Manchester United star could join Barcelona ON LOAN in January

The Red Devils could lose one of their squad players



Manchester United man Jadon Sancho could join Barcelona on loan in January should he fail to patch things up with Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford, according to reports coming out of Spain.

The England international aimed a dig at Erik ten Hag on social media after being left out of the travelling squad to take on Arsenal before the international break, writing that he would ‘not allow people saying things that are completely untrue’ and that he has ‘conducted himself very well in training this week’, adding that he has been a ‘scapegoat’ for a long time at Old Trafford.

He has since been training alone and is yet to be reintegrated into the squad, despite a lack of options in wide areas for Ten Hag following Antony’s decision to stay away from the club as he tackles claims of domestic violence.

His absence shows no signs of ending either, with the Englishman not expected to be involved in the coming weeks and there being little suggestion of he and Ten Hag reconciling.

Now, Spanish outlet Sport.es report that Catalan giants Barcelona are ‘keeping a close eye on the situation’ and are weighing up ‘the eventual possibility of acquiring the services of this player on loan for the January market’.

Whether United would agree to such a move is likely to depend on other interest, with the Red Devils certain to prefer a permanent transfer as they battle financial fair play to boost their own squad.

Barca have already signed Joao Felix on loan this season, but are keen to add another left-sided option following the departure of Ansu Fati on loan to Brighton, with only Ferran Torres and Lamine Yamal to call upon as things stand.
