Manchester City will not be taking up the option to match any offers for Jadon Sancho when a £100million bidding war for the England star kicks-off in the New Year.

City have first refusal on the teenage winger as part of the £8million deal that took Sancho to Germany in the summer of 2017.

But Sunday Mirror Sport understands the Premier League champions have no interest in re-signing a player who went AWOL to force his departure from the Etihad.
