Man United struggling to find a buyer for out-of-favour Jadon Sancho

Man United cannot seem to find a buyer for Jadon Sancho, who hasn’t been involved for the Reds since September.

We all know that bringing in new signings is important for Manchester United, as Erik ten hag looks to continue to overhaul this squad into one that fits his style of play.

However, what’s equally important is moving on from those players who aren’t performing/taking up a space in the squad while being paid massive money.

Jadon Sancho epitomises that more than none other. The £70m+ signing, who is on £250k-a-week+, hasn’t featured since September after a very public fallout with the manager.

As we approach the January transfer window, I just assumed the Red Devils would have no problem finding a potential buyer for the Englishman, due to his sheer talent alone.

Well, according to the usually reliable Football Insider, United are ‘struggling’ to find a landing spot for the 23-year-old. His ‘huge’ wages are a ‘massive’ hurdle in the current scenario.

The Saudi Pro League felt like one option, assuming the player was willing to go, though many of their clubs have already filled their foreign player quota, making it an unlikely destination.

In Europe, only so many clubs could afford to pay Sancho what he’s currently earning at the Theatre of Dreams. Even less clubs would be willing to give the winger such wages, given his shocking performances here in Manchester.

Sadly, this all points to Sancho going out on loan with United heavily subsidising his wages until his current deal expires. Obviously, that’s a less than ideal scenario at this stage, particularly as there’s zero chance he plays for the club again while Ten Hag is manager.
