Borussia Dortmund are preparing to make a loan offer for Manchester United attacker Sancho when the winter transfer window opens.
Due to his disagreement with head coach Erik ten Hag, the 23-year-old has not played for the Red Devils since the Premier League match against Nottingham Forest on August 26.
Sancho was notably absent from the team list for the Arsenal match on September 3, with Ten Hag suggesting that the forward was left out due to some bad performances in training.
The ex-Manchester City teenager resorted to social media to refute his manager’s version of events, and he has since been dropped from the club’s first-team squad.
Sancho is expected to be absent again against Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday, and it appears that he has played his final game for the club.
An apology was supposedly all that was required to bring Ten Hag back into the fold, but the harm has now been done, according to ESPN.
Borussia Dortmund to make January bid for Ex-Forward
According to the source, even if Sancho changed his mind at this point, it would’mean very little,’ as the forward is largely expected to leave when the January transfer market opens.
Juventus and Barcelona are also in links with the Englishman, with a loan exit the most likely scenario at the start of 2024.
Dortmund, on the other hand, is reportedly making a move for Sancho, with the Bundesliga club poised to offer him the chance to return to the club on loan for the second half of the season.
Despite rumours of dressing-room strife, Sancho is said to have ‘very little support’ from senior Manchester United players, and the club is willing to absorb a ‘financial damage’ in January.
Between 2017 and 2021, the attacker made 137 appearances for Dortmund, scoring 50 goals and registering 64 assists.
His form in Germany made him one of the most sought-after attackers in the world. However, the former Watford teenager has struggled to make an impact at Man United.
In 82 games for the Red Devils, Sancho has only scored 12 goals and six assists, and he was also absent for a stretch near the end of last year due to a personal issue.
