Tottenham could be looking to replace Son Heung-min (30) with Jadon Sancho (23-Man United).
“Tottenham are looking to spend £50 million (approx. KRW 81 billion) to sign Manchester United striker Sancho,” said the UK’s ‘Daily Mail’ on Nov. 11. “Sancho was a top performer at Dortmund in the German Bundesliga before moving to United. However, he has been inconsistent under three different managers at United. He has had his ups and downs since returning from injury.”
Sancho is an England international striker. He has been capped at every age group from the U16s to the U19s. At the age of 18, he was called up by Gareth Southgate to make his A-match debut for England. He has 23 caps and three goals to his name.
Sancho is a product of the Manchester City Youth Academy in the English Premier League (EPL). Contrary to expectations, he made his professional debut with Dortmund in Germany. In three seasons with Dortmund, Sancho scored 38 goals in 104 appearances.
Sancho joined United in the summer of 2021 after being courted by a number of big clubs. The transfer fee paid by United to Dortmund was a whopping £73 million. The astronomical price tag didn’t pay off for United. In his two seasons at United, Sancho scored 12 goals and provided six assists in 79 appearances.
Tottenham are planning to take Sancho, who has become a “pawn” at United, and turn him into a first-team regular. Tottenham’s new manager, Anze Postecoglou, has vowed to rebuild. As part of this, the 23-year-old striker has been identified as a target.
If Sancho joins Spurs, he’ll face competition from Son Heung-min. Son, who has scored double-digit attacking points in seven consecutive seasons, is now in his 30s. He was at the peak of his powers in 2021-22, leading the Premier League in scoring, but this season has been plagued by injuries.
Of course, Son and Sancho could coexist. Sancho can play on the left flank, as well as the center and right flanks. In the new season, we could see Son and Sancho on the same team. 스포츠토토
