In the midst of a turbulent period for Jadon Sancho at Manchester United, reports have emerged concerning the club’s asking price for the talented winger.
Sancho, who has been training away from the United first team, expressed feeling like a “scapegoat” following his omission from the squad’s recent match against Arsenal, a claim that was met with counterarguments from the team’s manager, Erik ten Hag.
Ten Hag cited poor training performances as the reason behind Sancho’s exclusion, which the 23-year-old winger vehemently disputed on social media.
In response, Manchester United announced that Sancho would undergo a personal training program away from the first team until he issues an apology to Ten Hag. This move has further fueled speculation about Sancho’s future at the club.
A recent report in The Mirror suggests that Sancho’s exile from the first team extends to his inability to use any Carrington facilities, including the team dining room. This strict separation aims to prevent any disharmony within Ten Hag’s squad amid the ongoing controversy.
With the situation showing no immediate signs of resolution, Jadon Sancho has been tentatively linked with a potential transfer to the Saudi Pro League. Additionally, his former club, Borussia Dortmund, has emerged as a potential destination for the England international.
However, reports from German publication Bild suggest that Dortmund may have reservations about reacquiring Sancho. The Bundesliga side is reportedly concerned about the player’s off-field activities, which date back to his previous stint in Germany.
A primary concern centers around Sancho’s alleged lack of sleep due to late-night video gaming and computer use. Several Twitter accounts have claimed to spot Sancho playing EA FC 24 into the early hours of the morning.
Furthermore, the report indicates that the player has a history of arriving late to training sessions. Accusations regarding Sancho’s punctuality have surfaced in the past, and medical expert Ben Dinnery, who runs the Premier Injuries site, previously mentioned hearing “whispers” about Sancho’s tardiness during his time at United.
Dortmund’s senior figures reportedly fear that Sancho’s discipline issues could unsettle the current squad if he were to return to the club. Another potential obstacle in the way of a transfer would be the fee involved.
According to Bild, Manchester United is inclined to sell Sancho rather than loan him and has set an asking price of €60 million (£52 million) for the winger’s services.
