Paul parker tips Manchester United to sign Mitoma and sell Sancho
Jadon Sancho joined Man United for £75m in the summer of 2021. However, he failed to live up to expectations as he only scored 10 goals. Parker believes United should get rid of the England international.
After four years in the Bundesliga with Dortmund, where he scored 50 goals across 137 appearances, Jadon Sancho joined Manchester United on a £75m transfer in the summer of 2021. However, he failed to live up to expectations as Erik ten Hag dropped him earlier this season. Paul Parker believes the Red Devils should replace the 23-year-old with Brighton's Japanese winger, Mitoma.

of Mitoma: “
I really like him. He is very direct and he wants to go on the outside of his opponent, which is a rarity in today’s football. No defender wants that and he is very good at that. Mitoma would also be a very good PR-signing. To see a Japanese player at Man United would be a huge story.
“I would love to see him at Man United but then they have to offload some of their wingers and they could start with getting rid of Jadon Sancho. I would rather have Mitoma in the squad than him. He has proven himself in the Premier League and I doubt that Sancho will ever do that. I think he should go back to Germany and play in his comfort zone where he is best. But if he comes to the club, Man United needs to figure out what to do with Marcus Rashford, who is best at the left wing. But that’s a luxury problem to have two good wingers.”
Mitoma has scored nine goals and contributed five assists this season, with Parker believing he would be a better addition than Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele. Parker added:
“I would definitely not want to have Ousmane Dembele at Man United. He is always injured and he hasn’t proved himself at a big club. He did well at Dortmund but hasn’t done it at Barcelona yet, so he is not a player that I would want. I don’t think he is better than the wingers they already have and that says a lot about him because it isn’t the most difficult thing to be better than Jadon Sancho and Antony. He is predictable and I have to say no to him at Man United. Wherever he goes, the manager needs to make him into a different animal than what he is now.”
