Dimitar Berbatov has insisted Manchester United do not need Jadon Sancho as speculation about the England forward's future intensifies once again.
The 20-year-old Dortmund star was strongly liked with a move to Old Trafford over the summer, but eventually nothing came to fruition and he stayed in Germany.
There have recently been reports that Dortmund may need to sell the player at the end of the season, however, due to their perilous financial situation.
United are believed to be still monitoring Sancho carefully, and may well make a move.
But speaking to Betfair, Berbatov warned that he could end up in a similar position to Donny van de Beek, who has spent the majority of his first campaign at United sitting on the bench.
"I have read more rumours about Jadon Sancho at Dortmund and how United could sign him," Berbatov said. "So, you sign Sancho and where do you play him?
"They will have lots of games in the Europa League and FA Cup, but then what happens to people like Donny Van de Beek. It would be Van de Beek two if they sign him. Yes, he is a great player but then do you just have too much talent.
"Cavani has been a great signing and do you drop him? You will not turn down Sancho and he is a good player and it is whether you want that luxury headache where you tell people you are rested today etc – it is not a good conversation, I am telling you from experience."
Berbatov does not believe the transfer will end up going through, adding: "I still don't think it will happen. The way things are going at the moment credit has to go to Ole and the players now.
"He has found the right balance about which players are playing. He has found that delicate balance with players not complaining and that is a difficult thing. The manager has taken the right decisions so far.
"If Sancho signed for another team or a rival it wouldn't be a blow. Sir Alex Ferguson got rid of players because no-one is bigger than the club, they were replaced.
"That's still the case, no one is bigger than Manchester United, so, I'm not expecting anything to happen."
