Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has delivered his verdict on Jadon Sancho’s progress at the club and has urged manager Erik ten Hag to make key signings and let go of two players to help the young winger reach his full potential.
In recent interviews with TeamTalk, Manchester Evening News, and Metro, Scholes highlighted the importance of bolstering the squad to better support Sancho’s development. The former England international believes that signing a top-class defensive midfielder would help create more balance in the team and free Sancho to fully express his attacking prowess.
Scholes also expressed concern about the current squad depth and competition for places, suggesting that the exits of two players, whose identities he did not disclose, might be necessary to provide more opportunities for Sancho to shine. This would allow the England star to become a key figure at Old Trafford and further develop his skills.
Since joining Manchester United, Sancho has shown glimpses of his immense potential, but has struggled with consistency. Scholes, who won numerous trophies during his illustrious career at Old Trafford, is confident that the 22-year-old winger has what it takes to become a future star at the club.
With the summer transfer window fast approaching, it remains to be seen if manager Erik ten Hag will heed Scholes’ advice and make the necessary changes to help Sancho unlock his full potential. One thing is certain: the United faithful will be eagerly watching to see how the young talent develops in the coming seasons.
