The England winger has struggled to make much of an impact at Old Trafford since his £73million transfer from Borussia Dortmund over the summer.
But former United goalkeeper Schmeichel believes 21-year-old Sancho will prosper in the team if he pays close attention to what the Portuguese superstar is doing.
He told the Seaman Says podcast: 'You're a young player in that squad, somebody like Jadon Sancho for instance.
'It's a big, big, big price tag for him and it feels a bit heavy for him at the moment.
'But he will look at this guy [Ronaldo] and he can say, "If I do something along those lines, I can be as good as him. I have all the basics, but I can be as good as him."
'That might take him two, three years to catch on to that but that then gives him maybe ten, 12 years after that.
'This is what Ronaldo gives. I was celebrating when I heard he was returning, running around like crazy in my garden even though I can't run. But I did.'
