Arsenal turn down the opportunity to sign £250k-a-week Man United ace

Arsenal have reportedly been offered the chance to sign the Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho.

According to a report via Standard, Arsenal were offered the 24-year-old winger, but they have decided to turn down the opportunity because of his high wages.

Sancho earns in the region of £250,000 a week and Arsenal are unwilling to spend that kind of money on the player. The Gunners need more depth in the wide areas and Sancho could have been a useful addition for them.

The 24-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester United and he needs to leave permanently in order to get his career back on track. He was on loan at Borussia Dortmund during the second half of last season and he was quite impressive for them. Sancho played a key role in their run to the UEFA Champions League finals.

The winger will be hoping to secure a permanent exit from Manchester United this summer, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Previously, we have covered reports that he was offered to Chelsea as well. The Blues decided to reject the opportunity to sign the England international. It seems that Arsenal have now done the same as well.

Man United keen to offload Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are ready to sell him for a fee around £40 million and they have offered clubs the opportunity to sign him on loan with an obligation to buy next summer.

Apart from Chelsea and Arsenal, the likes of Manchester City and Barcelona have been offered the player as well. It will be interesting to see if any club is willing to come forward for him this summer. There is no doubt that he is a quality player and he could be a key performer at a high-level.

Sancho needs to join a club where he will get regular game time, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
