Jadon Sancho to Nottingham Forest?! Man Utd outcast open to leaving Old Trafford in January amid Erik ten Hag feud with Premier League move among his options

  • Sancho exiled by Ten Hag
  • Nottingham Forest an option
  • Steve Cooper a big reason why

WHAT HAPPENED? Sancho has been sidelined until the resolution of a disciplinary matter by United manager Erik ten Hag. Sancho accused Ten Hag of lying about his absence from the matchday squad for the 3-1 Premier League defeat at Arsenal two weeks ago. Sancho withdrew the 110-word tweet he made, but he hasn't publicly apologised. According to sources close to the winger, it could be in his best interests to move on. Borussia Dortmund, where Sancho spent four years as a player, and Nottingham Forest, led by Steve Cooper have both been mentioned as potential candidates as per Manchester Evening News.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The winger would take a significant step back if he transferred from United to Forest, but it would make sense. He would be reunited with former England Under-17 manager Cooper, who is rumoured to be Sancho's favourite-ever coach.
