Manchester United Prepares for Preseason Training for Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood

Manchester United is expecting both Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood to return to training if they have not left the club by the start of preseason, according to a source from ESPN. The club has set a deadline for players not involved in the European Championship or Copa América to report back to Carrington on July 8. Despite efforts to find new clubs for Sancho and Greenwood, they will be expected to join preseason training if they remain with United past the deadline.

Mason Greenwood, who has garnered interest from clubs like Lazio, Juventus, Napoli, and Marseille, could potentially train at Carrington for the first time since January 2022. This was when he was suspended following his arrest on serious charges, which were later dropped in February 2023. After restarting his career on loan at Getafe last season, Greenwood’s future at United remains uncertain.

Arrangements for Jadon Sancho’s potential return to United have not yet been finalized. The 24-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund after a fallout with manager Erik ten Hag. Despite being offered to clubs like Barcelona and Juventus, Sancho’s valuation of around £40 million ($51m) seems to be a stumbling block for potential suitors. United’s preference is to secure permanent departures for both Sancho and Greenwood, although they have not ruled out accepting loan offers.

In addition to player movements, Manchester United is also undergoing reshuffling in the coaching staff ahead of the new season. Talks with Go Ahead Eagles manager Rene Hake, who previously worked with Ten Hag at FC Twente, have progressed. The 52-year-old is poised to join the backroom team at Old Trafford. This restructuring also includes the anticipated appointment of former United striker and former PSV Eindhoven manager Ruud van Nistelrooy. The futures of current assistants Mitchell van der Gaag and Steve McClaren, who arrived in 2022, are now uncertain. Additionally, forwards coach Benni McCarthy is expected to depart as his contract is set to expire at the end of the month.

Manchester United is facing a period of transition as they prepare for preseason training with the uncertainty surrounding the futures of Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood. The club’s focus on securing permanent departures for the players reflects their commitment to building a competitive squad for the upcoming season. The coaching staff changes signal a new chapter for the team under the leadership of manager Erik ten Hag as they aim to achieve success on the pitch.
