From Munich to Dortmund, he’s a hot commodity.
A player’s value usually plummets when they ‘protest’ to their manager, as they worry that they could be a ‘bomb’ at any team. However, Manchester United star Jadon Sancho has seen his stock rise. This is because the big German clubs are using the protest as an opportunity to make a move for him.
Sancho’s ‘parent club’ Dortmund are looking to bring him back in the January transfer window.
Sancho has been under fire recently for his protest against coach Erik ten Haag. The Dutchman was left out of the squad against Arsenal because he wasn”t ready in training. The player took to social media to say that he was ready and that the coaching staff wasn”t being fair.
An uproar ensued. United immediately tried to move Sancho to Saudi Arabia, but the deal fell through due to the lack of an outright transfer option. Local theories suggested that Van Gaal had been disappointed early on with Sancho, who was away on personal matters last season, and that his United teammates were unsympathetic to his poor behavior on and off the field. The general consensus is that Sancho will leave United in the near future.
In the meantime, German clubs are lining up. And for good reason. Sancho rose to prominence at a young age at Dortmund before joining United. He joined Dortmund as a teenager and quickly established himself in the first team, scoring 114 goals in 137 appearances. Europe’s big clubs weren’t going to let Sancho sit idly by. Two years ago, Manchester United emerged victorious in a fierce battle for Sancho’s signature. The transfer fee alone was £73 million.
But since joining United, Sancho has been a mediocre player. 12 goals and 6 assists in 82 games. An abysmal performance. His explosive form in Germany was nowhere to be seen, and he fell out of favor with Van Gaal last season when he took a lengthy leave of absence from the team, citing personal reasons.
British outlet The Sun is reporting that Dortmund are preparing to make a bid for Sancho, whose future at United is in question marks. The plan is to make a deal in the January transfer window.
In fact, Dortmund reportedly tried to sign Sancho on loan in secret during last winter’s transfer window. The deal fell through due to United’s objections, but they’ve been keeping a close eye on Sancho’s situation. 먹튀검증
It’s not just Dortmund. German giants Bayern Munich have also been linked with a move for Sancho since the news broke. The Bavarians were convinced that while he was struggling in the Premier League, he would explode when he returned to the Bundesliga. The Bavarians know Sancho well from his time at Dortmund.
However, United are planning to pass on a significant portion of his £300,000-a-week wages to his new club, which could be a major factor in the deal.
