Barcelona have reportedly registered an interest in out-of-favour Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho if reports in Spain are to be believed.

According to a report from Sport, Barcelona are monitoring the situation of the English winger after he seemingly refused to apologise to Erik ten Hag.

The player’s public social media statement, which he kept on his profile for over a week, has led to the winger being out in the cold as he watched the United Under 18s yesterday, as the first team took on Brighton & Hove Albion.

Barcelona have, according to the report, always liked the player and would be prepared to offer him a way out of his Manchester nightmare.

His wages, reported to be £350,000 a week according to Spotrac, may well be an issue for the Spanish side.

Barcelona’s loan offer

According to the same report, the Spanish giants may well be tempted to make a loan offer for the player in January due to their precarious financial situation.

Whether United would accept that offer remains to be seen but there would need to be a buy option included in the package but Barcelona seemingly can’t do that deal at this moment in time.

If Xavi’s side came in for the 23-year-old winger then you wonder if Ten Hag would sanction this move with Sancho still not apologising for his social media post.

Should United cut their losses

Sometimes a player and manager just simply don’t mix well. It seemed like a match made in heaven but it now seems like a nightmare scenario for the pair.

United were reportedly open to letting the winger move to Al-Ettifaq but the Saudi side refused to agree to a loan with an obligation to buy worth £50 million.

It is hard to see where the winger would fit in at Old Trafford and he certainly hasn’t set the world alight since his £73 million move to the club two years ago.

Maybe Ten Hag may well think it’s better for the club to cut their losses on the winger and allow him to make a clean break away from Old Trafford.
