Man Utd player now worth £85m less than three years ago after dramatic decline

Man Utd player now worth £85m less than three years ago after dramatic decline

It's a sad decline.

Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho has seen his value fall by £86million in the past few years.

Sancho is currently exiled at Old Trafford after inciting a public feud with manager Erik ten Hag in the wake of the club’s 3-1 defeat to Arsenal on September 3rd.

After the loss, Ten Hag said the England international had been absent from the United squad due to his standard of training - a claim which Sancho vehemently refuted in a now-deleted social media post.

Sancho was subsequently removed from the first-team squad. Indeed, for the past five weeks, the player has been on an individual training programme using the academy facilities at Carrington.

Safeguarding rules mean Sancho must be on his own in the changing room and lock the door before getting undressed, given the building houses minors. United maintain Sancho would need to apologise to Ten Hag for a resolution to be reached.

The feud is a marker of the stark decline in Sancho’s career trajectory.

At Borussia Dortmund, his performances attracted the attention of the world’s biggest clubs. Sancho scored 50 goals and set up some 64 others in 137 games for the Bundesliga club, with the vast majority of those numbers having been recorded when the winger was still a teenager.

At one stage, the 23-year-old featured more prominently in England manager Gareth Southgate’s thoughts than Phil Foden, his former team-mate from Manchester City’s youth side.

Signed by United for £73million in 2021, Sancho became the ninth most expensive player in Premier League history, and was described by then-manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a signing that “epitomises the type of player I want to bring to the club”.

Two years on Sancho appears to be nearing the exit door at Old Trafford with Sky Sports having claimed clubs from Serie A, Bundesliga, and Turkey's Super Lig are all exploring the possibility of loaning him on a short-term deal in January.

Moreover, should he leave permanently United would struggle to recoup the £73million they paid for the attacker.

Indeed, as per Transfernarkt, Sancho is now worth just €32million (£27million). That figure is down from the €130million (£113million) the player was valued at in 2020, when he was at the peak of his powers with Dortmund.
