Manchester United want to include £50 million obligation clause in any Jadon Sancho loan deal

Manchester United are adamant about including a £50 million obligation clause in any deal for Jadon Sancho as an exit looms large.

According to TEAMtalk, Manchester United want at least £50 million for Jadon Sancho and will insist on including an obligation clause if there is a loan move. An exit for the 23-year-old outcast seems imminent ahead of the January window.

The Jadon Sancho situation has gone quiet in recent weeks, with everyone seemingly giving up on the case. A spat between the winger and Erik ten Hag never was resolved despite calls for the 23-year-old outcast to apologise and revive his career at the club.

Neither side buckled, and the situation was allowed to head into an impasse. And now, it appears Sancho may have to leave the club ahead of the January transfer window. Despite the pressure on ten Hag after a string of terrible results, his position is not threatened.

Hence, the 23-year-old outcast will likely leave and will have an array of offers around the January window. For starters, there were heavy links with a return to Borussia Dortmund. But it appears Sancho would prefer to stay put in the Premier League.

Juventus are also chasing the winger. But as things stand, the Bianconeri are only interested in a loan move ahead of January. Manchester United are very much open to a sale but do not want to lose too much of their investment.

Amid talk of Saudi Pro League interest, Manchester United do not want to sell him for anything under £50 million and would prefer an outright sale. Yet, they are open to a loan move while insisting on a £50 million obligation clause from clubs keen on taking the 23-year-old outcast in January.

Whether that would suit some clubs keen on Sancho remains the question. Amid this saga, some clubs have become wary of spending too much on the winger after complaints about behaviour inconsistencies. So, they want to test him on loan. Manchester United appear open to all possibilities but at their terms. Despite rumours they might accept a lower bid, they are not about to do so for anything under £50 million.
