Saudi clubs leading pursuit of Sancho

Saudi clubs are currently leading the race to sign Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho during the January transfer window.

Sancho is presently suspended by the Red Devils due to his ongoing dispute with manager Erik ten Hag for which he has refused to apologise.

The likes of Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are monitoring his situation, but they are unlikely to propose a permanent transfer in January.

As a result, a number of Saudi clubs are leading the pursuit of Sancho. Al-Ettifaq and Al-Ittihad are among contenders to sign him.

United value Sancho in the region of £45 million. This valuation is well within the reach of Saudi Pro League clubs in the New Year.

It remains to be seen whether Sancho would be interested in moving to the Middle East as he is just entering the prime phase of his career.

Dortmund could turn down a big-money move to Saudi to prolong his European career. Barcelona are also keeping tabs on him.
