Manchester United are reportedly looking to sign a former Premier League forward as a potential replacement of Jadon Sancho at Old Trafford. They are eyeing at some of the world class wingers for Sancho’s replacement at United.
Sancho leaving United:
Sancho has not played a single game this month after Ten Hag criticised his performances in training. He then said that he has “been a scapegoat for a long time” on twitter. The club was hoping to have a resolution during the international break to pacify the situation. However, neither Sancho nor Ten Hag appear to give up, which resulting in rumors of a January exit.
It appears as if a move away early in 2024 could be on the cards with those at Old Trafford expecting to receive offers for the player, and the search for Sancho’s replacement has already been started in full swing.
Sancho’s replacement at United:
According to one Spanish report in the last 48 hours, Man United are looking at three wingers to come in for Sancho, one of which is Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry. He has strongly emerged as an option alongside Juventus’ extremely talented right winger Federico Chiesa. Athletic Club’s Nico Williams is also on the option list.
Reports also say that, Gnabry’s asking price is set at €60m (£51.8m).
Gnabry’s on field abilities:
He already has Premier League experience with Arsenal and West Brom but has now improved pretty much with Bayern. He played 224 games in all competitions, scoring 82 times and registering 51 assists.
Gnabry has caught the eye of Man United legend Rio Ferdinand in recent years, over Gnabry’s rise after leaving the Emirates, he said:
“His stats are phenomenal. He’s sitting in the top level, world class. He’s come to Germany and set the place on fire, he was absolutely stunning tonight. His decision making has been extraordinary.
“I’ll go as far as to say he’s one of the most improved players in football at the moment. I don’t think anyone’s upwards trajectory is as sharp as his.
“From where he was, being discarded by Arsenal and West Brom, to where he is now. Wow.”
