Manchester United’s forward Jadon Sancho is set to have discussions with the club’s coaching staff after a last-minute move to Saudi Arabia fell through, as reported by Sky Sports.
Despite Saudi Pro League clubs making significant signings this summer, Al Ettifaq’s attempt to secure a late loan deal for the English international hit a roadblock due to their insistence on a £50 million obligation to make the transfer permanent.
While the Saudi transfer window has closed, Sancho’s future at Manchester United has become uncertain following a public dispute with manager Erik ten Hag.
Sources suggest that Sancho now faces a challenge regaining the support of his teammates.
Following his exclusion by Ten Hag for the game against Arsenal, the manager cited Sancho’s poor training performances as the reason. In response, Sancho expressed his discontent with Ten Hag’s comments, stating that he had been a “scapegoat for a long time.”
Nonetheless, Sky reports that Sancho intends to engage with the coaching staff at Old Trafford during the international break to work on resolving the situation.
Since his £73 million transfer from Borussia Dortmund in 2021, the England international has struggled for consistent form and endured a period without playing from October 22nd to February 1st last season.
He ended the campaign with seven goals and three assists.
