Richard Arnold directs Man United Director of Football John Murtough to intervene and get resolution between Jadon Sancho and Erik ten Hag

Manchester United Chief Executive Officer Richard Arnold has directed Director of Football John Murtough to intervene in the spat between Jadon Sancho and Erik ten Hag, according to the Daily Mail.

There has been no sign of the duo resolving their issues, and the Red Devils chiefs are now looking to step in.

Sancho and Ten Hag held talks on Monday after the England international forward returned from his trip to the United States after the Arsenal game.

The Dutchman appeared to have sanctioned an exit for the 23-year-old after Sancho called him out on X for claiming he was dropped from the matchday squad against the Gunners due to his poor attitude in training.

The former Borussia Dortmund star has since deleted his post after meeting with Ten Hag, but it remains to be seen if he still has a place in the manager’s plans after taking his matter to the court of public opinion.

Man United were willing to sell Sancho when the transfer window in Saudi Arabia was still open last week, but the player and his representatives knocked back the approaches for him.

The Red Devils wanted £65 million for Sancho, but none of his suitors were willing to meet the asking price, and Arnold and Murtough are now hoping to find an amicable solution.

Ten Hag is a renowned disciplinarian and will be keen to lay down a marker once again by making the Englishman face the music.

Sancho’s punctuality has been an issue, and he was dropped from the starting XI against Tottenham Hotspur having initially been scheduled to start.

The forward could be nearing his exit at the Old Trafford club from the look of things, and whether the intervention of the CEO and Director of Football will yield a positive result is uncertain.
