Manchester United is planning to hold discussions with Jadon Sancho before making a decision on his future with the club. Sancho has been absent from United’s lineup since August, following a public dispute with manager Erik ten Hag.

The 24-year-old winger was loaned to his former club Borussia Dortmund in January, where he played a pivotal role in helping the Bundesliga team reach the Champions League final. Dortmund, however, fell short against Real Madrid, losing 2-0 on Saturday.

United aims to resolve Sancho’s situation by speaking directly with him before making any definitive moves this summer. According to a source, technical director Jason Wilcox and director of football negotiations Matt Hargreaves will engage with Sancho and his representatives ahead of the pre-season training commencement.

Players who are not involved in international tournaments are expected to return to United in July, with their first friendly scheduled against Rosenborg in Norway on July 15.

A source close to the situation indicated that a transfer remains the most probable outcome. However, Sancho’s significant market value and high wages present challenges for a permanent transfer. Borussia Dortmund is interested in re-signing the England forward but prefers negotiating another loan deal. Sancho, who has a contract with United until 2026, is reportedly open to the idea of returning to Dortmund.

During this period, Wilcox and Hargreaves are managing United’s summer transfer activities while the club finalizes the appointment of Dan Ashworth as their new sporting director. The process of bringing Ashworth on board has encountered delays due to Newcastle United’s compensation demands exceeding £20 million.

United’s recruitment team has identified several potential targets to enhance various positions within the squad, with priorities being a centre-back, central midfielder, and striker. However, sources revealed to ESPN that the club acknowledges that recruitment efforts “will not be up to full speed” until Ashworth assumes his new role.

Originally, United had hoped to have the 53-year-old in place before the summer, but it now appears his arrival may be postponed until after the transfer window. Ashworth, who previously worked for the FA and Brighton, has been on gardening leave since February 19 after notifying Newcastle of his intention to join United.

As United prepares for the upcoming season, the resolution of Sancho’s future will be a critical factor in their overall strategy. The club’s management is keen to address this matter early to ensure they make the best possible decision for both the player and the team’s future.
