Man Utd set asking price for Jadon Sancho as Borussia Dortmund transfer concerns revealed
| Last updated
Manchester United have set their Jadon Sancho asking price, a fresh report has claimed.
Ten Hag told media that Sancho had been excluded because of his poor performances in training, something the 23-year-old winger vehemently refuted in a social media post.
United subsequently announced Sancho would effectively be in exile, on a personal training programme away from the first team group until he apologises to Ten Hag.
The Mirror has since claimed that Sancho is unable to use any Carrington facilities at United, including the team dining room, so the player does not cause disharmony in Ten Hag’s squad.
With the situation appearing far from a resolution, Sancho has been tentatively linked with a transfer to the Saudi Pro League, while former club Borussia Dortmund have also been touted as a potential destination for the England international.
Sancho enjoyed major success at Dortmund between 2017 and 2021. However, according to German publication Bild, Dortmund have reservations about bringing him back to the club.
The Bundesliga side is reportedly worried about the player’s off-field activities dating back to his previous spell in Germany.
The publication claimed the club’s primary concern is they feel Sancho does not get enough sleep at night due to playing video games and being on his computer late into the night. Indeed, this week several accounts on Twitter have claimed they spotted Sancho playing EA FC 24 into the early hours of the morning.
Moreover, the player allegedly turns up to training late regularly.
Accusations surrounding Sancho’s time-keeping have also been made in the past, with medical expert Ben Dinnery, who runs the Premier Injuries site, having told Football Insider last season he had heard “whispers” Sancho has at times turned up late to training at United.
The Bild report states Sancho’s discipline at Dortmund was often discussed behind the scenes and senior figures at the club allegedly believe it could unsettle the current squad.
Another potential stumbling block would be the fee involved, with Bild claiming United would prefer to sell Sancho rather than loan the player, and have set an asking price of €60million (£52million).
