Fabrizio Romano has revealed that the 'most likely solution' to the Jadon Sancho situation is a January move unless the player apologises.

The England international is still in Manchester United exile. Several weeks after being banished from the first team for publicly calling Erik ten Hag a liar in the wake of the Dutchman claiming that he omitted Sancho against Arsenal because of poor training performances, the situation surrounding the 23-year-old has not changed.

Speculation about the winger's future, however, is still continuing unabated. On Saudi Pro League Deadline Day, a club - believed to have been Steven Gerrard's Al-Ettifaq - enquired about Sancho, but Man Utd's asking price reportedly made a deal impossible.

Some have floated the idea of Sancho acting as an unlikely reinforcement for Chelsea or Arsenal in January, while other outlets have asserted that Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich are keen on bringing the winger back to the Bundesliga.

The latter rumours have been dispelled by German media, but according to Fabrizio Romano, it is true that Sancho will likely head for the exit in the winter transfer window.

What did Romano say?

Speaking on his YouTube channel, the Italian transfer expert said: "There is still enough time to clarify the situation between Sancho and United, but the only way for Jadon Sancho to be back in the squad is to apologise."

"Apologise to Erik ten Hag, apologise to the whole coaching staff - because the coaching staff is part of the process in this Jadon Sancho story - and apologise to the teammates. This is what Manchester United want for Jadon Sancho to be back in the squad."

"Otherwise, he will remain out and obviously the January transfer window would be the most likely solution in case Sancho is not part of the squad again. They can't continue like this."
