Jadon Sancho (23, Manchester United) is headed to Juventus.
“Sancho is likely to head to Juventus, rather than Barcelona or Borussia Dortmund, in next year’s January transfer window,” British outlet TeamTalk reported on Thursday.
Sancho joined United from Borussia Dortmund in 2021. The Red Devils had high hopes for him, spending £72 million on his signing.
He hasn’t lived up to his transfer fee. He didn’t have the sharp attacking touch that he showed at Dortmund. In his first season, he struggled mightily with five goals and three assists.
This season, the outlook was even bleaker. Sancho struggled to compete for a starting spot. Despite not having any major problems, he was never given a chance to start.
He even had a public falling out with head coach Erik ten Haag. “I trained very well this week,” said Sancho. I believe there are other reasons for my exclusion from this game,” he said in a bombshell statement.
His relationship with United took a turn for the worst. Not only did United exclude Sancho from first-team training, but they also banned him from using first-team facilities.
The conflict didn’t end there. Sancho even refused the club’s request to apologize to Van Gaal. Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, and others tried to convince him otherwise.
Sancho’s farewell to Man United is a foregone conclusion. According to the report, United have now made up their minds to let Sancho go, regardless of whether he apologizes or not.
Barcelona and Dortmund were initially mentioned as possible destinations. Both clubs are looking to bolster their attacking ranks and have reportedly already held talks with Sancho’s representatives.
The likelihood of a transfer happening is not 먹튀검증 high. “It’s not realistic for Sancho to head to Barcelona or Dortmund,” said German soccer expert Florian Platenberg.
However, he added: “It is certain that Sancho will leave United next January. His next destination will most likely be Juventus.”
The move is expected to be on loan. United are considering a six-month loan with an option for a full transfer. The club will cover a significant portion of Sancho’s weekly wages, which could be in the region of £300,000 depending on the circumstances.
