Man Utd 'make decision' on paying off Jadon Sancho and terminating his contract with the club

Man Utd 'make decision' on paying off Jadon Sancho and terminating his contract with the club

Sancho hasn't played a game for United since August.

Manchester United have reportedly made their mind up regarding Jadon Sancho's contract with the club.

The 23-year-old has not played since August after a public falling out with manager Erik ten Hag.

Sancho was left out of the matchday squad for September's 3-1 defeat to Arsenal after Ten Hag questioned his efforts in training.

Later that evening, the winger claimed he'd been made a 'scapegoat' in a now-deleted statement on social media.

He's refused to apologise to Ten Hag and has since trained away from the first team and used different facilities to his teammates.

There appears to be no way back for Sancho, who is on over £200,000-per-week at Old Trafford.

He's been linked with various clubs on the continent and even a transfer to the Saudi Pro League. There has been little to no concrete interest from these sides, however.

Sky Sports claimed last month that United had discussed terminating Sancho's contract as they attempt to implement a more ruthless approach to player power.

A new report from The Athletic has since confirmed United will not consider paying Sancho off.

The England international moved to United from Borussia Dortmund in 2021 for £73 million, meaning a contract termination would see a significant hit to Financial Fair Play.

United would have to pay Sancho the remainder of his deal, which runs until 2026 and wouldn't be able to write his book value down in accounts.

Sancho's absence comes at a time when United are struggling in attack. The Red Devils have only scored 22 goals in the Premier League and Scott McTominay is their top scorer with five.

Up top, Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho have three each, while Rasmus Hojlund and Anthony Martial have scored one. Antony and Facundo Pellistri are yet to open their accounts for the campaign.

United are currently seventh in the Premier League after a 2-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest on Saturday evening.

Ten Hag said post-match: "First half performance was okay. We invested to do less in the final third. I think we should have created more.

"The second half we had moments when we conceded goals. Then we come back in the game and I think the game was ours and we went for 2-1 and then we conceded.

"We had our moments but it was not good enough to win here. We know that. We have to make our performances consistent and have to do better. A game is 90 minutes and we have to invest from the first minute on."
