Man Utd set to rival Liverpool for January target to replace Jadon Sancho
| Last updated
Manchester United have reportedly identified a replacement for Jadon Sancho as they eye a sensational move in January.
He was left out of his side's squad to face Arsenal earlier this month, with Ten Hag providing an update on the player following their Carabao Cup victory on Wednesday.
Former Red Devils captain Roy Keane named the only thing he believes the current dressing room 'wouldn't have tolerated' with Sancho as he shared his thoughts on the situation.
With the 23-year-old out of Ten Hag's plans, it appears the Dutch boss is eyeing a replacement in January ahead of the second half of the season.
The Italian international has starred at Juventus, impressing on his initial loan spell before making the switch permanent.
He has an impressive four goals in just six games in all competitions for Juve this season.
The 25-year-old also played a big part in Italy's Euro 2020 triumph as he enhanced his reputation during the tournament.
He was strongly linked with a transfer to Liverpool amid Al Ittihad's pursuit of Mohamed Salah. A £51 million transfer had been rumoured.
The Reds were reportedly 'evaluating the possibility' of signing Chiesa as a long-term replacement for Salah.
Man United, though, could swoop in and make a move for the star winger once the transfer window reopens.
