Jadon Sancho’s situation at Old Trafford is getting more and more convoluted as the days go on following his public rebuttal to Erik ten Hag’s comments on the winger’s training performances.

The pair have seemingly had a fallout and you wonder if their relationship is at all salvageable at this point.

The Dutchman is a man who believes in hierarchy and authority so for Sancho, you wonder if there is any way back for the 23-year-old.

The pair have had a complicated relationship and, according to Andy Mitten speaking on The Athletic’s Talk Of The Devils Podcast, United were open to selling Sancho.

United’s summer stance on Sancho

As mentioned, had United received an offer deemed acceptable for the former Borussia Dortmund winger, then they would have been happy to sell the former Manchester City academy player.

Speaking on the podcast, Mitten said: “United would have sold Sancho this summer if a bid significant enough would have arrived at United’s doorstep but that wasn’t forthcoming this summer.”

However, despite this, Erik ten Hag and Sancho, according to Mitten, have a very good relationship and the Dutchman was also very accommodating to the forward last season, who was struggling in the first few months of the season.

“I know, for a fact, that Ten Hag has been very empathetic with him,” Mitten said. “The way he (Ten Hag) dealt with Sancho is certainly not the actions of someone who he doesn’t believe in.”

The pair now seem to be embroiled in controversy and one that will seemingly run and run until the club football returns next week.

Would United sell him now

It does seem hard to imagine just where Sancho would go considering the Saudi transfer window closes tonight and the transfer window in Turkey also closes soon.

United would seemingly be light in the attacking positions were Sancho to be sold, although this may well open the door for Facundo Pellistri and Alejandro Garnacho to receive more opportunities in the front line.

The situation between Sancho and Ten Hag will surely rumble on throughout the international break but you do wonder what the future holds for the Englishman who was once seen as a player who could revolutionise United’s attack.
