Sancho has been training in Holland with coaches recommended by his manager, Erik ten Hag, after not playing for United since October 22 due to illness.


After being left out of England’s World Cup squad, the 22-year-old missed the club’s training camp in Spain last week.

According to report, Sancho, who joined United for £73 million from Borussia Dortmund 18 months ago, turned off his social media accounts last month to focus on his family and the second half of the season.

Giving update on the player, Ten Hag said: ‘I don’t think he will be back this week, no,’ said Ten Hag. ‘We want to bring him back as quickly as possible, but I can’t give a prognosis of when that will be. Sometimes there are circumstances with fitness and mood. We got a drop of quality level and sometimes you don’t know why or what is causing it.


Explaining Sancho’s absence from the Spanish trip, Ten Hag added: ‘He wasn’t fit enough to be there. It’s a combination of physically and mentally.’
