Jadon Sancho could return to Borussia Dortmund on loan as Bundesliga club and Manchester United work on deal

Borussia Dortmund are working on a deal with Manchester United to re-sign Jadon Sancho on loan.

England forward Sancho has been banished by Man United since a social media attack on manager Erik ten Hag in September after the Dutchman publicly criticised his performance level in training.

The Red Devils won the race to sign the former Manchester City starlet, paying Dortmund £73million for his services in July 2021.

It was a massive coup for Man United as they beat a number of top European clubs to his signature, however, Sancho’s spell at Old Trafford has been underwhelming.

Having developed a reputation for getting among the goals and assists in Germany, Sancho has struggled in that department with just 12 goals and six assists in 82 appearances for Man United.

He took over two months away from football last season, with issues surrounding his mental health being cited. Sancho was backed by manager Ten Hag, but their relationship deteriorated early this campaign.

Following Man United’s 3-1 defeat at Arsenal in September, Ten Hag told journalists Sancho was left out of the squad altogether due to his performance level in training not being high enough.

Hours later Sancho issued a furious denial of Ten Hag’s claims on social media, arguing the Dutchman was making him a scapegoat. Sancho refused to apologise for his outburst, leading to him being banished from the first team.

The 23-year-old has been tipped to leave Man United, with the player being linked with a lucrative transfer to Saudi Arabia. However, it appears his former club in Dortmund will relieve Sancho from his Old Trafford nightmare, albeit for a temporary period.
