Man Utd have already found their Jadon Sancho replacement but face competition from Liverpool

Man Utd have already found their Jadon Sancho replacement but face competition from Liverpool

Jadon Sancho has been loaned out to Borussia Dortmund for the remainder of the 23/24 season

Manchester United have reportedly found their replacement for Jadon Sancho already.

Back in 2021, the Old Trafford club spent a reported £73 million to lure Sancho away from German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.

However, the winger failed to reproduce the kind of football he showed during his time in Germany and soon fell down the pecking order at United.

This season, Sancho had a public spat with manager Erik ten Hag, which led to the 23-year-old being exiled from the first team fold.

It was confirmed on Thursday afternoon that Sancho had completed a loan move back to his former club Dortmund for the remainder of the 23/24 season.

With Sancho’s future at United in doubt, the Red Devils have reportedly started looking for a replacement.

According to SportsLens journalist Dean Jones, United are interested in bringing in Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise.

It has been claimed that the club see the Frenchman as the perfect profile fit amid concerns over Antony’s recent form and Sancho’s future.

However, it was reported that United will face competition from the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool for Olise’s signature.

In the summer transfer window, Olise was reportedly close to joining Chelsea after the Stamford Bridge club triggered a £35 million release clause in his contract.


However, the French winger made a sensational U-turn and ended up signing a new contract with Palace until 2027.

Last week, Palace boss Roy Hodgson revealed Olise had suffered a hamstring injury.

He said: “We’ll have to nurse him through and hope he gets back as soon as possible. For how long is he out? I can’t answer that one I’m afraid.

“It is another little setback that I’m sure he and we would not have liked. After his last two performances, which were so good, we were hoping he’d be stepping out tomorrow and treating us again to another great exhibition of football.”

Hodgson added: “He’s a bit upset that that can’t happen and as are we, but let’s not put too much of a dampener on what’s going to happen going forward. There’s plenty of games left to play in this season, we’ve got another 18 league matches to play, and we’re hoping he’s going to be there to help us.”
