Manchester United cause Juventus to back out of Jadon Sancho transfer



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have caused Juventus to back out of a potential deal to transfer Jadon Sancho in January.

Jadon Sancho is likely to never play for Manchester United again after Erik ten Hag and the player were involved in a spat, with the winger claiming Ten Hag was scapegoating him for poor performances back in September.

It is said that the Dutch manager is still happy to welcome Sancho back into the squad as long as he apologises for his words, but no apology has been forthcoming, and Sancho looks to be heading out of Old Trafford in January.

Two clubs have been circling the situation and monitoring the chance for a potential deal, with Juventus and his former club Borussia Dortmund both interested, but United have now caused the former to back out of talks due to demanding too much for the player’s services.

This is according to Tuttosport, who explains that Sancho is simply too expensive for the 26-time Serie A champions, who are operating with a low budget for the coming window.

Previous reports state that United would be looking for a fee between £45-50 million, and considering that Sancho has not played football since August and has failed to make much of an impact during his time at Old Trafford, it is a lot of money to put on the line for a player who may not guarantee success.

United have been linked with Juventus winger Federico Chiesa on a number of occasions in the last few months, with some proposing that a swap deal between the clubs for the pair could be an ideal solution for both parties.

But with Chiesa having played 14 times this season, he plays a significant role in Massimiliano Allegri’s side, and the club are unlikely to be willing to part ways for the winger.
