Sancho Raphinha substitution. Barcelona suggests the exchange at Manchester United. A swap that would satisfy everyone since the two players are both surplus to requirements on their respective teams.
What the two players have in common, however, is not just their roles and the fact that they are both superfluous. What they also have in common is the price for which their sporting achievements were acquired by their respective teams.
Both came to Manchester and Barcelona for 80 million euros, and the market value of both has fallen drastically. A performance followed a disappointing performance that did not match the price for which they were purchased. So Sancho and Raphina became unnecessary in their respective teams.
Sancho Raphinha exchange, but what is true?
As we told you here, Manchester United is already actively looking for buyers for Jadon Sancho. In particular, a request for information from Juventus Turin was registered, but nothing more. There are no real negotiations yet.
The truth is that Barcelona have proposed Sancho Raphina’s move to Man United. The Red Devils’ answer was a resounding no.
According to the management of the red team of Manchester, it would not be worth releasing a released player in exchange for another player whose performance could be the same without making money.
