Man City and Chelsea offered chance to complete signing of £40m-rated Man United star



Man City and Chelsea offered chance to complete signing of £40m-rated Man United star

Green light has been given to Manchester City to recruit Jadon Sancho on a reduced fee from fierce rivals Manchester United.

TeamTalk claims that Sir Jim Ratcliffe has given Man City the opportunity to sign Sancho from Man United this summer

Chelsea also reportedly have been offered the chance to sign Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho, but have turned the opportunity down, according to Simon Phillips.

The England international has struggled for playing time at Man Utd after also failing to make enough of an impact at Old Trafford, but he impressed on loan at Borussia Dortmund in the second half of last season.

It’s not clear what the future holds for Sancho now, as one imagines he could do well to stay at Dortmund, except that the deal might be too expensive for the Bundesliga giants.

Chelsea probably have a bit more in the way of money to spend, so could perhaps afford to take a gamble on Sancho, but it seems they have no interest in doing so.

Sancho, one of Europe’s most promising young prospects, has failed to regain the form that made him stand out since his £73 million transfer from Borussia Dortmund in 2021.

After falling out with Man United manager Erik ten Hag, the English winger was sent on loan to Borussia Dortmund, his former club.

He has managed to impress during his time in Germany and helped his team to reach the Champions League final in the 2023-24 season.

However, the Red Devils are looking to permanently offload the player, who they feel has no future at the club.

With ten Hag’s future now sorted and Man United making the decision to keep him, it is highly likely that Sancho will never play for the Red Devils again.

Man City are reportedly one of four teams—the other three being Arsenal, Barcelona, and Chelsea—that have been contacted by United to submit a proposal for Sancho.

Man United are ready to let him leave the club for a fee of £40m, accepting that they will face a loss on their investment in the talented young player.

The winger has a connection to Man City in the past as he left the Etihad Stadium at a young age to join Borussia Dortmund, where he gained prominence.

They have enough options in the wide areas and the players they have suit the football philosophy of Pep Guardiola.

Sancho is the kind of player who likes to take on his man and rely on individual brilliance, something that is not promoted at Man City.

The ship has sailed for Sancho to have a chance to prove himself at the Etihad Stadium and a move back to Dortmund for him makes much more sense, a place where he has felt comfortable playing his football
