Jadon Sancho, a winger for Manchester United, caught Aston Villa’s late attention during the most recent transfer window.

Jadon Sancho is rumored to have been a player Chelsea was considering during the open transfer market, but it also appears that Aston Villa was interested in the 23-year-old.

Ben Jacobs reported that Aston Villa’s interest in Jadon Sancho arose at the end of the summer transfer window, whereas Tottenham Hotspots considered signing him earlier during the window.

Also, The manager, Erik ten Hag, was not planning to sell the English international, which made it seem difficult for the Midlands club to reach an agreement with the team, according to the journalist.

The Daily Mail claims that Chelsea thought about signing Sancho for Stamford Bridge but ultimately decided to sign Cole Palmer from Manchester City.

Although Aston Villa were not able to add Sancho to their squad in the end, like Chelsea, they were still able to reinforce their attack after recruiting Moussa Diaby and Nicolo Zaniolo.

Jadon Sancho could become available.

While Erik Ten Hag may have hesitated to let go of Jadon Sancho during this summer transfer window, there is still a possibility of a different outcome in the next transfer window, which could potentially be beneficial for Aston Villa.

There seems to be a certain issue between the manager of the Red Devils, i.e., Manchester United, and Jadon Sancho at this moment, following a response from the former Borussia Dortmund star to his coach’s statement regarding his lackluster training performance.

“I won’t allow people to conduct entirely false statements against me. I have conducted myself very well in training this week,” Jadon Sancho, who was bought by Manchester United for £73 million, tweeted as a response to Ten Hag’s assertion.

If these issues aren’t resolved, there’s a high possibility that Aston Villa could consider pursuing Sancho next year.

Tottenham Hotspur wanted Jadon Sancho this summer.

Sancho might be departing from Manchester United in the near future, and he is bound to attract a lot of attention in the market.

The 23-year-old English forward hasn’t quite lived up to expectations at Manchester United, but 50 goals and 64 assists in 137 Borussia Dortmund may still lead some managers to believe they can help Sancho regain his form. One of the clubs likely to be taking the issue into consideration is Tottenham Hotspur, which expressed interest over the summer.

The Daily Star reported that Tottenham Hotspurs considered signing Jadon Sancho in June.

Only a few days later, The Times reported that Tottenham had expressed interest in signing Sancho, and the Daily Mail suggested that a sum of £45 million might be necessary. The Camberwell-born winger would have had a way out of Old Trafford and an opportunity to go back to London.

Ten Hag doesn’t appear to like Sancho, and a new beginning somewhere else might have allowed him to find his form again in time for the EURO 2024. A departure in January wouldn’t come as a surprise because it currently seems like Ten Hag has no immediate intentions to use Jadon Sancho.

Tottenham may think about renewing their interest, but they recently completed a transfer of Brennan Johnson, another winger. Even though Tottenham has recently focused on signing homegrown players, Sancho’s option with the club currently appears to be tricky.

Ivan Perisic’s departure may determine whether Tottenham’s interest returns, but even then, Sancho’s future is still very much uncertain.
