Tottenham Hotspur ‘seriously considering’ signing Manchester United outcast Jadon Sancho
In a surprise turn of events, Tottenham Hotspur have been named as potential suitors for Manchester United outcast Jadon Sancho.
The England international has been banished from Erik ten Hag’s squad since he effectively called the manager a liar after the Red Devils’ Premier League defeat against Arsenal earlier this season. He has yet to apologise and it seems his future lies away from the club.
According to Fichajes, Tottenham are ‘seriously considering’ making a move for the 23-year-old, who is valued at €35million. Life is going on without Sancho at Manchester United.
They aren’t really doing so well, considering they have already lost five games this season. But Antony, Marcus Rashford, Alejandro Garnacho, and Facundo Pellistri are Ten Hag’s go-to men down the flanks.
What to do?
Sancho’s stocks have arguably never been lower in recent years. He was a star at Borussia Dortmund, which is why Manchester United parted with a grand amount of £73million to sign him in 2021.
Spurs have a good chance to sign a very talented player here. Of course, the saga with Ten Hag shows that he can be a tough figure to manage in the dressing room, especially if he is not being played enough.
Could that be a problem here? Son Heung-min is our captain while Dejan Kulusevski is a star for us down that right flank. But injuries to Ivan Perisic and Manor Solomon have shown that we need some depth on the flanks.
Moreover, Richarlison can now be used as a No. 9 considering we didn’t sign a replacement for Harry Kane per se. Bryan Gil is yet to make an impression here while Perisic isn’t exactly getting any younger.
Sancho, 23, can be a great signing. Ange Postecoglou is a smart man-manager and if he does decide to pursue the former Manchester City youth player, then he would have, of course, done the necessary scouting and background checks to onboard the English winger.

The aforementioned fee also seems to be a decent one for a full England international who is yet to hit his peak here. There is hardly any reason why we shouldn’t move for him at that price.
