Multiple sources, including Fabrizio Romano, report that Juventus has engaged in discussions with Manchester United regarding a significant January transfer for Jadon Sancho.
The winger has been absent from Man Utd’s lineup since a dispute with manager Erik ten Hag in early September, stemming from training-related issues. Despite training separately while awaiting an apology, Sancho, staunch in his position, is unlikely to concede wrongdoing.
According to Romano, there’s no reconciliation in sight between Sancho and Ten Hag, making a January departure highly probable.
The Telegraph hinted at a potential move to the Saudi Pro League, but given Sancho’s age (23) and career stage, he may opt to stay in Europe. This could open up new possibilities for the talented English international.
Juve’s sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli, recently visited London for transfer discussions with Premier League clubs, primarily focusing on finalizing a deal for Tottenham Hotspur’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
However, sources reveal that another priority was initiating talks for Jadon Sancho to move to Turin. Giuntoli met with senior Man Utd officials, gathering information to pursue Sancho’s transfer in a ‘concrete’ manner, as confirmed by journalist Romano.
As of now, Juventus expresses ‘concrete’ interest in Sancho but is inclined towards a loan deal with Man Utd covering part of his significant £250,000-a-week wage.
Negotiations haven’t started, as the Red Devils prefer waiting for permanent bids, given that Ten Hag has decided Sancho won’t play again.
To secure the transfer, Juventus must transform the proposed loan into a substantial permanent deal, a challenging task but one that could prove a fantastic signing for them.
Ten Hag, having shown his decisiveness with Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, would likely welcome Sancho leaving in January, easing his managerial concerns. Rumors also suggest that Sir Jim Ratcliffe aims to offload two other fallen stars from Man Utd in the upcoming transfer window.
