An unnamed Saudi Arabian club has made an offer for Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho, according to journalist Rudy Galetti.
The former Borussia Dortmund man has been making the headlines during the international break after conflicting manager Erik Ten Hag‘s reason for omitting Sancho from the matchday squad. He was not picked for his poor training form, but Sancho later rebuked this by labelling himself a scapegoat and dismissing the manager’s post-match comments after Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Arsenal.
The transfer window in England shut on 1 September, but the Saudi window is still wide open. This means that there may be time for Saudi clubs to complete one or two more marquee signings. Al-Ittihad had a lucrative £150m bid rejected by Liverpool for Mohamed Salah, and may go in one last time before their window shuts. It seems that Jadon Sancho could now be another name that could be targeted.
Whilst it would not be possible to recruit a replacement for Sancho until December now, there may be a possibility that the player could leave. The Red Devils have Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri waiting for their chance to play this season already. Sancho has not met the level that his £73million tag entails, and realistically the only way for United to recoup this kind of money will be from a Saudi club.
