It looks as though Jadon Sancho is all set to leave the club in the January transfer window.
Manchester United Football Club have had some issues to deal with so far this term. Quite frankly, the start to the campaign can only be described as disastrous. Problems out on the right-wing have been evident. Mason Greenwood is no longer here. Antony is now available again, though he’s also had off-field things to deal with. Then you have Jadon Sancho…
The Englishman’s decision to question Erik ten Hag’s authority never looked like a wise one. He’s a gaffer who takes no rubbish and he was never going to allow a player to disrespect him. After some time away from the team, all had gone pretty quiet on that front.

However, this is the problem United have made for themselves, by paying massive wages to players who end up becoming rotational options at best.
Either way, I see no way back for Sancho under the current manager.
