Manchester United (Man United) outcast Jadon Sancho is reportedly linked to a sensational move to Serie A side Juventus in the January transfer window.

The 23-year-old’s first-team exile continues following his high-profile spat with manager Erik ten Hag in September.

The duo disagreed over the winger’s training levels, with the England international hitting back at his manager on social media.

Sancho remains in limbo at Man United as his exile from the first-team squad continues as he has yet to apologise to Ten Hag.

As Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com reported, Sancho’s agents have proposed a January move to Juventus, who are now seriously considering the idea.

Bianconeri director Cristiano Giuntoli is a fan of the 23-year-old and wants to add a new winger to Massimiliano Allegri’s squad in the winter transfer window.

Sancho currently earns a reported wage of £250,000-a-week and €20m net per season at Old Trafford, figures that are far too high for Juventus, who would only be able to contribute around 30% of this.

Borussia Dortmund are among the clubs keen to explore a move for Sancho, while it is believed clubs in the Saudi Pro League also hold an interest.

Sancho, who has made three appearances in the 2023/24 campaign, continues to train away from the first-team squad following the row.

He last turned out for Man United as a substitute in the 3-2 home win over Nottingham Forest in August.

The ex-Dortmund star has not featured in any of the 15 matchday squads since then as Ten Hag holds out for an apology.
