According to Daily Express journalist Ryan Taylor, who spoke to GIVEMESPORT, Jadon Sancho’s out-of-sorts winger should be the subject of any offers that come in for Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, who has been’struggling’ to get the best out of the young player.
Sancho transferred from Borussia Dortmund to United for £73m in July 2021, but he has yet to regain the form that earned him two consecutive selections to the Bundesliga Team of the Season.
Sancho has played 24 times in the Premier League this season (19 starts), tallying five goals and two assists. His efforts, however, have frequently fallen short of the expectations – especially given that he is reportedly paid £350,000 every week.
Sancho failed to finish dribbles or create chances 12 times during United’s 2-0 victory against Wolves earlier this month. In the 82nd minute, ten Hag substituted Alejandro Garnacho for him, and the 18-year-old produced an outstanding stoppage time goal to secure the victory.
It would not be shocking to see Garnacho get the start in place of Sancho if Marcus Rashford, who is presently out with an illness, does indeed miss United’s next match against Chelsea.
What has Taylor stated on Jadon Sancho and Manchester United?
“I know they have Rashford who can play out wide, Garnacho and Antony as well,” Taylor said to GIVEMESPORT. You do wonder if anyone would offer to buy Sancho. Personally, I believe that if it did, it might be taken into consideration because Sancho hasn’t performed up to expectations and it’s obvious that Ten Hag is having trouble getting the best out of him.
“I still think he’s a terrific player, but right now he’s not displaying the potential we know he has. He needs a little more time to get a full preseason under his belt. He appears to be so far away from the England setup when you consider that he was a fixture for almost 18 months.
What should Jadon Sancho be used for at Manchester United?
With Rashford, Antony, and Garnacho returning to the team along with the outstanding Sunderland loanee Amad Diallo, it appears as though Sancho is in real risk of falling even further down the pecking order for playing time on either wing.
An option that would benefit both parties, a loan move may help Sancho regain some much-needed confidence and United correctly assess whether it is time to sell their once-valuable asset.
