Manchester United could sell Jadon Sancho and Donny van de Beek to Juventus for just £26m, according to a report.

Sancho is widely expected to leave Old Trafford in January following his well-documented fallout with manager Erik ten Hag.

The 23-year-old stated that he had been made a "scapegoat" after Ten Hag claimed that poor performances in training were behind the Englishman's absence for a 3-1 defeat at Arsenal in September.

Sancho has since been exiled from Man United's first-team squad and training facilities after refusing to apologise to Ten Hag, and a mid-season departure seems to be the most likely outcome for the winger.

Van de Beek, meanwhile, has failed to established himself as a first-team regular since the arrival of Ten Hag in the summer of 2022, and the midfielder recently admitted that he needs to leave the Red Devils for the sake of his career.

The 26-year-old started just two games for Man United in all competitions last season before his campaign was curtailed in January due to a serious knee injury, and he has since featured for just 21 minutes across two appearances this term.

A recent report claims that Serie A giants Juventus are lining up a double swoop for Sancho and Van de Beek in the January transfer window.

According to The Sun, who refer to reports from ESPN and Corriere dello Sport, Man United are ready to accept suitable bids for the duo, and an offer of £26m would be enough to tempt Ten Hag to sell.

It is thought that the bulk of that figure would lure Sancho to Turin, while Juve could "unlock" the prospect of recruiting Van de Beek without paying an initial fee.

The departure of both players for such a cut-price fee would see Man United make a significant loss on the pair who moved to Old Trafford for a combined fee of around £115m.

Sancho joined Man United from Borussia Dortmund in July 2021 for a reported £75m, while Van de Beek completed a £40m transfer to the red side of Manchester from Ajax a year earlier.

Juventus have been credited with an interest in a number of midfielders including Van de Beek as they are having to cope without suspended duo Paul Pogba and Nicolo Fagioli.

The Italian outfit are also said to be in the market for a new attacker amid uncertainty over the futures of Samuel Iling-Junior and Federico Chiesa, who have both been linked with moves to the Premier League.

As well as Juve, clubs in Saudi Arabia have been linked with Sancho, while Van De Beek has allegedly attracted interest from Galatasaray, Newcastle United and Inter Milan.
