Jadon Sancho is on the verge of leaving Manchester United following his fall-out with manager Erik ten Hag
and five potential destinations have emerged ahead of the January transfer window.
Jadon Sancho is nearing the end of his Manchester United career as Sir Jim Ratcliffe is planning to part ways with the winger in the New Year.
Britain’s richest man has struck a £1.3billion deal for a minority stake in the club and turn, will oversee footballing operations.
One of the main things on the agenda is to address Sancho’s future after the former Borussia Dortmund star fell out
with manager Erik ten Hag and has refused to apologize.
As reported by The Sun, Sancho is one of several misfiring United players that the club would be willing to get rid of in January.
Unlike Antony and Anthony Martial, two other players named in the report,
Sancho is not in Ten Hag’s long-term plans following their bust-up.
In turn, Mirror Football has identified five different clubs Sancho could aim to join in January in a bid to revive his flatlining career.
Sancho has been the subject of interest from Saudi outfits before and that interest is expected to reignite ahead of the next window.
Multiple clubs in the Saudi Pro League have been monitoring the situation and could look to swoop.
Given the vast amount of wealth Saudi sides boast, meeting Sancho’s hefty wage demands is unlikely to be an issue.
However, it must be noted that the player himself has expressed little interest in such a move at a relatively early stage of his career.
With that being said, taking into account Sancho’s dire situation at Old Trafford, he could be more likely
to swallow his pride and make the move to the Middle East.
The Italian giants are plotting to offer Sancho another route out of United, though it would initially only be a loan switch.
It is more than likely that Juventus would be unable to offer the Red Devils the kind of fee that would tempt
them into parting ways with Sancho permanently.
And to put into context how precarious Juventus’ financial position is, they will almost certainly need United
to subsidize a fair chunk of Sancho’s eyewatering £275,000 weekly wage. Representatives of Juventus
are believed to have already made contact with United officials.
It wouldn’t exactly be a fairytale return, but Sancho’s former side is rumored to be keen on bringing him back
to Signal Iduna Park just two years after leaving.
From the perspective of the German giants, it would represent a remarkable piece of business to sell Sancho for £73million
only to then have him back for far less so soon after. The wide forward is still only 23 years of age and has plenty to offer
if he can recapture the kind of form that saw his star shine at Dortmund.
The Ligue 1 champions aren’t exactly in need of a new winger and already have a plethora of star-studded attacking talent,
but are still thought to be interested in taking a chance on Sancho. There are rumored to have been internal discussions
between club officials and Luis Enrique over a move for the exiled United ace.
PSG are by no means leading the charge for Sancho’s signature,
but have the kind of funds that mean they can meet his wage demands with ease.
Leaving a struggling United with minimal game time to then join the French giants would mean Sancho
has landed on his feet and then some.
Napoli haven’t had the start they would have been hoping for so far this season and in turn sit fourth in Serie A,
10 points behind league leaders Inter Milan. However, if it is between them or rotting in the United academy canteen,
Sancho could be swayed.
He has already experienced what life is like abroad with Dortmund and by moving to Serie A,
Sancho would have played in three of Europe’s top five major leagues by the age of 25.
He is contracted to United until 2026, but with the Red Devils openly seeking to shift him off the books,
he is a realistic target for Napoli.Read More
