Erik ten Hag warned against proposed Jadon Sancho swap deal at Manchester United



| Last Updated:


Erik ten Hag has been warned against engaging in a potential swap deal involving Jadon Sancho at Manchester United.

Jadon Sancho is almost certainly set to leave Manchester United in the January transfer window after his spat with Erik ten Hag has left him banished from all first-team activities at the club.

After Sancho claimed that Ten Hag was scapegoating him for the side’s poor form, he was banned from the first team until he apologised to the Dutch manager for his words but has so far refused to do so.

He has not been involved in a matchday squad since a 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest, where he came off the bench to play 30 minutes.

Sancho has gathered the interest of both Juventus and Borussia Dortmund, and United have reportedly identified Juve winger Federico Chiesa as a replacement for Sancho, leading to many proposing that the Italian side and United sort out a swap deal.

Former United defender Paul Parker, however, has explained that he feels that Chiesa, despite being a good player, is too much of a risk for the club to bring in as a replacement for Sancho.

“I think Federico Chiesa is a good player and he is a good example of being a more old-fashioned winger that I´ve mentioned I would prefer to have at Man United,” Parker told BeMyBet.

“He has been playing a lot as a second striker this season for Juventus and he has been performing well. He has been injured quite a lot in his career so it’s good to see him performing regularly and I hope he can continue down that path.

“He has lost his way a bit the past seasons so I wouldn´t recommend Man United to take the risk and bring him in right now. He can be a big burden to have around if he gets injured again.

“I love his way of playing and if he can stay injury-free for a longer time, my answer could be different in a year or so but right now I wouldn’t bring him in.”
