The transfer team at Juventus have made first contacts with their counterparts at Manchester United, over a potential January deal for Jadon Sancho. It is believed that the Englishman’s name is rising up the Bianconeri shortlist.
Fabrizio Romano, late on Monday, had provided a fresh insight into the future of the out-of-favour England international, stating that Juve had made initial contact for the player. La Stampa (via TMW) have now reported that Sancho’s name is gaining prominence in Turin.
The wide areas are of priority for Juve in January and it is stated that Sassuolo’s Domenico Berardi is also a potential target. But Sancho’s situation at United has made sure that his liking as a target has increased at Juve, with the Red Devils not ruling out the possibility of a loan move. If United do agree to let Sancho leave on loan, Juve would be in the front row to land him
Sancho has of course endured a tumultuous campaign to date, managing a paltry 77 minutes of Premier League football.
This comes largely owing to a public fallout with head coach with Erik ten Hag, which has seen the former Borussia Dortmund man condemned to the sidelines since all the way back in August.
