Dean Jones lists out reasons why Tottenham Hotspur might not make move for Jadon Sancho
With the buzz around Jadon Sancho and his potential move to Tottenham Hotspur, the narrative has been punctuated by varied opinions and insights. From the perspective of Tottenham Hotspur, the possible acquisition of Sancho from Manchester United is laden with both opportunities and challenges.
Dean Jones cites Sancho’s high wages at Manchester United as a potential stumbling block. He emphasizes the need for Tottenham to negotiate a contract that aligns with their wage structure, which could be a delicate process.
Moreover, the terms of the loan and whether a permanent deal could be on the table are additional considerations that Spurs would have to navigate. It is not going to be easy for Tottenham to sign Jadon Sancho.
There are also question marks about the player’s attitude. He has yet to apologize to Erik ten Hag in the aftermath of the incident. The player seems more content to spend time away from the game than to try and reconcile with his manager.
Speaking about the situation on Give Me Sport, Dean Jones was not very optimistic about this deal happening for Tottenham
“I’d be amazed if Jadon Sancho does join Tottenham for various reasons. This is a player who has had extremely difficult times to manage on a personal level and has not been putting up good performances for a long time now. So from Tottenham’s point of view, what are your expectations of signing Sancho going to actually be? “
“Then, what are the terms of the loan going to be like? How long do you actually want this player for? Is it a six-month loan? Is it an 18 month loan? Is it that you’re going to try and do a permanent deal?”
No one here can deny Sancho’s obvious potential. The version of the Englishman that Borussia Dortmund got to witness was exceptionally special. The talented forward played excellent for the German club.
Situations determine success and it doesn’t feel like Sancho feels at home at Man United. He looks like he needs a fresh start and a charismatic leader like Ange Postecoglou might just help him with that.
Tottenham have no natural replacement for Dejan Kulusevski on the right side and signing the Englishman might not be such a bad thing. However, we must first try and loan him in and see how he performs.
