Jadon Sancho has been reportedly put up for sale as Manchester United want outcast to leave permanently in January.
The England international found himself excluded from the Red Devils’ squad for their September clash against Arsenal.
Manager Erik ten Hag cited sub-par performances in training sessions as the reason behind this decision. An irate Sancho took to Instagram to publicly voice his frustrations, an act that further strained his ties with Ten Hag.
The rift between the two has only intensified since then. Sancho has been relegated from first-team training sessions, with Ten Hag stating that the player’s return would only be considered if he offers a genuine apology.
David McDonnell, reporting for the Mirror, suggests that Manchester United are contemplating a sale when the transfer window reopens in January, given the ongoing tension between Sancho and the managerial staff. The catch, however, is that United might have to settle for a significantly reduced fee. The club had previously acquired Sancho for a hefty £73 million in 2021.
But given the current circumstances, his value is believed to have dipped to approximately £40 million.
Former club Borussia Dortmund might be in the race to re-sign Sancho. Spanish giants Barcelona and Serie A’s Juventus are also monitoring developments closely, although they are believed to be leaning towards a loan move rather than a full transfer.
