Man Utd ‘not shopping in Harrods any more’ with Arnautovic better choice than ‘hiding’ Jadon Sancho, says Agbonlahor


GABBY AGBONLAHOR has warned Manchester United fans they are “not shopping in Harrods any more because Sancho is better than harrods”.

And the former Aston Villa ace has questioned why many did not want to sign Marko Arnautovic.

That’s because Agbonlahor reckons the ex-West Ham star is BETTER than £73million winger Jadon Sancho.

United stunned their own supporters by making a move for Bologna forward Arnautovic at the weekend.

The shock news came as Erik ten Hag’s side was beaten 2-1 by Brighton at Old Trafford in his first Prem game.

Bologna promptly rejected the bid, leading to United preparing a fresh move.

But the angry reaction from fans saw the Red Devils abandon the deal yesterday.

However, Agbonlahor does not understand why United fans are being so picky.

He feels the club will struggle to attract big players due to their on-field woes.

And Arnautovic is actually a good footballer who would add depth to their current squad.

Indeed, Agbonlahor is convinced Arnautovic would have made more of an impact than Sancho in the starting XI.

And supporters should instead be getting behind Ten Hag, who is also attempting to sign Adrien Rabiot from Juventus.

Agbonlahor declared: “I don’t know who Man United fans think they are. Arnautovic makes that squad a better squad.

“They’ve got to stop living in the Fergie years. Man United, now, are a club who can’t attract top players.

“There’s talk about looking to the future with younger players. They’ve done that with Sancho and he can’t take anyone on.

“He gets the ball, he passes it back to Dalot, he hides, he doesn’t get past people.

“Look at the wingers they’ve had in the past. Valencia – he used to go past people and put crosses in. Even Nani was outstanding. Sancho doesn’t do that.

“I’d rather Arnautovic in my team than Jadon Sancho at the moment.

“If he makes that team better for a season, get him in. It’s the manager’s choice, it doesn’t matter what the fans think.

“After he scores two goals, they’ll change their mind. They’re not shopping in Harrods anymore, they’re in a different place.”
