Joe Cole has extended an offer of help and guidance to Jadon Sancho, emphasizing the need for nurturing the young talent. However, Cole doesn’t foresee a future for Sancho at Manchester United given the circumstances.
Sancho has been sidelined at Old Trafford following a public dispute with manager Erik ten Hag and has not featured in a match since August.
Manchester United is reportedly open to accepting offers for the 23-year-old in the upcoming January transfer window, potentially at a reduced price compared to the £73 million they paid to acquire him from Borussia Dortmund in 2021.
While there remains a possibility for Sancho to return to the Manchester United lineup under Ten Hag, Cole remains skeptical that this will happen.
Joe Cole, the former Chelsea, West Ham, and England winger, admires Sancho’s immense talent and believes that the young player requires nurturing and maturity to reach his full potential.
In his view, resolving the situation would necessitate cooperation from both parties involved. However, it appears increasingly unlikely that Sancho will reconcile with Ten Hag, as he has been removed from a crucial WhatsApp group that provides vital information to the first-team squad.
Some of his United teammates have encouraged Sancho to apologize to Ten Hag, which could pave the way for his return to the squad. Nevertheless, Sancho has yet to make an apology and appears to be standing firm on his position.
