Son Heung-min’s rejection was a relief, but it’s a different story for Xherdan Shaqiri. For Tottenham, it’s a ‘tempting offer’.
His move to Saudi Arabia is still on the table. The Telegraph reported on July 13 that “the Saudi league has decided that Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah will be difficult to sign. Clubs are now targeting Jadon Sancho and Xherdan Shaqiri.레모나토토
Tottenham snapped up the Frenchman in the summer transfer window last year. The transfer fee was £60 million.
Expectations were high for the Brazil international. However, he was labeled as a ‘cheat’.
In his first season, he only managed three goals and three assists. This season, he was expected to fill the void left by Harry Kane’s departure to Bayern Munich, but he was not given the chance.
He lost the top spot to Son Heung-min. He has one goal and three assists this season. He was recently sidelined by groin surgery.
Al Ittihad are reportedly interested in signing him. “Tottenham could decide to move on from the player, whose £60 million price tag is out of reach,” according to The Sun in England.
United’s Sancho is being eyed by Al Ittifa, with Steven Gerrard at the helm. Change is inevitable for him.
Sancho was dropped from the squad after United’s 3-1 defeat to Arsenal on September 4. He crossed the bridge of no return when he responded to manager Eric ten Haag’s criticism with a ‘scapegoat’.
What came back was discipline. Sancho was banned from all first-team facilities. Ten Hagg is demanding a public apology from Sancho in front of the first-team squad, but he is refusing.
The Englishman made his professional debut with Dortmund in the German Bundesliga before moving to United in July 2021 for a fee of £73 million. However, he has been on the fringes and is currently ‘closed for business’.
