Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is refusing to budge over his treatment of Jadon Sancho.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe is expected to attempt to mend the relationship between the pair once his 25% investment in the club is confirmed.
Ratcliffe, 71, feels Sancho – a £72m signing from Dortmund – is too big an investment to simply cast aside and he wants the pair to come to a resolution.
While Sancho has since removed the post, he has refused to apologise and still feels he has been made a ‘scapegoat’ by Ten Hag.
ESPN claim Ten Hag is unmoved by Ratcliffe’s stance and will not back down until Sancho apologises.
Ten Hag insists he must maintain control over the squad and though his treatment of Sancho could appear harsh from the outside, internally he retains support.
Juventus have shown interest in the playmaker, but will attempt to sign him on loan rather than a permanent deal.
Should Sancho fail to apologise, United will look to sell him in January.
