Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho and Tottenham star Richarlison targeted for Saudi Arabia January transfers

Nov 15, 2023

The pair are long-term targets for the Saudi Pro League and interest is set to be ramped up when the transfer window opens.

talkSPORT reported in October that a move to Saudi is the most likely option for Manchester United outcast Sancho.

The 23-year-old is desperate to leave Old Trafford following a highly-publicised fallout with manager Erik ten Hag.

He has been banished from the United first-team and all signs are pointing to a January exit.

Former club Borussia Dortmund had shown interest, but his £250,000-a-week wages remain prohibitive.

That’s where Saudi clubs can step in and one made a late loan bid for the winger in the summer.

talkSPORT understands that heading to the Middle East remains an option for Sancho.

Tottenham star Richarlison has also been a long-term target for Saudi Arabian clubs.

A move to Al Hilal is a possibility if Spurs were open to letting him leave the club.

Richarlison has been out with a groin injury

The 26-year-old has made 10 total appearances for the club in the Premier League this season, but has scored just once.

He is currently out injured and after surgery on a groin issue.

Manager Ange Postecoglou has preferred Heung-Min Son to the Brazilian through the middle, while Brennan Johnson came into the team on the left after his injury.
