Nottingham Forest have today been identified as a potential destination for Manchester United outcast Jadon Sancho.

The 23-year-old has been the subject of a fallout with boss Erik Ten Hag after the winger posted a statement on social media claiming he has been the ‘scapegoat‘ during his time at Old Trafford.

According to journalist Samuel Luckhurst, Steve Cooper’s side and Borussia Dortmund have been named as potential options for Sancho.

Ten Hag has ordered the former Dortmund man to train alone after refusing to apologise over his comments, with his United career potentially already over after just two years at the club.

A potential reunion for Sancho and Cooper?

Sancho played under Cooper for England U17, with the youngster still having a great relationship with the now Forest boss.

Cooper is still said to be a massive fan of the winger, with Sancho potentially following in Callum Hudson-Odoi’s footsteps in joining the Reds to try and get his career back on track.

A troubled United played heading to the City Ground isn’t unheard of, with Jesse Lingard also making the move last summer.

Like Lingard, Sancho’s attitude is one of the biggest issues he has stopping him from being a success at the Red Devils.

Sancho heading to Forest would also see him reunited with Anthony Elanga, who joined the Reds for £15m in the summer.

It has to be said, that a deal for Sancho would be extremely unlikely, but assuming he doesn’t make up with Ten Hag he could prove to be a sensational option should Forest wish to pursue the 23-year-old
