Juventus have had to put their interest in Manchester United exile Jadon Sancho on hold because of one key reason, reports in Italy have claimed. 

Sancho is searching for an escape route out of Old Trafford following his public fallout with Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag, who has banished him from the group and axed him from first team plans this season.

Juventus offered hope of refuge after expressing interest in the English winger ahead of the January transfer window, but it appears they have been forced to back out of talks.

According to Tuttosport, Sancho is simply too expensive for the Serie A giants, given they will be dealing with a significantly lower transfer budget over the winter window.

Juventus are also targeting star Sassuolo winger Domenico Berardi, who has impressed with seven goals and three assists so far this season in Serie A.

It is believed, however, that Sassuolo will only consider selling their superstar at the end of the campaign, seeing as they are currently only five points above the relegation zone.

Ukraine and Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Georgiy Sudakov has also been identified as a cheaper alternative to Sancho ahead of January.

The Italian side are hoping to lure Sudakov for a modest fee of £21million, and Juventus director Cristiano Giuntoli is understood to be a fan after watching him during Italy’s 0-0 stalemate with Ukraine last month.

Meanwhile, reports have circled this week of Ten Hag having reportedly lost half the dressing room at Manchester United, with several senior players upset following his handling of Sancho in recent months.

It led to United banning several high-profile journalists from Ten Hag’s press conference on Tuesday, building up to Wednesday’s crunch clash with Chelsea at Old Trafford. 

Ten Hag’s side sit seventh in the Premier League table and five points off the top four heading into their next match against the Blues.

United also sit bottom of Group A in the Champions League with one match to go and know they must beat Bayern Munich to have any chance of making the knock-out stages.  

The Red Devils will be keen to fetch as much as possible for Sancho in January, given that the former Borussia Dortmund star signed for £73m just two years ago.
