Manchester United flop Jadon Sancho continues to be linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
Sancho has struggled to replicate his form from Borussia Dortmund in the Premier League since joining Manchester United for £73m.
Under Erik ten Hag he has failed become a regular starter as well and the relationship between him and the manager has now completely fallen apart.
This happened after Erik ten Hag told the media that Sancho was dropped for the Arsenal game because of his poor training performance.
The former Dortmund player immediately called his manager out on his social media account suggesting that the Dutchman is lying.
After the fallout, he is now expected to be sold in January on a reduced price. As per Spanish outlet Fichajes, Sancho is valued at around €35 million and Tottenham are ‘seriously considering’ a move for him.
While Tottenham were linked with him in the summer, transfer insider Dean Jones previously claimed that Spurs may not be pursuing him in January unless he is available on an ‘easy loan’ or a ‘really cheap deal’.
And he has now told GiveMeSport that there are various factors Spurs need to consider before making a decision to sign Sancho in January. This includes his wage structure as well as the PR side to it.
Jones also highlighted several factors that Tottenham would need to consider before signing Sancho, including wage structure and the public relations aspect.
Sancho’s high wages at Manchester United could pose challenges in negotiating a suitable contract with Tottenham.
The terms of the potential loan, such as duration and whether a permanent deal is an option, are additional factors for consideration.
“I’d be amazed if Jadon Sancho does join Tottenham for various reasons. First and foremost, I think you would have to look at the PR angle of signing him.”
“This is a player who has had extremely difficult times to manage on a personal level and has not been putting up good performances for a long time now.”
“So from Tottenham’s point of view, what are your expectations of signing Sancho going to actually be? Plus the fact that he’s currently on huge wages at Man Utd which you’ve got to negotiate around and try and figure out how he will fit within your pay structure.”
“Then, what are the terms of the loan going to be like? How long do you actually want this player for? Is it a six-month loan? Is it an 18 month loan? Is it that you’re going to try and do a permanent deal?”
There is no doubt about Sancho’s quality and he consistently displayed that during his time at Borussia Dortmund.
But he has failed to replicate the same form at Manchester United. Whether he will be able to revive his form under Spurs is a big question mark. Whether Spurs sign him or not remains to be seen.
