are confident can become one of the club’s most important players playing under Erik ten Hag.

While plenty of changes are expected at Old Trafford this summer, ten Hag has underlined his intention to put the work in with the current United stars who underperformed last season.

Ten Hag has warned his squad he expects them to ‘co-operate’ and buy into his ‘total high-pressing’ style of football with belief around Old Trafford that Sancho is one of the players who will benefit most from the Dutchman’s clearly defined style of play.

After excelling in Germany, Sancho returned to English football last summer in a £72million deal from Borussia Dortmund. The England international finished the 2021-22 season with five goals and three assists to his name.

While he provided glimpses of his talent, United believe Sancho will benefit from the structure ten Hag will implement, according to , with the club confident he has the tools to become a ‘bona fide star’ under the new manager.

United harbour similar hopes for Marcus Rashford following what is widely regarded as his worst season for the club.

The report claims Rashford’s miserable campaign has been attributed to ‘confidence, mood and outlook’.

But United are confident that if the England international commits fully to the new manager’s methods then he will ‘benefit enormously’ from ten Hag’s coaching next season.

There had been speculation Rashford might need to leave the club to get his career back on track, but recent reports claim that the forward wants to stay and fight for his place under Ten Hag.
