The return of Jadon Sancho on loan has sparked negotiations between Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United.
Sancho made a name for himself as one of the most sought-after young prospects in international football before leaving for Old Trafford in a transaction reportedly worth $105 million. The Bundesliga team is hoping that Sancho will return to the Bundesliga.
What percentage of Sancho’s salary—which is estimated to be worth about $340,000 per week—Borussia Dortmund is able to pay will be a key component in the outcome of club-to-club discussions. Even the Westfalenstadion’s greatest earners are reportedly paid close to half of that sum.
However, Dortmund has been toying with the idea of bringing Sancho back for a while. According to sources close to CBS Sports, the two teams had discussed a loan in the summer, but the agreement collapsed because of United’s demands for loan fees. This is the same reason why Al-Ettifaq’s deadline-day raid was unsuccessful.
It’s clear that Sancho would find it appealing to return to Dortmund.
He played in 92 games throughout his final three seasons in the Bundesliga, scoring 37 goals and dishing out 41 assists. In 2021, he won the DFB Pokal and was twice selected to Germany’s team of the season.During his 82 appearances in all competitions, he has scored 12 goals, but his first three seasons in England have been far more difficult due to three different managers.
With his comments that he had “been made a scapegoat for a long time” in response to Ten Hag’s admission that he had not been included in the squad for a 3-1 loss to Arsenal because of subpar performances in training, Sancho basically ended his Manchester United career. It was then directed that he apologise to the manager. He was not selected for a squad after failing to meet the requirements, and he was excluded from first team training.
Although they are not anticipated to compete with Dortmund this month, Saudi Arabian clubs, whether or not they are owned by the Public Investment Fund, would be open to making a play for the 23-year-old if he were still available in the summer.
