Man Utd news LIVE: Jadon Sancho exit updates, takeover latest as Beckham in line for role if Qatari bid is accepted | The Sun

JADON SANCHO and Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag are "barely speaking", with the situation locked in a stalemate.

Reports claim Sancho would rather go out on loan in January and then reassess his options rather than a permanent exit.

Elsewhere, David Beckham will be reportedly offered an ambassadorial role at Manchester United should the Red Devils be taken over by Qatar.

According to talkSPORT, the former England captain is one of a number of United legends that Sheikh Jassim has shortlisted for potential roles if his offer to buy the club is successful.

    Take the Mik

    Chelsea legend John Obi Mikel has called out Erik ten Hag over a major "no-no" Sir Alex Ferguson would never have done.

    The former midfielder has taken aim at the Manchester United boss for his handling of the fallout with Jandon Sancho.

    Speaking on The Obi One podcast Mikel said: "I think that calling Sancho out should be a no-no.

    "My view is that the manager shouldn't have said what he said in public.

    "When you listen to the ex-United players they've all said one thing – when things like this happened before during Sir Alex Ferguson, it was dealt with inside the dressing room, he handled it.

    "You cannot come out publicly and criticise a player and say he wasn't training really well."

    Jad to go

    Jadon Sancho has "no relationship" with manager Erik ten Hag, according to reports.

    The Manchester United star has been exiled by his boss since the Red Devils' 3-1 defeat at Arsenal on September 3.

    Sancho, 23, had been dropped for the match, with Ten Hag questioning his application in training.

    The England international subsequently refuted his manager's claim, effectively accusing him of lying, and said he'd been made a "scapegoat".

    Ten Hag, 53, is demanding an apology from Sancho in front of the rest of the squad, something the former Borussia Dortmund ace doesn't feel he should have to do.

    According to I News, Sancho and Ten Hag are "barely speaking", with the situation locked in a stalemate.

    Meulensteen slams Varane

    Rene Meulensteen has claimed Raphael Varane is no longer up to the speed of the Premier League.

    He said: "Varane can't manage the pace. The Premier League is dynamic. Everything goes at 100 miles an hour.

    "That's the big problem with the midfield. They don't have energy and that’s how the defence struggles.”

    Ten Hag must tinker

    Ex-Man Utd coach Rene Meulensteen believes Erik ten Hag might have to be flexible with his style of play.

    Meulensteen explained: "He wants a lot of intensity. Like he did at Ajax. The players don't have the mentality to put constant pressure.

    "Casemiro, for example, doesn't have the chest for that.

    "Ten Hag has a certain conviction about the way he wants to play, but he has to find ways to get there."

    Ten Hag responsible

    Erik ten Hag cannot use the current ownership situation as an excuse, claims Sir Alex Ferguson's assistant Rene Meulensteen.

    He said: "Ten Hag got all these players and cannot say that he was not supported. He indicated that he was satisfied.

    "These are not players who were brought in by the Glazers.

    "Responsibility for the players on the field lies with Erik."

    Hojlund settling in

    Christian Eriksen has played a huge role in helping his compatriot Rasmus Hojlund settle in at Man Utd.

    The midfielder explained: "We've been out to eat. He's been over at my house, and we see each other every day at the club.

    "I have given him my advice, and he has chosen to live close to the stadium and the training facility, so he has listened there

    "I think Rasmus has been a wise purchase. He's a guy who fits into the squad, fits into the way of playing."

    Eriksen pinpoints faults

    Christian Eriksen has pointed to two major issues plaguing Manchester United this season.

    United have made a poor start to the campaign and sit 10th in the table going into the international break.

    Eriksen believes that United's wretched injury record is one cause of the club's slow start – and the other is that they've simply conceded too many goals.

    He said: "We have been hit hard by injuries in defence. We have simply conceded too many goals."

    De Gea in Manchester

    David De Gea is back in Manchester for the first time after leaving Man Utd following the expiration of his contract.

    The Spanish goalkeeper was at the club for 12 years before being replaced by Andre Onana.

    De Gea is back in England to attend to his £3.5m house in Manchester.

    He has spent the summer with his wife and two-year-old daughter in Madrid.

    The 32-year-old is reportedly in no rush to find a new club and will wait for the right opportunity.

    Forson contract talks

    Man Utd are looking to hand Omari Forson a new contract.

    The 19-year-old striker impressed in pre-season with the first-team and has caught the eye in the Youth Champions League.

    Forson's deal expires this summer and the club are keen to tie him down to a long-term deal.

    Roof issue

    Man Utd are aware of the leaky roof above the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand.

    However, it is unclear if it will be fixed during the season as work would lead to a reduction in attendances with part of Old Trafford having to be closed with cranes needing to be installed.

    A new roof could also be costly and the Glazers are reluctant to spend on it if a takeover leads to the stadium being rebuilt or redeveloped anyway.

    Akturkoglu battle

    Several Premier League clubs including Arsenal and Tottenham are keeping track of Kerem Akturkoglu, according to reports.

    The Turkish attacker, 24, recently caught the eye as Galatasaray beat Man Utd 3-2 in the Champions League.

    He scored their second goal on the night to make it five goals and six assists this season.

    Akturkoglu will look to catch the eye of English clubs again as United travel to Istanbul on November 29.

    Reguilon recovery

    Sergio Reguilon will reportedly play in the secret friendly against Barnsley today.

    The Spaniard, who is on loan from Tottenham, has missed United's last four matches with a muscle injury.

    His return to action cannot come soon enough for Erik ten Hag, who reportedly even considered rushing him back for the 2-1 win versus Brentford on Saturday.

    There has been problems at left-back this season with Reguilon, Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia all injured with Sofyan Amrabat and Victor Lindelof filling in during recent games to mixed success.

    Mainoo not risked

    There was hope that Kobbie Mainoo would play but in the friendly match between United and Barnsley today.

    But it has reportedly come too soon for him as he recovers from an ankle issue.

    The 18-year-old midfielder picked up the problem while impressing in a 2-0 pre-season friendly defeat to Real Madrid in July.

    Mainoo has been training with the first-team squad in recent weeks and is expected back soon, claims The Daily Mail.

    United play friendly today

    Man Utd are playing in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Barnsley today.

    The Red Devils have arranged the game to help those coming back from injury and to maintain the fitness of players not away on international duty.

    The majority of players set to feature against Barnsley will be Under-21 stars.

    They were allowed to use the senior team's facilities at Carrington yesterday to prepare for the match.

    The Tykes currently sit third in League One.

    Emirates stadium snub

    The United Kingdom and Ireland have won their bid to host the 2028 Euros.

    But some fans have raised questions over why some of the most famous venues in English football have been rejected from hosting matches in the esteemed tournament.

    Anfield and Stamford Bridge are missing out due to the fact that their respective pitch sizes do not meet UEFA criteria for international tournaments.

    Meanwhile, Arsenal’s Emirates was rejected in place of Tottenham’s brand new arena as the capital’s chosen site along with Wembley.

    Manchester United’s iconic Old Trafford will not be included after the owners discussed plans to renovate the stadium in the off-season with the FA.

    The Glazers have yet to conclude their strategic review as they wrangle over the sale of the club to either Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al-Thani or Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

    Gary Neville's new prediction

    Manchester United legend Gary Neville has made a U-turn on his season prediction after his former club's sluggish start.

    I don’t think Manchester United will finish in the top five this season.

    I think they are way off it. And I’m surprised because seven or eight weeks ago, I had them third.

    But honestly from what I see at the moment, I don’t think the goalkeeper is settled in, I think he should have saved the one yesterday so that is a problem.

    If your goalkeeper is not settled in and there is a bit of instability around that, it does create a big problem. I’ve had that at United. So United, not for me.

    McTominay feared Sir Alex

    Manchester United ace Scott McTominay previously admitted he was terrified of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

    Sir Alex. Yeah, whenever we saw him in the canteen, he would just say, 'Are you behaving yourself?'

    You'd just be quiet. You'd never know what to say.

    Especially with him being from Scotland, I think it was special, and he invited us up whenever I signed my scholarship with all the players in the dressing room, it was a Fulham game in the Premier League.

    Man Utd target Benfica ace

    Manchester United are keeping tabs on Benfica star Joao Neves ahead of the January transfer window, reports SunSport's Steve Brenner.

    United manager Erik ten Hag has already sent his scouts to watch Neves.

    The 19-year-old has been one of Benfica's stand out performers this season and is a regular starter for manager Roger Schmidt's reigning champs.

    The Portugal international, whose career is guided by Cristiano Ronaldo's super-agent Jorge Mendes, has taken over in midfield from Enzo Fernandez following his move to Chelsea.

    Neves recently signed a new deal with Benfica which runs through to 2028 and has a release clause of £103million.

    David Beckham return?

    Manchester United legend David Beckham could return to Old Trafford in a new role.

    That’s if Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al-Thani’s takeover bid to buy United is successful.

    Beckam gave his backing to Sheikh Jassim’s efforts at the Qatar Grand Prix on Saturday.

    According to TalkSPORT, Becks will be offered an ambassadorial role should the Qatari bidder replaces the Glazers.

    Taking the Mc

    Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has slammed manager Erik ten Hag's comment on Scott McTominay after he saved the team against Brentford.

    Ten Hag said: "Every player has a price but he has a big value, sporting and also economic. I want to have a player like Scott McTominay in the squad. He is Manchester United in every faith.

    "Every minute he will fight for the match. He is Manchester United in everything in his heart. When you are coming on and giving this to the team it tells a lot.”

    Schmeichel responded: "He’s got the ability to do that. I don’t understand what coaches are doing. Scott McTominay was up for sale all summer and I don’t understand that.

    "He’s a fantastic player, you need utility players. You need players that can play different positions, that can come from the bench and change the course of the game and he’s definitely one of them.

    "You bring in players and you sit there with big question marks, why is that player there?."

    Roo the day

    Former Premier League ace Chris Sutton is not convinced that Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney will be the best managerial appointment for Birmingham.

    Why would you get rid of someone who's successful?

    It's not like – with respect to Wayne Rooney, great playing career – they're bringing in a world beater of a manager.

    He's still a rookie in managerial terms, isn't he? On the face of it, it does seem like madness to sack John Eustace when the club are doing well.

    And essentially, what does it do? It puts a hell of a lot more pressure on the owners making that decision.

    Gaz's mega pay day

    Manchester United legend Gary Neville has rented out the whole of his five star Stock Exchange Hotel.

    That is according to SunSport's Simon Boyle.

    Madonna has booked the entire place while she rehearses for her forthcoming tour.

    And given that the hotel is a huge gaff, which Neville owns a substantial stake in alongside his old team-mate Ryan Giggs, that sounds like a hefty pay day.
