Manchester City are reportedly hoping that they can resolve their conflict with 17-year-old winger, Jadon Sancho.
Sancho has allegedly hot-footed it back to London after failing to turn up for several training sessions with City but the Manchester club are reportedly keen to keep him and resolve any conflict as soon as possible.
The teenager is supposedly a bit miffed after being left out of Pep Guardiola’s pre-season squad for their US tour, despite never making a first team appearances before, and has realised how difficult it could be for him to break into the former Barcelona manager’s senior side.
This has reportedly led him to look elsewhere, with Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United all interested.
According to the Daily Mail, Sancho will only set clubs from abroad back £190k, despite the teenager still having three years on his deal with City, with Borussia Dortmund said to be keen.
However, considering City paid the Hornets £500k two years ago, Premier League clubs would have to pay a lot more and, since fees for young players on scholarship contracts cannot be decided via tribunal, it would take a long time, leaving Sancho at a loose end.
The Independent also claim that his wages could be as high as £30k-per-week.
Last season, Sancho scored 20 goals in 33 appearances, and assisted seven, and was one of u18 coach, Lee Carsley’s, stand-out players.
The teenager has also been capped 16 times for England’s u17s and scored an impressive 13 goals in that time.
