Last Word on Football’s Football Transfer News brings you the latest rumours from around world football. In today’s edition, fears increase over the potential departure of Leroy Sané from Manchester City. Will their rivals Manchester United be able to entice Jadon Sancho back to English soil? Perhaps they could bring another of football’s most sought-after prospects? Also, could Chelsea lose their own bright spark Callum Hudson-Odoi?
Transfer Rumours: Leroy Sané, Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland and Callum Hudson-Odoi
Fears Mount Over Leroy Sané Move
As James Ducker of the Telegraph reports, there are still concerns in Manchester over the departure of Leroy Sané to Bayern Munich. There was huge interest from Bavaria in the German winger, PFA Young Player of the Year in 2018. However, an anterior cruciate ligament injury over the summer squashed any rumours of an exit, for now at least. Yet, City are still drawing up a list of replacements should the winger leave the Etihad next year.
United Look To Exploit Sancho Troubles
Jamie Jackson of The Guardian writes that Manchester United are pining for Jadon Sancho, and could move to exploit the winger’s unhappiness at Borussia Dortmund. The German club fined the young Englishman and dropped him last month for being late to training. This has caused a rift between he and manager Lucien Favre, which could ultimately lead to his departure. However, there remains interest from Liverpool and Real Madrid in the 19-year-old talent.
Haaland A Wanted Man
According to Rob Dawson for ESPN, Manchester United are set to enquire about the availability of striker Erling Haaland in January. The 19-year-old forward has become one of football’s hottest prospects this year after scoring 26 goals in just 18 games; this tally includes seven in four Champions League fixtures. The Red Devils face stiff competition from European giants Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid. Yet, they may be prepared to loan the Norwegian striker back to current club Red Bull Salzburg. This could be a deciding factor in his next move.
Hudson-Odoi on Real’s Radar
If Jorge Santos of El Desmarque is correct, Callum Hudson-Odoi is high on the wanted list of Real Madrid. The 19-year-old only signed a new five-year deal with Chelsea this year, so the London side are under no pressure to sell. However, the sway of playing for one of the world’s biggest clubs could be too much to turn down. A summer swoop could be on the cards, but it depends on which of their young targets Madrid decide to prioritize.
