The rift between winger Jadon Sancho and Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has taken an isolating turn. Sancho has found himself training in solitude after publicly accusing Ten Hag of making him a “scapegoat.” This contentious fallout unfolded after the English summer transfer window had already slammed shut, postponing any potential exit until January.
With limited options on the flanks, Ten Hag remains resolute, and Sancho, as reported by the Manchester Evening News, has tentatively expressed his openness to leaving the Red Devils early next year.
Sources close to the winger suggest that such a move might be in Sancho’s best interests. However, there’s a caveat – he appears to be apprehensive about relocating to Saudi Arabia (which seems entirely reasonable).
Interestingly, two potential destinations have surfaced. While links to Borussia Dortmund hardly raise eyebrows, Nottingham Forest’s reported interest has caught attention. The prospect of reuniting with Steve Cooper, his former Under-17 England manager, at Forest, adds a compelling twist to Sancho’s potential January transfer saga.
