, but he cannot take you to that level whereby every Man United punter would think they are title contenders now.

“Because it just does not quite work like that.”
