AS Roma boss, Jose Mourinho, is reportedly considering a move for an attacker who has become an outcast at Manchester United.
Jadon Sancho’s time at Manchester United has taken a nosedive, with the winger conspicuously absent from the squad since August 26.
United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, has cited perceived subpar performances in training as the reason behind Sancho’s exclusion. This tension between player and manager escalated when Sancho publicly disputed Ten Hag’s assessment via social media.
The public spat between Sancho and Ten Hag has strained their working relationship, making it increasingly unlikely that Sancho will feature for Manchester United again unless he offers an apology. This marks a stark contrast to the high expectations that accompanied Sancho’s £73 million transfer to the club in 2021.
Reports are now circulating that clubs in Saudi Arabia have expressed interest in signing the talented winger. However, according to Sport Witness, AS Roma, led by the experienced Jose Mourinho, has emerged as a potential destination for Sancho.
Sancho has reportedly requested a January transfer and seems uninterested in seeking reconciliation with Ten Hag. One notable challenge for Roma is Sancho’s substantial weekly salary of £250,000.
Manchester United’s willingness to engage in negotiations with Saudi club Al-Ettifaq, which includes an obligation to buy, suggests that the club may be open to parting ways with Sancho in January if his attitude and approach remain unchanged.
Ultimately, this situation may necessitate a shift in either Ten Hag’s management style or Sancho’s adaptation to the Ten Hag way. Should neither of these adjustments occur, a January transfer for Sancho appears increasingly likely.
