MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly refused to talk to Juventus about a potential loan deal for Jadon Sancho.
The 23-year-old England striker has been ruled out of Old Trafford since a public row with coach Erik ten Hag in early September in which he claimed he was being made a “scapegoat”.
He has been heavily linked with a move to Saudi Arabia in January.
It follows interest from Steven Gerrard’s Al-Ettifaq in the summer.
However, Fabrizio Romano Now Juventus are reporting that they have been “asking for information” about Sancho in recent days.
But the Serie A leaders are only interested in a loan and not a permanent move.
And Man Utd are prepared to wait for permanent transfer offers.
Juve also expected United to pay a portion of Sancho’s £350,000-a-week wages to push through the move – something the Red Devils are reluctant to do.
Therefore, negotiations with the two-time European champions still have to begin.
In addition to Saudi and Juventus, Sancho is also linked with a return to Borussia Dortmund.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe is said to be keen to sell him if he joins the United board following his investment in the club.

Sancho came from Dortmund three years ago for £73 million.
But he has only contributed 12 goals and six assists in 82 appearances for the Red Devils.
He has also not played an international match for England since October 2021.
