Mourinho explains Man Utd problem amid Jadon Sancho’s imminent arrival

Jose Mourinho believes the arrival of Jadon Sancho at Old Trafford could have a negative impact on Mason Greenwood’s progression at the club.

Sancho underwent his medical with Manchester United on Tuesday and they are expected to complete their £73.1m deal to sign the Dortmund star this week.

Sancho has been Solskjaer’s number one target to bolster the Red devils’ right flank this summer transfer window.

And the winger’s versatility means he will be competing for a place in United’s attack with Martial, Dan James, Rashford and Greenwood.

Mourinho believes Greenwood is capable of making next year’s World Cup squad but is concerned the player could be ‘hidden’ due to the competition at United.

‘The situation at Manchester United will be interesting from an England point of view,’ Mourinho told The Sun.

‘Jadon Sancho has gone to United, Marcus Rashford is also there and Mason Greenwood is a good example of a player who wasn’t in this squad but can be in Qatar, when he will be much more mature and has a good possibility of being selected.

‘Three young England players in one club, three with potential to play in the national team.

‘Which one will have an amazing season but which one could be hidden, not starting many matches because of the coach’s decision? Greenwood has the talent to be there.’

Mourinho added: ‘England are not in a bad place at all.

‘You can look at the players’ ages from this summer’s squad and there isn’t one player who you can say won’t be at  the next World Cup because of his age.

‘I would even say that more than 50 per cent of this team will have the opportunity to play two or three Euros and two or three World Cups.’
