17-year-old Sancho is at loggerheads with City and as reported earlier failed to show up for training several times while the first team were on tour in the US.
Sancho is under contract with City but wants to quit the club out of fear that his pathway to Pep Guardiola’s first team squad will be blocked by the abundance of attacking talent the club possesses.

Jadon Sancho was tipped to break out into the Manchester City squad this term and the club chairman Khadoon Al Mubarak mentioned Sancho’s name alongside Brahim Diaz and Phil Foden as the ones who are likely to get a raise this season.
He said, “You look at Sancho, you look at Phil Foden, you look at Brahim Diaz, just to name a few. These are players that are extremely talented. These are players who have a very good chance of making it to the first-team.”
“And these are players that if you ask Pep today he will tell you they can and will be first team players at Manchester City. There is a balance that you have to strike,” he continued.
There have been rumours for months of Sancho’s unhappiness at City and they only intensified when he was left out of City’s traveling squad to America, which included a host of youngsters and saw the likes of Phil Foden, Brahim Diaz and Demeaco Duhaney see plenty of game time, with the mercurial Brahim scoring against both Real Madrid and Tottenham.
Sancho posted a shot of himself with Foden and Brahim – three of City’s finest prospects – on social media the other day, but it appears that unlike them, he sees his immediate future away from the Etihad unless the club can convince him otherwise.
