Jadon Sancho Open to Extending Manchester United Journey
Soon, it will be reported that Sir Jim Ratcliffe has acquired 25% of the 20-time English champions. The British billionaire is anticipated to assume management of the Old Trafford football operations.
According to a recent source, Sancho might have an opportunity to save his Manchester United career under Ratcliffe, and the England international might gain from the shift in strategy.
The former Manchester City player is still considering leaving Old Trafford during the January transfer window, according to German journalist Florian Plettenberg.
Plettenberg says that ‘the most plausible possibility’ is a loan with a buyout option, and Juventus is rumoured to be leading the chase for his signature in the winter transfer window.
The journalist asserts that Sancho hasn’t given up on staying at Man United entirely and that, before making a decision, he would be willing to talk to Ratcliffe about his future.
Due to a falling out with head coach Erik ten Hag over not being named in the matchday squad against Arsenal, the 23-year-old has not played for the Red Devils since the end of August.
Sancho said in a social media post that he had been made “a scapegoat” and that Ten Hag had informed the media following the game at the beginning of September that he had been left out because of some subpar training performances.
Sancho is no longer shown with the first team, and it is thought that he has no relationship at all with Ten Hag.
Ten Hag’s future is currently the subject of conjecture, too, with predictions that he might lose his position if the club doesn’t win its next three games.
Man United’s next two Premier League games are against Chelsea and Bournemouth. Next week, they will play Bayern Munich in a crucial Champions League match.
The 1-0 loss against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park on Saturday seems to have been a very negative outcome both on and off the field, despite Ten Hag’s pleas for the team to support him.
Sancho signed a five-year contract to join the English powerhouses after leaving Borussia Dortmund in July 2021, but he hasn’t exactly been able to establish himself there.
Despite the fact that the forward has only managed 12 goals and 6 assists in 82 Red Devils games, it is said that several of his teammates are pressuring Ten Hag to start him again in the starting lineup.
