- Jadon Sancho will be missing from Man Utd’s first team throughout the majority of this season
- After Arsenal’s loss, England International fell out with Erik Ten Hag
- Dortmund, Juventus and clubs in Saudi Arabia are interested in the player who wants to play in Europe’s premier leagues
Jadon’s Sancho representatives insist that the Manchester United forward won’t be sold to the highest offer, despite interest in Europe and Saudi Arabia.
90min believes that Sancho is still due to depart United during the January Transfer Window, despite Sir Jim Ratcliffe having completed the purchase of his 25% stake and assumed control over the footballing structures.
Sancho was excluded from the team after a disagreement with Erik ten Haag following ten Haag’s comments that the England player had not been included in the matchday squad because of his lackluster performance in training. Sancho replied with a statement on the social media platform X, formerly Twitter. The post remained pinned for a few days.
United has confirmed that Sancho is no longer a member of the first-team squad. This situation continues to exist, and 90min reported a few weeks back that the relationship between the two was beyond repair. Ten Hag wanted Sancho’s apology to repair fences. However, there is no indication that this will happen.
A few clubs, both big and small, have expressed interest in this player over the past year. This includes last summer, as well as since the recent fallout. However, very few are willing to give United the financial package they need to make them sell.
Sancho is not sure if clubs from Saudi Arabia are interested in signing him. Loans could be a better option. 90minreported interest from clubs in Saudi Arabialate in the summer but Sancho was not keen then and is understood to remain unconvinced.
Sancho representatives made it very clear that United would be the ones to decide Sancho’s next step, but by 2024 there could be different people making decisions in Old Trafford.
In the 23-year old’s opinion, he would prefer to return to his former club Borussia Dortmund . He joined United in 2021 from Borussia Dortmund. However, the player knows that a move isn’t easy, given the commitment United made to pay the transfer fee at the time, and the wage package – which places him as one of United’s top earners.
Sancho will need United to show flexibility to facilitate the transfer. The Bundesliga club may have to create room for him in their squad and it is likely that a loan would be required. Sancho is prepared to give up a portion of his salary to make the move, as Germany is Sancho’s first choice. It is also likely to be his fastest way to get his career back on course.
Juventus is also interested in Sancho, but like Dortmund they aren’t in a position where they can complete a move permanently at the prices United hopes for or expects. United are willing to do a temporary loan, but they would prefer certain obligations that would trigger a long-term deal. For example, based on the appearance of the player. But both suitors want an option.
United is also willing to consider longer-term loan agreements, potentially up to 18 months, in the hope that any temporary move will increase his value so as to be close to what they paid initially. Sancho is also attracting interest from Spanish clubs.
Sancho is open to Turkey, but he wants to remain in Europe’s premier league.
