Man Utd send scouts to watch dream Jadon Sancho replacement, this would be some signing
| Last updated
Manchester United have sent scouts to watch a dream replacement for Jadon Sancho but face competition from a number of sides.
Sancho has found himself surplus to requirements at United after a public response to Erik ten Hag's claim that he was left out of the squad against Arsenal in September for not applying himself in training.
He has continually been overlooked since then and looks nailed on to move in the January window after a late switch to the Saudi Pro League fell through.
But a new report claims United are keeping tabs on Napoli sensation Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.
Kvaratskhelia had a breakthrough season last season, helping Napoli to a first Serie A title in 33 years by scoring notching 12 goals and 10 assists.
Luciano Spalletti left to take the Italy job, with Rudi Garcia replacing him at the helm at the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Garcia was dismissed and replaced by the returning Walter Mazzarri but Kvaratskhelia has still impressed with three goals and four assists in 11 games and now a queue of clubs are monitoring his situation.
Graeme Bailey of 90 Min claims that United, Manchester City, Newcastle and Chelsea all had scouts watching him in action for Georgia against Spain on Sunday.
Kvaratskhelia found the net, equalising for his country in the first half.
A number of high-profile players were on display but it's said that much of the attention was on Kvaratskhelia.
Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Barcelona have all shown interest.
The former Rubin Kazan man is said to be close to agreeing a new contract with Napoli as per Nicolo Schira.
His salary is expected to be €4 million euros per year, with the deal running through until 2028.
