Sir Jim Ratcliffe takes control of Jadon Sancho case with Man United exit ‘on his terms’



| Last Updated:


Sir Jim Ratcliffe has taken control of the situation surrounding Jadon Sancho, with the player now only departing Manchester United on Ratcliffe’s terms.

Manchester United will be selling Jadon Sancho this summer after a spat saw him fall out with manager Erik ten Hag at the beginning of the current season surrounding claims about poor training.

Ten Hag explained that he had dropped the English winger for poor training performances, with Sancho claiming this was a lie and that he was being scapegoated for poor performances by the team.

Sancho has since recommenced his career away from Old Trafford at Borussia Dortmund, where he is slowly starting to rebuild his form after over four months without playing any competitive fixtures.

With United needing to raise funds through sales this summer, Sancho is one of the players top of the list primed for a permanent transfer, but INEOS have made their stance surrounding Sancho clear.

Although players wanting to move clubs often decrease their value, INEOS are adamant that Sancho will only leave “on their terms”, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

This signals a change of plans from INEOS, who were originally said to be open to discussing with Dortmund what best suits them for Sancho’s future – this may make his departure more difficult.

“With the way we’re hearing that INEOS are working, if Jadon Sancho is to go, they are going to want it done on their terms,” Sheth told GiveMeSport.

“INEOS will also want to make sure they avoid what seems to be happening in the past 10 years or so at Manchester United, where they haven’t been able to sell very well.

“This is a guy who is still in his early 20s, but it hasn’t worked out for him at Manchester United. There is £73million worth of investment, so they are going to want to recoup quite a bit of that if they are going to let him go.”

United are looking to raise over £100 million in sales this summer through Sancho and Greenwood. The club are also open to offers for Antony and others such as Harry Maguire and Christian Eriksen.

With Ten Hag’s squad needing a revamp, INEOS have bold and ambitious plans for the window, but they need to work within the current profit and sustainability rules.
