Reliable Journalist Says Chelsea Could Raid United For £73M Player
The generally trustworthy journalist reports that the player’s “connections to London” indicate that he would be open to a move to Stamford Bridge.
Sancho has no future at Manchester United following a public fight with boss Erik Ten Hag about his training performance.
After accusing the Dutchman of making him a “scapegoat” on Twitter, the footballer was invited to apologise to the United manager in person.
Sancho, on the other hand, refused to make apologies, and he has been practising with the club’s young squad ever since, knowing that he would be sold or sent out at the first chance.
According to many reports, Sancho wishes to remain in England.
While Whitwell appears to imply that the England international is open to joining another Premier League club, Sky Germany writer Florian Plettenberg has speculated that the £73 million United player is more likely to transfer overseas.
Juventus are said to be interested in signing Sancho, but there are reservations over whether the Serie A team has the cash to satisfy United’s demands.
Will Manchester United look for a successor for Sancho?
There have been reports that Manchester United are interested in Federico Chiesa, which might aid discussions with Juventus if a potential swap deal with Sancho can be worked out.
Jamie Bynoe-Gittens of Borussia Dortmund has also been suggested as a possible target, albeit his lack of experience might work against him.
A deal for Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry has also been mooted, although that speculation has been denied by German media sources.
