JADON SANCHO has “no relationship” with manager Erik ten Hag, according to reports.
The Manchester United star has been exiled by his boss since the Red Devils’ 3-1 defeat at Arsenal on September 3.
Sancho, 23, had been dropped for the match, with Ten Hag questioning his application in training.
The England international subsequently refuted his manager’s claim, effectively accusing him of lying, and said he’d been made a “scapegoat”.
Ten Hag, 53, is demanding an apology from Sancho in front of the rest of the squad, something the former Borussia Dortmund ace doesn’t feel he should have to do. According to I News, Sancho and Ten Hag are “barely speaking”, with the situation locked in a stalemate.
Sancho has been training with United’s academy. It was claimed last month that he had been banned from all first team facilities at Carrington, including the canteen.
Ten Hag is claimed to want to “wash his hands” of Sancho.
The winger is said to be open to a January transfer. But it’s claimed that he would rather go out on loan before reassessing his situation next summer.
Should Ten Hag depart United amid their struggles, Sancho would then potentially see a way back at Old Trafford. Dortmund and Juventus are both said to be interested in launching a January swoop.
Man Utd have made their worst start to a season since the 1986-87 campaign.
Scott McTominay’s stoppage time double salvaged a 2-1 win over Brentford at Old Trafford last weekend.
The late triumph saw the Red Devils climb to tenth in the table with four wins and four losses from eight games this term.
Sancho has made three substitute outings this season, with the most recent coming on August 26.
He has played 82 times for Man Utd in total, scoring 12 goals and laying on six assists. – The Sun
