Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s imminent control over Manchester United’s footballing matters, fueled by his substantial £1.3 billion investment for a 25% stake, could spark a clash with manager Erik ten Hag.

Reports suggest that the billionaire is keen on reintegrating Jadon Sancho, a move that may not align with the Dutch manager’s approach.

Recent revelations indicate that Ratcliffe is likely to push for Sancho’s return promptly. However, a potential standoff could arise as Ten Hag is resolute about not compromising his dressing room authority.

The manager insists that Sancho’s comeback hinges on a genuine apology from the 23-year-old.

Ten Hag’s preference, as per reports, leans towards Sancho seeking opportunities elsewhere, considering the strained relationship since the player’s £73 million arrival from Borussia Dortmund two years ago.

Interestingly, Ten Hag sees potential collaboration with Ratcliffe’s INEOS team.

Sancho, boasting nine goals and six assists in 58 Premier League appearances, has undergone solo training sessions and participated with the youth team in recent weeks.

The rift began this season when Ten Hag questioned Sancho’s training performances, leading to the player expressing frustration on social media, hinting at undisclosed reasons for his exclusion.

As Manchester United enters the international break on a positive domestic form, the Champions League campaign has presented challenges.

With one win from four matches, they find themselves at the bottom of Group A. The upcoming fixtures include a clash with Everton on November 26 and a European encounter against Galatasaray.
