Juventus’ pursuit of signing Jadon Sancho may receive a boost from Sir Jim Ratcliffe, according to Tuttosport.
The 23-year-old forward has faced exclusion from the Manchester United side due to a reported falling out with manager Erik ten Hag, despite his £73 million transfer just two years ago.
Reports suggest that Juventus, heavily interested in Sancho, could benefit from the involvement of former Juve executive Jean-Claude Blanc, expected to be appointed as United’s new CEO.
Blanc, a trusted associate of INEOS chief Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is responsible for overseeing INEOS’ entire sporting portfolio.
Notably, Blanc played a significant role in the revival of Juventus during his five-year tenure and maintains a strong relationship with the Serie A giants.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe set to become a new minority shareholder of Manchester United, is inclined towards resolving the dispute between Sancho and Ten Hag or facilitating a transfer, recognizing the financial impracticality of the ongoing feud.
The INEOS chief’s strategic involvement, along with Blanc’s influence, could potentially pave the way for Sancho’s move to Juventus.
