Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho is not keen on going back to his former club Borussia Dortmund, and rebuilding his career in Serie A with Juventus holds greater appeal, reports the Sun.
The 36-time Italian top-flight winners are keen on signing the England international on loan in January with an option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
However, Juve want Man United to pay half of his £350,000 weekly wages for a temporary deal to work out.
Sancho joined the Red Devils from Dortmund in 2021 for £73 million, and the Old Lady could turn their loan deal into a permanent £60m move next summer.
The 23-year-old is currently out of favour at the Old Trafford club after refusing to apologise to manager Erik ten Hag for calling the Dutchman out on social media after the defeat to Arsenal last month.
He has been training away from the first team and could have played his last game for Man United by the look of things.
The Red Devils are expected to sanction a January exit as Sancho does not look ready to make up with Ten Hag.
He was linked with an exit in the summer but a move to Saudi Arabia fell through as he was not keen on joining a club outside Europe.
Having failed to impress in the Premier League, a return to another foreign league appears appealing to Sancho after his success in the Bundesliga, and Juventus are willing to take a punt on him.
More suitors are expected to emerge for the Man United forward ahead of the January transfer window, and he will be keen to prove himself having struggled at the Theatre of Dreams.
