Jadon Sancho is almost certain to leave Manchester United in January following his long exile from the Premier League club’s senior squad.
United manager Erik ten Hag has cast the winger aside following the 23-year-old’s actions after the Red Devils were defeated by Arsenal in early September, actions the Englishman is yet to apologise for.
