Andy Cole isn’t worried over Manchester United missing out on Jadon Sancho as they have enough firepower at their disposal already.

Speculation linking Manchester United with a move for Sancho refuses to die down despite Borussia Dortmund insisting the winger is going nowhere.

The 20-year-old star himself recently disclosed that he’s happy in Germany and plans to adopt a leadership role within the squad this season in light of the emerging young talents, such as 17-year-old Giovanni Reyna.

Time isn’t on United’s side either, with the English transfer window shutting on October 5. Therefore, they have just over two weeks left to pull off a sensational deal for Sancho or otherwise rely on their current options instead.

Despite the looming prospect over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer not landing his top target, however, Cole is convinced his former teammate has no reason to worry.

The ex-Red Devils striker told The Mirror: “Ole’s got Man United playing the way Man United should be player — attacking football.

“Some of the signings Ole’s made have made Manchester United better, more creative.

“I think he’s got them playing with a freedom now that they should be playing with and that’s what everyone wanted to see.

“I think they (the front three) are all good enough to hold that responsibility of scoring goals. They played very well last season, all contributing and creating chances.

“If they can carry that form into this season, continue doing the right things then I’d like to think Manchester United can kick-on from last season.”

Dortmund manager Lucien Favre has also insisted that Sancho remains a part of his plans for next season.
