Journalist Dean Jones has said that Tottenham Hotspur would only consider making a move for Jadon Sancho in January if he is available for a cut-price fee.
While there has never been any doubt over Sancho’s talent, the winger has struggled to live up to his potential at United since his £73m switch from Borussia Dortmund back in 2021.
Some publications reported during the summer that Tottenham had their eye on the 23-year-old (Daily Star), with journalist Ben Jacobs even suggesting at the start of July that the Lilywhites reached out to Man Utd about the player’s availability (GiveMeSport).
Aston Villa were also credited with an interest in the England international during the summer (Football Transfers) but in the end, he remained at Old Trafford.
Would Jadon Sancho be a good signing for Spurs?
However, it now looks like Sancho’s time at the Manchester club might soon come to an end after the forward publicly refuted Erik Ten Hag’s claim about his performance in training and accused the United boss of making him a scapegoat (talkSPORT).
It has since been reported that the former Dortmund star is training away from the first-team at United after refusing to apologise to the Dutchman (The Athletic).
When asked if Tottenham could reignite their interest in Sancho in January, Jones has now told GiveMeSport: “It doesn’t feel like the sort of one that Tottenham are going to be looking for in the January window, from what I can tell at this stage.
“So I wouldn’t necessarily expect them to need to come back in for Jadon Sancho in a moment like that unless an easy loan or a really cheap deal opened up.
“But the big question for Jadon Sancho will be whether he even has a future within the Premier League or he needs to go back abroad again. I think that’s going to be the first thing that he has to address.”

Even if Sancho felt that he had trained well in the week leading up to the Arsenal game and that Ten Hag’s assessment was incorrect, it certainly was not the right decision to air his grievances on social media.
That combined with his refusal to apologise and his poor body language whenever opportunities come his way, suggests that the 23-year-old has some attitude issues. So, I do not think the idea of signing Sancho would appeal to Postecoglou.
