Jadon Sancho is reportedly barred from using any of Manchester United’s first-team facilities

The English winger, 23, was kicked from the senior team after publicly criticizing Erik ten Hag.

Ten Hag accused Sancho of failing to train well enough to earn a spot in United’s matchday squad against Arsenal on September 3.

Sancho, on the other hand, responded on social media, portraying himself as a “scapegoat” and effectively calling his boss a liar.

Sancho has not played for the club since and has been barred from first-team training as a result of Ten Hag’s uncompromising stance, despite some team-mates disagreeing with the Dutchman’s decision.

According to the Mirror, he is not permitted to enter any of the senior men’s team areas at Carrington, including the canteen.

It means Sancho is eating and practicing alongside the Red Devils’ academy players, with no set return date to the first-team fold.

Ten Hag, on the other hand, is supposed to be willing to relent and welcome Sancho back with open arms if one condition is met.

A source told the Mirror: “There is an easy way to resolve this situation, which is for Jadon to say sorry to the manager.

“Something has to give – and it won’t be the manager.”

If no solution is found, Ten Hag will almost certainly want to sell Sancho in 2024.

A move to Saudi Arabia is likely, especially given Sancho’s reported weekly wage of £350,000 at Old Trafford.

According to Italian media, Jose Mourinho wants to sign the misfit winger for Roma, while former club Borussia Dortmund could offer him a way back to Germany. Sancho joined United from Dortmund in 2021 for £73 million.

The 23-cap Three Lions international, on the other hand, has only scored 12 goals in 82 Red Devils outings. Ten Hag let the player miss four months last season while he coped with physical and mental concerns.

Ten Hag has been limited of alternatives on the right wing in recent games due to Sancho’s exile and Antony’s current absence due to charges of domestic violence.

United defeated Burnley 1-0 on Saturday, giving them three victories and three losses in six Premier League games this season.
