Why Jadon Sancho is a 'doubt' for Manchester United vs Atletico Madrid clash

Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho could miss today’s friendly game against Atletico Madrid due to lack of fitness.

Man United’s squad travelled to Oslo on Friday ahead of their Saturday’s pre-season friendly against Atletico. And with hopes of maintaining their unbeaten run, having won three games and drew one.

Sancho, who travelled with his team-mates to Oslo, is reported as a doubt for the friendly as he’s not ‘quite’ fit for the clash, per Fredrik A. Filtvedt.

The England international has been one of Erik ten Hag‘s top performers in their ongoing pre-season, having started in all four games.

Should Jadon Sancho fail to be fit for the encounter, Erik ten Hag would likely start Anthony Elanga in his place alongside Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Cristiano Ronaldo did not travel with his team-mates despite returning to Manchester early this week.
