Rio Ferdinand calls for 'clarity' on Jadon Sancho's future at Manchester United, saying the Red Devils need a winger, despite Erik ten Hag not using the England star since October
Rio Ferdinand wants 'clarity' over Jadon Sancho's future at Manchester United, with the England winger being left out of Erik ten Hag's plans since October.
former United and England defender Ferdinand said he wanted the situation around Sancho's future to be cleared up, with the player missing out on Man United's mid-season training camp in Spain to improve his fitness on his own accord.

Ferdinand, 44, said: 'Jadon Sancho is an interesting one. He’s gone away and he’s doing personal training somewhere. I don’t know what’s happened or what’s behind all this. I don’t know what it is. Is he not fit or is it mental? What are they seeing at United? It would be nice to get that clarity.
'Listen, Jadon Sancho is a south London boy so I care about him and want him to do well. But he hasn’t hit the ground running at Manchester United, for whatever reason. I don’t know why.'
Sancho joined Man United in the summer of 2021, after four successful years in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund.

Sancho registered just five goals and three assists during his debut season at Old Trafford in 2021-22, before the problems getting into the side under ten Hag in the current campaign.
Ferdinand said: 'United actually need him right now, they need another player because the depth on the bench isn’t great. Sancho would add to that but he needs to come back and be the Sancho we saw at Dortmund, the Sancho that got people off their seats.
'I watched an old video of Sancho the other day and he was tearing it up against Barcelona at the Nou Camp. That’s the Sancho I expected to see at United. I wanted him to come to the Theatre of Dreams and say: ‘This is my home, I’m going to own this place’.

'We just haven’t seen that yet and it’s actually grating on me as to why. I need to know why.'
With the transfer window open, Sancho could look to go elsewhere if he is surplus to Man United's plans, or else he could try to regain his place with ten Hag's squad, who play Bournemouth in the Premier League and Everton in the FA Cup in the coming week.
