Jadon Sancho: Manchester United trying to finalise deal for winger’s return to Borussia Dortmund


Manchester United are trying to finalise the terms of Jadon Sancho’s loan move back to Borussia Dortmund.

BBC Sport understands an agreement has been reached between the two clubs that would allow Sancho to re-join his old club for the rest of the season.

However, there are contractual and financial issues around the deal that still require tidying up.

The 23-year-old winger completed a £73m move to Old Trafford from Dortmund in July 2021.

However, he has not played for United since 26 August after falling out with manager Erik ten Hag and has been training away from the first team since September.

The relationship between Sancho and Ten Hag hit the rocks after the England international was omitted from the squad for September’s defeat at Arsenal, with the Dutchman stating it was due to his performance in training.

Sancho rejected those claims and said on social media that he was being made a “scapegoat” and later refused to apologise for his comments, leading to his exile.

Since joining United, Sancho has struggled for consistent form – he has scored nine league goals and provided just six assists in his 58 appearances.

Dortmund, who sit fifth in the Bundesliga, are keen for Sancho to join them on their current mid-season training camp in Marbella.

The club will play friendly fixtures against AZ Alkmaar on 6 January and Standard Liege on 9 January before returning to Germany and resuming their league campaign at Darmstadt on 13 January.
