Tottenham Hotspur linked with £50 million move for Jadon Sancho

Tottenham Hotspur are planning a summer swoop for Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho, according to a new report.

The Red Devils star moved to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund back in 2021 for £73 million but has failed to live up to expectations so far, struggling with both fitness and form.

It has raised questions over his future at United, with the player also losing his place in the most recent England squad.

Several clubs are monitoring the availability of the 23-year-old, and Spurs are ready to pay £50m for his services, according to the Daily Star.

The north London side failed to qualify for Europe last season and newly-appointed boss Ange Postecoglou is looking to improve his options.

The Englishman would be a great addition, and with continued uncertainty over a potential takeover at United, Erik ten Hag needs to raise cash in order to spend big money himself this summer.

However, the Red Devils are said to be looking for something closer to the fee they originally paid for Sancho which could stall any negotiations.

With rumours continuing to swirl regarding Harry Kane’s future at Spurs, United could perhaps offer Sancho as part of a deal for the star forward.

There is also said to be an option to send him back to his former club Dortmund but they are only winning to do a loan deal, which United aren’t keen on.

Sancho has been given a number of opportunities to impress Ten Hag but has not yet been able to hit his previous heights.

He registered just three assists in 26 league games last season and was sent to the Netherlands midway through the campaign to improve 'physically and mentally'.

United will be looking to improve on their successes in Ten Hag’s first season, which saw them lift the Carabao Cup and qualify for the Champions League.

But, if they want to get any closer to rivals Manchester City, they must start to cash in on players who are failing to make a big impact. Whether Sancho stays or not remains to be seen.
