Form is temporary, class is permanent. That’s a saying that’s often bandied about in football and Newcastle United would be wise to heed those words.

Jadon Sancho is stuck in a nightmare at Manchester United. The former England international’s career has taken a sharp nosedive since joining the Red Devils and now it looks like his days are numbered at Old Trafford.

With all the public sniping back and forth between Sancho and Man United boss Erik ten Hag, it seems likely that come the next transfer window Sancho will find his name on the transfer list and to facilitate a quick sale, will likely be undervalued just to get a deal done.

Another midfielder wouldn’t hurt Newcastle too much, would it?

I know that Newcastle have a wealth of midfield options, and Jadon Sancho could be seen as very similar to Anthony Gordon, I still believe there’s potential for Sancho to find his place at Newcastle.

If any man can pick a player up off the deck and inject them full of confidence it’s Eddie Howe, and I think, no, I know he can do that for Sancho if he’s given the opportunity.

Sancho was at one point one of England’s brightest stars until he made his £73million move to Manchester United and the absolutely Chelsea‘d him (That is to say brought in an exceptional young talent and immediately ruin them).

Hailed as a ‘frightening‘ player back in his Borussia Dortmund days, Sancho was known for his skills on the ball and his pace which earned him his place in the England set up. However, in a rare case of Gareth Southgate picking his team based on merit rather than being a mate, Sancho has found himself out of England’s plans for a while.

Moving to Newcastle could get Sancho’s career back on track

A move to Newcastle would surely resurrect his career at club and international level.

If Howe is set to make tactical tweaks, which many fans think is imperative right now, then if Newcastle wind up playing with a number 10 then Sancho could be the perfect man for the job.

This summer it was believed that Manchester United would have listened to offers of £45million for the 23-year-old and I’d not be surprised if that figure dropped even more come January, and even more come next summer if he’s still not moved on.
