Jadon Sancho is likely to leave Manchester United in January after a breakdown in relationship with manager Erik ten Hag, according to Sky Germany.
At this stage, a loan move is more likely than a permanent transfer, with a return to former club Borussia Dortmund unexpected but not entirely ruled out.
Dortmund head coach Edin Terzic is understood to be in regular contact with the England international.
Ten Hag has no intention of backing down in his stand-off with Sancho, who has not featured for the club since August after declaring on social media he has "been a scapegoat for a long time".
That was in response to Ten Hag stating he did not select the winger in the squad for the defeat at Arsenal due to his "performance in training".
United were hoping the matter could be resolved, with director of football John Murtough and chief executive Richard Arnold trying to mediate, but there remains no compromise from either party.
Sky Sports News has been told senior players at United have also tried to remedy the situation without resolution.
As such, it is likely Sancho will depart Old Trafford in the winter transfer window, although a destination is yet to be determined.Read on m.allfootballapp.com
