Manchester United have stopped paying Jadon Sancho because he does not train or play with the first-team

Manchester United have stopped paying the wages of attacking midfielder Jadon Sancho, according to Spanish outlet Sport.

The England international reportedly did not receive the salary he should have received on November 1, with the Red Devils insisting he would not get paid as long as he is no longer training and playing with the first team.

Sancho was banished from the Man United senior group by manager Erik ten Hag having refused to apologise for calling out the Dutchman on September 3 after the 3-1 loss to Arsenal.

The 23-year-old has also been removed from the squad WhatsApp group and has been training with the youth teams.

He currently earns £250,000 per week and is expected to leave Man United in January, but Sport claiming that the Old Trafford club have stopped paying him is unbelievable and unlikely to be true.

The Sun reported on Friday night that Sancho has missed numerous training sessions since being exiled from the first team.

They added that the former Borussia Dortmund star is still on full pay and has not been fined for missing training as he has always had a reason.

Man United have no reason to stop paying him in full as doing so could see him sue the club.

He last featured for the Red Devils in the 3-2 win against Nottingham Forest on August 26, in what was his third appearance of the campaign, and he has not been playing for the youth teams despite training with them.

Sancho has played his last game for Man United from the look of things, and the likes of Juventus and Dortmund have been linked with him ahead of the January transfer window.

His wages could be the stumbling block for the interested suitors, and the Red Devils will be desperate to cut their losses as paying a player for offering nothing makes no sense.
