Jadon Sancho Transfer: Manchester United ‘wants to sell the English forward in January rather than loan him’
Manchester United are reportedly hoping to offload Jadon Sancho during the January transfer window and are thus not interested in negotiating a loan deal for the unsatisfied attacker.
The 23-year-old’s career at Old Trafford appears to be over following a squabble with head coach Erik ten Hag, which has resulted in his removal from the club’s first-team picture entirely.
Sancho was left out of the squad against Arsenal in early September, with Ten Hag claiming that poor performance on the training ground was to blame.
Later, the England international took to social media to deny this, claiming that he had been made “a scapegoat” and effectively calling his manager a liar.
Sancho is not training with the first team at Carrington, and unless something extraordinary happens, he will not play for the club again under Ten Hag.
The forward is expected to leave when the January transfer window opens, and it was previously assumed that he would leave on a loan basis.
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Juventus has recently contacted Man United to discuss a short-term deal, However, the club is not currently negotiating a loan exit, with the club hoping to agree on a permanent transfer during the January market.
“As we know, the situation has been really complicated for the last two months – between Sancho and Manchester United, the people at the club, the coaching staff and obviously Erik ten Hag,” Romano wrote in the column he wrote for CaughtOffside.
