Jadon Sancho returns to Manchester United first-team training as ‘positive progress’ made
Manchester United star and England international Jadon Sancho is back in training for the Red Devils, having trained individually for some time now, as reported by Andy Mitten for The Athletic (Subscription Required) via transfer guru Fabrizio Romano on Twitter.
The 22-year-old initially spent time in the Netherlands on an individual training program while the 2022 World Cup was ongoing. He has now returned to full first-team training.
The Red Devils’ coaching staff believe the forward has made ‘positive progress’ over recent weeks. Erik ten Hag is keen on having the winger back in the team as soon as possible.
Sancho joined the Old Trafford side from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2021. BVB had signed him from Manchester City. In Germany, the youngster developed into one of the best attacking players.
However, the England international could not replicate that form in his debut season at United. The 22-year-old struggled to make a mark in the English top flight in the previous campaign.
With the arrival of the Dutch manager, Sancho seemed to have found his feet at the start. During pre-season and the early part of the camping, the 22-year-old made significant contributions up front.
Unfortunately, the England international has once again struggled to make an impact on a consistent basis. On the other hand, the performances of other forwards have dwindled the former Dortmund star’s game time.
Antony has been decent on the right wing for United. Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho have also been in fine form on the left-hand side of our attack.

Sancho has not featured for the Red Devils since the 1-1 draw against Chelsea in the Premier League. At the moment, we are alive in all four competitions. Hopefully, the time off will have helped the 22-year-old get back to his best.
