Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has endured a frustrating first month of the new season. 

The Red Devils have lost two of their opening four Premier League matches so far, most recently when succumbing to a 3-1 defeat against rivals Arsenal at The Emirates on Sunday.

United were also unconvincing when beating both Wolves and Nottingham Forest, and the Dutchman will therefore be keen to ensure that his side shows improvement when domestic football returns after the international break.

Since Sunday’s defeat against the Gunners, Ten Hag has become involved in a public spat with winger Jadon Sancho.

The former Ajax boss appeared to criticise the England international and cited his attitude in training as the reason for his exclusion from the squad, and the player then responded on social media.

That appears to have left Sancho’s future at the club extremely uncertain, but he may now be handed a lifeline by one of Europe’s biggest clubs.

According to Fichajes via The Mirror, German champions Bayern Munich are keeping an eye on the Englishman and could make a move for him when the transfer window reopens.

Sancho faces an uncertain future at Old Trafford

The report claims that United are currently deciding what action to take following Sancho’s social media post, and he could be exiled from the squad entirely.

If that does happen, Bayern could make a move for the player in January, the report claims.

Sancho, 23, joined United from fellow German club Borussia Dortmund back in 2021 for a fee of around £73 million.

The winger had been impressive for Dortmund, scoring 50 goals and providing 64 assists in 137 matches across all competitions.

Since moving to Old Trafford, though, the former Manchester City academy star has failed to recreate the form he displayed in Germany.

In total Sancho has made 82 appearances for United, scoring 12 goals and registering six assists.

Despite costing United £73 million just two years ago, the report claims that the player is now valued at just £42.8 million.
