Jadon Sancho Could Follow Manchester United Exit Route Of Two Ex-Teammates

Jadon Sancho Could Follow Manchester United Exit Route Of Two Ex-Teammates

The speed with which Jadon Sancho's position at Manchester United has become seemingly untenable has stunned football fans, with the English winger sidelined by manager Erik Ten Hag after a recent spat between the pair.

Sancho was excluded from the matchday squad when United travelled to Arsenal at the start of September, with Ten Hag suggesting that the decision to leave Sancho on the sidelines was influenced by poor efforts on the training ground.

In the aftermath of United's 3-1 defeat at the Emirates, Sancho took to Twitter with pointed remarks about Ten Hag's comments, refuting any suggestion he had not properly applied himself on the training pitch.

Sancho has since deleted the tweet, but the escalation of the conflict between manager and player has seen the player placed "on a personal training programme away from the first-team group, pending resolution of a squad discipline issue," per a club statement on Thursday.

The outlook now looks bleak for Sancho unless the situation between him and Ten Hag can be rectified, and reports have now begun to flood in linking the attacker with a move away from Old Trafford.

The latest reports from Manchester suggest that Jadon Sancho could become the third attacking player to leave United for Nottingham Forest in the space of little over 18 months.


Sancho has been linked with a move to the City Ground in a Manchester Evening News report, with a suggestion that the England international is open to a move away from Old Trafford in the January transfer window.


Forest are said to be interested in Sancho, off the back of their signing of Anthony Elanga during the summer window, a former teammate of Sancho's at Manchester United.

Similarly, Jesse Lingard signed for the two-time European champions after leaving United last summer, though his spell at the club was ultimately a disappointment and he has ended up as a free agent.

With all of the promise Jadon Sancho brought when he first signed for Manchester United for a huge €75 million fee in 2021, following in the footsteps of Anthony Elanga and Jesse Lingard in departing the club for Nottingham Forest would represent a thoroughly underwhelming end to his spell at the club.


Highlights have been few and far between for Sancho at United, with last season's opening goal against Liverpool at Old Trafford standing out as a rare high-point for the former Borussia Dortmund man.

A return to Dortmund is also seen as a possibility, per the Manchester Evening News report. Sancho is said to be reluctant to join the swathe of players moving to Saudi Arabia, after reported recent interest from clubs in the country.

It seems as though any return to first team action at Manchester United will not be forthcoming until a formal apology arives from Jadon Sancho to Erik Ten Hag, with a gaping hole now burning through United's squad at right-wing.
