Barcelona 'plotting move for Jadon Sancho' and already have position lined up for Man Utd outcast
| Last updated
Barcelona are reportedly considering a move for Jadon Sancho and already know where they will play the Manchester United winger if he joins.
Sancho was not included in United's matchday squad for their defeat to Arsenal prior to the international break, with Ten Hag revealing that he had been dropped due to issues in training.
Sancho hit back at Ten Hag with a statement on social media, in which he branded Ten Hag's claims "untrue" while insisting he had been made a "scapegoat".
Ten Hag responded by banishing the player from first-team training and later refusing to name him in a press conference on Friday. Check out the video below.
Sancho is now expected to miss Saturday’s match against Brighton at Old Trafford after being spotted attending an U18 match earlier in the day.
Sancho has reportedly refused to apologise to Ten Hag and may look to leave the club in January if he is not brought back into the side before then.
Borussia Dortmund and Nottingham Forest have already been linked with Sancho, while there is now reported interest in the England international from Barcelona.
It is claimed that Barcelona feel Sancho could provide a valuable contribution on the left wing, a position where the Catalan club are now lacking depth following the departures of Abde Ezzalzouli and Ansu Fati to Real Betis and Brighton respectively.
However, a deal for the winger could prove to be problematic due to the Catalan club’s ongoing financial difficulties.
Sancho reportedly earns around £350,000 per week at Old Trafford and it is claimed the Premier League club would need to cover the majority of his wages if a move to the Nou Camp were to happen.
While that appears unlikely at this stage, United may consider it as an option if Sancho is not brought back into first-team contention before January.
They have already agreed to a similar arrangement with Getafe, covering the majority of Mason Greenwood’s salary while he is on loan at the Spanish club.
