Surprise club emerge as favourites to sign Jadon Sancho from Man Utd, the deal is moving fast

A new club is now leading the race to sign Jadon Sancho from Manchester United in January, according to a report.

Sancho has not played a competitive match for United since August, after a public dispute with manager Erik ten Hag over his training performances.

He has been on a 'personal training programme' away from the rest of the squad, as confirmed by the club, and Sky Sports report that he will not be reintegrated until he apologises for a social media post which contradicted comments made by the manager following United's 3-1 defeat to Arsenal on September 6.

There was interest from Saudi Pro League clubs towards the end of their transfer window last month, but a deal did not materialise.

That has left Sancho with the very real possibility of not playing again until January - and potentially beyond if the situation is not resolved by then and he cannot seal a move away from Old Trafford.

He has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund, while a potential move to Tottenham has also been rumoured as a possibility.

Now, however, another European giant has entered the race.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Juventus are now interested in signing Sancho on a loan deal in January.

It is claimed that the Bianconeri are 'waiting for a positive signal' from United, and are now leading the race to sign the 23-year-old winger.

Massimiliano Allegri's side have generally played a three-defender formation this season - a system Sancho is not used to playing in.

As a result, Sancho would likely have far more defensive responsibilities if he was to be played on either flank in Turin.

It could be, however, that Sancho would play in a centre forward or second striker role if he joined Juventus.

Winger Federico Chiesa has played centrally this season to great effect, scoring four goals in seven Serie A games thus far. Strike partner Arkadiusz Milik also has four goals to his name.

But according to Calciomercato, Sancho still prefers a return to previous club Dortmund over a fresh move - which could cause issues for Juve.
