Juventus are facing an obstacle after Manchester United took a transfer stance over Jadon Sancho

Manchester United’s transfer stance on Jadon Sancho poses a hurdle for Juventus. During the January window, the Italian giant shows interest in signing Sancho as he experiences an uncertain future at United.

United banished Sancho from using all first-team facilities after his public spat with manager Erik ten Hag. Ten Hag criticized the 23-year-old’s training performances while responding to the journalist’s question about the player’s exclusion against Arsenal. The Red Devils lost the game 3-1 at Emirates Stadium earlier this season on 3rd September.

Sancho defended himself with a now-deleted post on platform X (formerly known as Twitter), accusing the manager of scapegoating him. The United manager wants an apology from the England international but he has refused to do so.

Daily Star (h/t Manchester Evening News) report that Juventus enquired about Sancho, but United’s stance could end their interest. The Red Devils are not keen on a loan deal or pay any of Sancho’s wages.

United signed Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for £73m during the 2021 summer transfer window. The England international joined the Manchester giant with huge expectations after having a sensation career at Dortmund.

Sancho made 137 appearances during his time with the German club while contributing 50 goals and 64 assists. In contrast, the 23-year-old has only contributed 12 goals and six assists in 82 matches for the Red Devils.

Both physical and mental issues played a key role in Sancho’s underwhelming performances at United. Many fans and experts have taken a divisive stance on the Sancho-Ten Hag spat. Some have defended Sancho and criticized the manager for publicizing the mental issues without any consent.

Ten Hag had a fallout with Cristiano Ronaldo during the first season under his United reign. On the other hand, many criticized the player for not apologizing and proving himself right by redeeming his United career.

Sancho‘s substantial wages, coupled with the high price tag, could present a significant obstacle despite the interest from numerous clubs. We think both the club and the player need to make undesirable financial compromises to secure a deal during January.
