Manchester United will be hoping to end a run of three games without a win when they face West Ham United on Saturday. 

The Red Devils have struggled so far this season and were beaten 3-0 by Bournemouth ten days ago, before being knocked out of the Champions League after a 1-0 loss against Bayern Munich.

A 0-0 draw against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday will undoubtedly have pleased manager Erik ten Hag, but the Dutchman will still be keen to ensure that his side now kick on; starting with victory over the Hammers on Saturday.

West Ham returned to winning ways last time out with a convincing 3-0 victory over Wolves, though, and Ten Hag will be wary of the danger posed by David Moyes’ side.

In the meantime, a trio of Bundesliga clubs have reportedly held talks over a proposed move for United winger Jadon Sancho, according to 90min.

The report claims that Stuttgart, Bayer Leverkusen, and RB Leipzig have all expressed an interest in the Englishman, who has become an outcast at Old Trafford.

Sancho has attracted interest from clubs in Germany, where he previously displayed superb form

Back in August, Ten Hag cited the player’s attitude in training as the reason for his omission from their squad to face Arsenal and, when the winger responded on social media, he was banished from the first team squad.

He has since been absent for United and likely has no realistic future at Old Trafford, but despite his lack of action in recent months the player still has admirers in Germany.

Sancho, 23, joined United from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund in 2021 and the report claims that his former side remain Sancho’s most likely destination if he does depart Manchester.

In total, Sancho has scored 12 goals and provided six assists in 82 games across all competitions, compared to 50 goals and 64 assists in 137 games for Dortmund.
