AS Roma are heavily interested in signing Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho in the January transfer window, as per Italian media outlet Il Romanista.
The 23-year-old is facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford and he is currently not training with the first-team squad.
Erik ten Hag wasn’t impressed with Sancho’s training and discipline and axed him completely from the matchday squad against Arsenal.
Sancho vented his frustration on X (formerly Twitter) and said the allegations raised against him are completely untrue, and that he is being made a scapegoat by his manager.
The public fallout didn’t go well with the club, and he was suspended as a result. The report suggests that Sancho is not keen to find an amicable solution to his situation and he wants to move out in January.
Jose Mourinho wants Sancho at all costs but his £350k-per-week wages could prove to be a major stumbling block for the Serie A outfit.
Is Sancho set for exit?
Sancho joined Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund with loads of promise, but it’s fair to say that he hasn’t been able to justify his massive £73m pricetag.
During the past two seasons, the England international has made 58 Premier League appearances, managing nine goals and six assists. In comparison, he scored 38 goals and registered 51 assists during his time in Germany.
If he is not in Ten Hag’s immediate plans, it’s better to sell him. He is a highly talented player and the only way he can resurrect his future at Old Trafford is by issuing a face-to-face apology.
With Sancho showing no signs of remorse, it becomes untenable for the Dutchman to pick him in the side. However, Roma can’t meet his wages, and a potential loan move can only take place in January if United agree to pay a part of his salary.
