According to Sport, Manchester United is exploring the possibility of a swap deal between Jadon Sancho and Barcelona winger Raphinha in the upcoming January transfer window.
Sancho, who is currently suspended by the Red Devils following a public outburst at manager Erik ten Hag, seems set to leave, with no sign of remorse for his actions.
Sport suggests that discussions about a potential swap have taken place, and the next few weeks could determine whether the deal comes to fruition.
Barcelona, in turn, is open to the idea of offloading Raphinha, valuing him at €92 million, and is also considering interest from Saudi.
While Raphinha has expressed a desire to stay at Barcelona, the changing dynamics within the squad might lead him to reconsider.
Sancho’s fallout with the manager makes a move to Barcelona an attractive prospect for the 23-year-old.
A straight-swap deal could be advantageous for both clubs, with Raphinha having previously impressed during his time with Leeds United, contributing to 29 goals in two seasons.
However, if Barcelona seeks additional funds, United’s Financial Fair Play constraints may impact their decision on the potential move.
