Transfer news expert Fabrizio Romano recently shared insights on Manchester United’s Scott McTominay and Jadon Sancho, as the January transfer window approaches.
Discussing on the Debrief podcast, Romano indicated that McTominay has been considered for a potential exit from Manchester United, but only if the right offer is presented.
In the past summer, Manchester United had the opportunity to transfer the Scotland international following a bid from West Ham, but the club found the offer inadequate.
Notably, McTominay’s impressive recent performance against Brentford could influence the January decisions, though Romano anticipates the situation to remain relatively unchanged.
Romano elaborated: “Erik ten Hag, when discussing outgoing players in the summer, had McTominay’s name on the potential list, given the right proposal. Manchester United wasn’t swayed by West Ham’s bid. They value McTominay’s professionalism and dedication, so without a significant proposal, they might retain him for the season.”
On Jadon Sancho’s situation, there’s been speculation around his future, especially since he hasn’t apologized to Manchester United’s manager, Erik ten Hag.
Romano highlighted that while rumors circulate about Italian clubs showing interest, there’s currently no tangible evidence of this. However, he hinted at a possible move to the Bundesliga for Sancho.
Romano stated: “I’ve been looking into Juventus and Roma’s interest, but as of now, they aren’t in need of someone like Sancho.
The focus should be on German clubs, considering Sancho’s success in the Bundesliga.
Nothing is confirmed by Borussia Dortmund yet, and their second-half season competitions could be a determining factor.”
In conclusion, Sancho’s future at Manchester United hinges significantly on whether he chooses to apologize.
If not, the upcoming January window might become imperative for his career’s next chapter.
