Jadon Sancho Next Club Odds: Juventus Tipped But Saudi Clubs Sniffing Around
Jadon Sancho has become the forgotten man at Manchester United and the best betting sites expect him to seek pastures new in the upcoming transfer window.
Banished from the first-team squad after a dispute with Erik ten Hag, Sancho has yet to play for United since the 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest in August.
The England international has made only three appearances for the club this season and there appears to be no way back for him for as long as Ten Hag remains in charge at Old Trafford.
Where might Sancho end up if he does change clubs in January?
Let’s explore the odds offered by football betting sites, before taking a closer look at some of the potential candidates for his signature.
Juventus And Saudi Arabia Are Likeliest Destinations
Juventus have been linked with a January swoop for Sancho, who joined Manchester United in a deal worth £73m in 2021.
The Red Devils will not be able to recoup all of that money, but Juve are reportedly ready to submit an opening offer for the Old Trafford outcast.
The Bianconeri would offer Sancho the chance to resume his career at another European giant, albeit one that is not in the Champions League this season.
As such, Juventus are the 4/1 favourites in this race.
A switch to Saudi Arabia, priced at 5/1, cannot be ruled out either for the England international.
Pro League clubs have plenty of cash to splash, but it is unclear whether Sancho would be willing to join a club outside Europe at the age of 23.
Chelsea And Borussia Dortmund Among Contenders
Sancho has already shown that he is willing to play outside England, joining Borussia Dortmund before his 18th birthday.
But the London-born winger would surely not have wanted his time in the Premier League to end just two and a half years after his move to Manchester.
As such, an offer from Chelsea (6/1) would be appealing to Sancho, not least because he grew up supporting the Blues. But, Manchester United would be wary of selling to a domestic rival.
A return to Dortmund, who are available at 15/2 with football betting sites, looks more likely.
BVB would no doubt welcome Sancho back into the ranks, provided they can work out a suitable financial package with United.
The only question is whether the player himself would see that as a backwards step.
Roma And Barcelona Could Offer Sancho Way Out
Roma have signed Tammy Abraham, Nemanja Matic, Chris Smalling, and Romelu Lukaku from English clubs in recent years, and they could add Sancho to their collection in January.
Jose Mourinho will be keen to bolster his squad as Roma attempt to qualify for the Champions League by finishing in the top four of Serie A.
The club from the Italian capital are given an 8/1 chance by new betting sites of landing Sancho. Barcelona can also be backed at the same price.
Reports state the Blaugrana have been alerted to Sancho’s availability, but they are not thought to be weighing up an offer in January.
That could change if a player leaves the Camp Nou in the mid-season market, but as things stand Barcelona are outsiders at best.
Manchester City And Nottingham Forest Are Outsiders
Sancho was on Manchester City’s books for two years during his youth career, but he never made a first-team appearance for the club.
Unsure whether he would get enough first-team opportunities at the Etihad Stadium, Sancho moved to Borussia Dortmund in 2017.
City are unlikely to offer him a route back to the club. The England international’s stock has fallen, but a move from Manchester United to City would be a step up in terms of on-field matters.
Moreover, the Red Devils would not sell Sancho to their rivals. Odds of 9/1 look too short, in truth.
Nottingham Forest are listed at 10/1. They are ambitious and are not afraid to spend money, but this one looks unlikely as they continue their battle against Premier League relegation.
Milanese Duo Dark Horses As Things Stand
AC Milan (12/1) and Inter (14/1) are two of the dark horses in this market with betting apps.
Neither club has been linked with the winger yet, but both Stefano Pioli and Simone Inzaghi could pursue a move once the transfer window opens for business.
Inter are top of Serie A and Milan are third, with both teams in contention for the title.
We can expect the two Milanese giants to be active in the market at the start of 2024 and Sancho would provide another attacking option for both.
However, there are more probable destinations for the England international, including Juventus and Roma elsewhere in the top flight of Italian football.
