Numerous rumors claim that Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund have finalized an agreement for Jadon Sancho to go on loan.
Sancho and manager Erik ten Hag had a public falling out, which resulted in Sancho being sidelined for nearly the whole 2023–24 season.
The winger is expected to depart United during the January transfer window and has declined to apologize to Ten Hag for responding angrily to the manager’s remarks regarding his level of training.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Sancho’s former team, Dortmund, has now agreed to take him on loan from United for the rest of the season. Later on Wednesday, he will travel for a medical examination.
While Dortmund has agreed to pay €4 million as part of the deal, United will still pay a portion of Sancho’s salary. Additionally, the deal will not include a buyout option.
On January 2, a number of prominent German publications reported that Sancho and United were in negotiations, which heightened rumors about his potential return to Dortmund.
Though discussions concerning the finer points of the arrangement continued into this week, a deal was not expected to be reached swiftly, and the two teams have just now reached an understanding.
After four successful years on their roster (from 2017 to 2021), during which he scored 50 goals in 137 games, Sancho is returning to Dortmund. His impressive performance earned him a £73 million transfer to United, where he has mostly fallen short of expectations.
