In my opinion, Manchester United ace Jadon Sancho joining West Ham on loan in January would actually make perfect sense.

Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bolster his left and right wing positions during the January transfer window, and the Manchester United man needs to be playing regular football.

Money will be tight at the London Stadium this summer, with the West Ham owners allegedly only prepared to sanction loan deals.

It actually seems like a no-brainer to me.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer brought Sancho to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2021 for around €85 million (£75 million), according to ESPN.

The 22-year-old has made a really inauspicious start to life with Manchester United. He has bagged just eight goals and four assists in 52 games for the Red Devils (Transfermarkt).

And since Erik ten Hag took over as manager, he seems to have fallen well down the pecking order.

TEAMtalk are now claiming that Sancho could be sent out on loan for the second-half of the season.

And in my opinion, the perfect move for him would be to join West Ham for the remainder of the campaign…

Now, if the 22-year-old is to leave Man United on loan, getting the club 100% spot on will be key for both him and Ten Hag.

There is absolutely no point in Sancho leaving Old Trafford for a club where he wouldn’t be guaranteed regular first-team action.

At West Ham, he would be almost a shoo-in to play week in, week out.

Moving to the London Stadium would also give Sancho the chance to move closer to his Camberwell home, albeit for only a few months.

The ex-Dortmund ace should look at how Jesse Lingard reinvigorated his flagging career by joining West Ham on loan two years ago.

The move was such a success for the 30-year-old that he got himself back into contention for the England squad. And Sancho needs to do the same.

The London-born attacker’s recent fall from grace culminated in him missing out on Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the World Cup out in Qatar.

For a player with his talent and unbelievable ability, that really shouldn’t have happened. Solskjaer absolutely raved about the 22-year-old, when speaking to Man United’s official website after he signed him:

He’s such a creative, positive winger and forward player. He can play wide, nip into the pockets and he excites the fans. He takes people on one-against-one, he creates chances, he works hard and he loves football. And there is some untapped talent there I am sure, and coming into this environment will help him improve as well.

Sancho needs to refocus and start doing what he does best – scoring goals and providing assists.

The thing is, if he’s not starting for Man United on a consistent basis, that will be impossible for him to do.

Manchester United ace Jadon Sancho joining West Ham on loan in the January transfer window just seems like the deal solution for all parties concerned in my opinion.

I think he’d fit right in at the London Stadium as well. Sancho possesses something that we have really lacked recently in the final third recently – the ability to change a game in an instant.

I genuinely believe that the 22-year-old could be a huge hit at the London Stadium, and him moving to the Hammers isn’t as crazy as it may seem.

Whether David Moyes and the West Ham owners have the ambition to try and make it happen is another matter entirely though.
