You misunderstand me as well. I don't see how signing Zaha assuredly means it blocks Sancho's development. A lot depends on what we do with other moves anyway, so this is fairly speculative. Seems more likely we would loan out Sancho, like we did with Maffeo and Angelino, Zinchenko, etc. before he sees much time with our first team. I think you're making some awfully big assumptions about what Sancho will or even can do regarding signing a professional contract. Not many big clubs can make such assurances, if any at all unless he's proving it regularly at a higher level, which is not where he is now. He may believe he is something, but unless you show it, like Jesus did, I doubt Pep is going to put that much faith in him. Sounds to me you also just don't rate Zaha and worry about Sancho leaving for some reason, from what I'm reading. I don't think we know Zaha won't be into being a squad player, as if he goes to Spurs seems that he could be facing a similar situation.
