Jadon Sancho's high wages pose transfer hurdle for Manchester United

Posted : 15 December 2023

Jadon Sancho's substantial wages at Manchester United are reportedly hindering efforts to secure a transfer for the winger. Despite Erik ten Hag's desire for the 23-year-old to leave in January, United is struggling to find a club willing to meet Sancho's reported £350,000-a-week salary.


While former club Borussia Dortmund and Bundesliga rivals RB Leipzig have been linked, both are reportedly hesitant due to the high wage demands. With United also reluctant to loan Sancho to another Premier League club, there is a possibility he may remain training with the reserves for the second half of the season.


In another transfer update, Victor Osimhen, currently with Napoli, may be a potential target for Chelsea at the end of the season. The Nigeria international, who has agreed to a contract extension until 2026 with Napoli, has a release clause of around £112 million.


While this new agreement seemingly rules out a January move, Chelsea remains interested in Osimhen, who has reportedly expressed openness to a Stamford Bridge transfer. Napoli is said to be preparing for a possible departure, anticipating interest from major clubs willing to meet the release clause.


Brentford striker Ivan Toney is generating interest from top clubs, particularly Arsenal, as the January transfer window approaches. Toney, known for his impressive goal-scoring prowess, has a preference for a move to Arsenal, according to reports.


Fabrizio Romano, a reliable source in football transfers, suggests that Toney is genuinely excited about the possibility of joining Arsenal. The Gunners and Chelsea have been the frontrunners in the race for the England forward, with Toney potentially commanding a high transfer fee, possibly around £100 million.


These transfer speculations highlight the complexities faced by clubs in navigating player wages, release clauses, and player preferences as they seek to strengthen their squads during the transfer windows.
