Sancho’s immediate exit is highly unlikely given the options currently available and as the 23-year-old is among the club’s top earners at over £250,000 a week.

United reportedly considered offers for Sancho during the latest transfer window and former club Borussia Dortmund remain long-term admirers. Sancho’s inability to secure a regular first team place and United’s difficult cash position meant that offers in the summer would be considered and this remains the case as things move forward.

Ten Hag, meanwhile, hasn’t been impressed with Sancho’s training performance recently and his decision was a result of that.
