Jadon Sancho has not been included in Manchester United's squad that is set to partake in two friendlies in Spain.

Erik ten Hag's side are due to face off against Cadiz and Real Betis next week in order ready the team for the post-World Cup return of the Premier League.

Sancho missed four games prior to the mid-season World Cup break with an unspecified illness and, in a statement released on Sunday, the club confirmed that the forward is taking part in an individual training programme:

“Jadon Sancho is continuing his individual training programme as part of a process to get back to his highest level. The club is fully supporting him in this.”

The former Borussia Dortmund player wasn't included in Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad this winter, having been largely out of favour with the Three Lions coach in recent years.

In better injury news for Man Utd, the club confirmed that full-backs Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon Williams are fit enough to travel to Spain, stating: "Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon Williams were both welcome inclusions in the squad as they work their way back to fitness."

Following the friendlies with Cadiz and Real Betis, the Red Devils will kickstart their domestic campaign with a Carabao Cup clash against Burnley on 21st December.
