Stuck, stuck, stuck. Manchester United seem to be stuck between a rock and a hard place. Whether it’s Eric ten Haag or Jadon Sancho, 23, they want to get rid of him in the January transfer window, but they don’t want to sell him on the cheap. The ‘buyout clause’ is too high. However, other clubs are looking to capitalize on United’s predicament and snap up Sancho on the cheap. In other words, United have become the “bargain bin” of the transfer market.
“Van Gaal wants to get rid of Sancho, but the club is refusing to sell him in the January transfer window,” the Mirror reported on Jan. 16 (KST). This is a story about the reality of United’s predicament with Sancho.
At one point, Sancho was the club’s biggest hope. United signed him from Borussia Dortmund for £73 million two years ago, but he hasn’t lived up to their expectations. In particular, his relationship with Van Gaal has become a bit of a love-hate affair. After the loss to Arsenal in September, Van Gaal explained Sancho’s absence by saying that he hadn’t reached a certain level in training, and Sancho immediately took to social media to retort. Sancho called himself a “scapegoat” and claimed he was discriminated against by Ten Haag.
Ten Haag did not tolerate the protest and immediately removed Sancho from the first team. He was banned from training facilities and even the cafeteria. Refusing to apologize to Mourinho, Sancho was forced to stay with the United youth team. Van Gaal wants to sell Sancho in the January transfer window. For now, the Red Devils plan to follow Van Gaal’s lead. They are preparing to sell Sancho in the January transfer window. However, the Red Devils don’t want to sell the 23-year-old for less than £50 million, having signed him for £73 million just two years ago.레모나토토 도메인
However, as the details of the team’s situation have been revealed in local media, United have found themselves in a very unfavorable position in the transfer market. Every club that wants Sancho will try to lower the price. They’re taking advantage of the fact that United are in a position where they have to sell him. Juventus contacted United about a loan move for Sancho, but they wanted United to pay most of his £275,000,000 weekly wages. They were also unwilling to pay rent.
Saudi Arabian side Al Etihad were also interested in signing Sancho on loan during the summer transfer window, but crucially, they were unwilling to pay the £50 million fee for a permanent move at the end of the season. Negotiations broke down. Opposing clubs in the transfer market know that United will have to let Sancho go anyway because Van Gaal is so hardline. It’s almost as if United are officially recognized as a ‘no go’ or a ‘no go’.
