TL;DR news on Jadon Sancho at December 29, 2022

Former Republic of Ireland striker Tony Cascarino backed Sancho to be a big hit at Old Trafford and just the type of player Solskjaer is after. And based on the showing, Three Lions fans are in for a nervy summer if Tyrone Mings starts every game while Kalvin Phillips and Jadon Sancho will hope to have done enough to get in the team. Sancho started and was subbed for Jude Bellingham on 65 minutes. Starting on the right of the front three, Sancho started quietly with little coming off. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and football director John Murtough met on Thursday after the Europa League final defeat to Villarreal, with a potential move for Sancho said to be most eagerly discussed. Gareth Southgate has a wealth of attacking options available, with Harry Kane, Phil Foden, Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling, Jack Grealish, and Marcus Rashford all pushing to start. Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho have both been linked with the Red Devils, but nothing concrete has come from either player. Sancho might've influenced one of those campaigns. It's not just Sancho either. Sancho ultimately stayed at Dortmund, though there is strong talk that deal will be resurrected this summer. Indeed, a report earlier this month stated United players prefered a move to bring the Villa man to the club ahead of Sancho. A few days ago, the winger was linked with a switch to Borussia Dortmund, who have apparently identified him as a potential replacement for Sancho.
