Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho. Jadon Sancho, a winger for Manchester United, has been linked to Tottenham Hotspur. Journalist Dean Jones has speculated that Ange Postecoglou’s team may sign the England international in an interview with GIVEMESPORT.

Sancho is having a difficult time at Manchester United right now.

According to the BBC, Sancho moved to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund almost two years ago for a sum of £73 million. Given the performances he was turning in the Bundesliga, it wasn’t surprising to see United reach into their pocket to generate the hefty sum of money to bring him back to England.

Sancho is currently not even a member of the senior squad, having so far fallen short of expectations due to his poor performance. After Erik ten Hag left him out of the starting lineup against Arsenal earlier in the season, Sancho publicly alleged that he was being used as a scapegoat by United. The Dutch manager then implied in a news conference that the English winger needed to work more on the practice field.

Sancho and Ten Hag had a falling out, and it appears that the former Manchester City player will be leaving. According to reports, Tottenham is reportedly mulling a move during the January transfer window, with Postecoglou reportedly eyeing him as their main goal. The North London team is reportedly prepared to pay United the £30 million they are requesting.

The coaching staff at Old Trafford isn’t thrilled with Sancho, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, which may be a major worry for Spurs. The peace and spirit at Hotspur Way seem to be at their highest point in many years, thanks to Postecoglou’s ability to assemble a team of players who share his vision.

Dean Jones’s report
Sancho would be a risky addition for Spurs and Postecoglou, but he would be a wise choice for the north London team if the Australian manager can rekindle the kind of play he did while at Borussia Dortmund. Although he isn’t happy at United, there’s a good reason the Red Devils made a large financial investment in the £275k-per-week player. But there’s no assurance that Sancho will begin to produce in a different setting.

Jones has suggested that there are various factors that Spurs have to consider before signing Sancho and he would be amazed if it was to happen. The journalist adds that the club have to try and figure out whether Sancho could fit into their wage structure, which certainly won’t be easy. Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jones said…

“I’d be amazed if Jadon Sancho does join Tottenham for various reasons. First and foremost, I think you would have to look at the PR angle of signing him. This is a player who has had extremely difficult times to manage on a personal level and has not been putting up good performances for a long time now. So from Tottenham’s point of view, what are your expectations of signing Sancho going to actually be? Plus the fact that he’s currently on huge wages at Man Utd which you’ve got to negotiate around and try and figure out how he will fit within your pay structure. Then, what are the terms of the loan going to be like? How long do you actually want this player for? Is it a six-month loan? Is it an 18 month loan? Is it that you’re going to try and do a permanent deal?”

Ange Postecoglou wants to bolster his offensive lineup.
The North London club still hasn’t found a suitable offensive substitute for Harry Kane. Brennan Johnson was acquired by Spurs during the summer transfer window, but he is not a pure striker. Johnson formerly played for Nottingham Forest. It’s possible that Postecoglou and his hiring staff are looking to add a new number nine.

According to Sky Sports, Tottenham is reportedly mulling a move for Brighton & Hove Albion striker Evan Ferguson; however, the Republic of Ireland international may cost up to £100 million. With Son Heung-min and Richarlison as possibilities in the middle, writer Jones previously told GIVEMESPORT that Spurs might wait until the summer before making a move for a new forward during the January transfer window.
