Davinson Sanchez Profile – Net Worth, Background, Early Life, Family, Club, and International Career

Davinson Sánchez Mina, commonly known as Davinson Sanchez is a Colombian center-back who plays for the Premier League Tottenham Hotspur and the Colombia national team. Throughout his early career, the player has always been regarded as the best in his business and was considered one of the upcoming promising talents during his youth days, especially after winning the Ajax Player of the Year award in his first season with the club.

Despite being on an impressive rise during his early career, Sanchez’s trajectory went sharply downward after his first season with Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur. Although the player’s performances were still on par with the top center-backs in the world, he was not able to win any silverware with the Premier League club, thus ending his English football career trophyless in the summer of 2023. Sanchez has made enormous contributions to his country, with as many as 58 appearances for the Colombian national team.

Davinson Sanchez | Early Life and Family

Davinson Sanchez was born on June 12, 1996, to middle-class parents, Jose Sanchez and Luz Marina, who are farmers and housewives, respectively. He had been in love with football since childhood and used to play a lot during his youth. He has two older brothers, who were also very interested in the sport. Davinson Sanchez and his wife Daniela Reina got married in 2018 after a long relationship and have a son together, Salva Sanchez, who is still very young and studying in school.

During his youth, the player played in the youth academy of America de Cali, but after his parents moved, he joined the academy of the local side, Atletico Nacional. After showing signs of technical ability with outstanding ball-distribution ability, 17-year-old Davinson was given his first start in his club’s first team on October 27th, 2013 in a 0-1 loss to Boyaca Chico and the player never looked back again.

Davinson Sanchez | Club Career

Atlético Nacional

After his debut for the club, Davinson scored his first goal for Nacional on March 2, 2016, in a 3-0 victory over Sporting Crystal in the Copa Libertadores. Winning the Copa Libertadores that season with his club attracted many top European clubs, including the likes of Barcelona, Flamengo, and Ajax, and he eventually declined the offer to join Barcelona as he didn’t want to play for the club’s B team in the Spanish third division. Instead, Sanchez decided to join another European club at the end of the 2015/16 season.

Ajax

Sanchez signed for the Dutch club Ajax in June 2016 on a five-year contract for a transfer fee of €5 million and made his debut for the club on August 13 in a 2-2 draw with Roda JC Kerkrade. After scoring his first goal for the club on September 24 against PEC Zwolle, Sanchez went on to showcase a defensive masterclass at the back during the whole season, becoming Ajax’s best player of the season and attracting solid interest from top Premier League clubs after just one season with the club. Eventually, Sanchez ended up leaving Ajax for a Premier League club after just one season with them.

Tottenham Hotspur

Sanchez was signed by Tottenham on August 18, 2017, on a six-year contract for a transfer fee of £42 million. He made his debut for the club on August 27, coming on as a substitute for Mousa Dembele in the 92nd minute of the 1-1 draw with Burnley. After just one season, his performances earned Sanchez a contract extension with the club, extending his stay until 2024.

Sanchez scored his first goal for the club in February 2019 against Leicester City and scored his second goal, nearly two years later, in February 2021 in the 2020/21 FA Cup fifth-round match against Everton. But a few seasons later, Sanchez had become fans’ least favorite player as he was booed both while being substituted on for injured Clement Lenglet in the 35th minute and while being brought off for Arnaut Danjuma in the 58th minute on April 15, 2023.

Sanchez joined Turkish side Galatasaray on September 4, 2023 for a transfer fee of €9.5 million and has been playing regularly for them since making his debut in September 2023.
