WHAT HAPPENED? The England international's future at Manchester United is uncertain after he publicly responded to manager Erik ten Hag's criticism of his performances in training. Al-Ettifaq are now planning a late move for the forward before the Saudi Pro League transfer window closes later today, according to CBS Sports. Steven Gerrard's side have opened talks on a loan deal for the rest of the 2023-24 campaign.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Sancho appeared to be in Ten Hag's good graces following his three-month absence from the first squad last season to work on his mental health. However, his recent performances in training have failed to convince his manager, who omitted him from the matchday squad for United's 3-1 loss to Arsenal last Sunday. Sancho now appears to have been offered a fresh start in Saudi Arabia, but it remains to be seen if he's interested in making the switch.
