Sancho told joining Man Utd would be wrong decision

Glen Johnson believes a man generating plenty of interest at Borussia Dortmund should avoid rushing into any future call
Jadon Sancho has been warned that joining Manchester United would be “the wrong decision”, with Glen Johnson seeing Liverpool and Chelsea as better fits for the England international.

Speculation is building again when it comes to the 19-year-old winger and his future plans.

The January window closed with no deal done, but the summer is expected to deliver a flurry of activity.

Big-money bids are reportedly being lined up for Sancho, with leading sides across the Premier League eager to bring a Manchester City academy graduate back to his roots .

Johnson concedes that a move looks likely, but the former Three Lions defender has urged Sancho to consider his options carefully.

He told talkSPORT: “Pretty much everyone that can afford his transfer fee are going to want him, so he can take his time to choose his next club.

“But I think it would be the wrong decision to sign for Man United.

“If he goes to a team like United at the moment, of course it’s a fantastic club and it would look great on his CV, but the team are not where they should be and I think as a young kid they would put too much pressure on him from day one.

“A young lad like that shouldn’t have to fly the flag for a club like United. I think he’d feel the pressure coming to the Premier League anywhere, so to carry that with him as well would be tough.

“Marcus Rashford is flying the flag for them now and his body is feeling the punishment. With young kids you’ve got to be careful because some of them are still growing.

“If he was to go to Chelsea or Liverpool or maybe a club in Spain, because he won’t be needed to come straight in and impress, they would bleed him into the team over time which would help his development. He might not be guaranteed to start every week, but he’d be doing it in the right way.

“Whereas if he went to United, yes he’d start every week but the team are struggling so it would be hard for him to find his feet.”
