Juventus have registered their interest with Manchester United in signing Jadon Sancho in January.

The winger hasn’t played for the club since August, when he launched a scathing attack on Erik ten Hag after he was left out of a trip to Arsenal.

Sancho accused Ten Hag of being a liar and for not revealing the truth as to why he was left out of the squad.

The playmaker has since been ostracised from the first team after refusing to apologise, and United won’t to get him off the books in January.

While the club would favour a permanent departure, they know suitors may be in short supply given Sancho’s wage demands and value.

Juventus are looking to bolster their attack as they look to regain the Serie A title and Fabrizio Romano says the Italians have opened talks with United over a move for Sancho.

The Italian giants have been asked to be kept up to date on Sancho’s situation, with a view to making a loan bid for the England ace.

Juventus would want United to cover a significant portion of Sancho’s wages, potentially as much as 50%.

Sancho is said to earn around £250,000-a-week at United.
