Jadon Sancho: Borussia Dortmund CEO confirms loan talks

Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has confirmed that talks with Manchester United about the loan return of Jadon Sancho are ongoing.

Following his departure from Manchester City in 2017, the Bundesliga giants gave the winger a platform to showcase his talent, and he became one of Europe’s most sought-after players while wearing the yellow jersey.

Sancho had a direct hand in 114 goals in 137 games for Borussia Dortmund, scoring 50 and assisting 64, and the German club made a tidy profit when he was sold to Manchester United for £73 million in 2021.

However, the 23-year-old failed to replicate his brilliant Bundesliga form in the Premier League and has been out of the first-team picture since September due to a rift with Erik ten Hag.

Both Manchester United and Sancho are desperate to get the winger out of Old Trafford, and despite previous reports that Juventus were in the lead, Dortmund are now in pole position to lure him away from the Theatre of Dreams.

The two clubs have yet to reach a full agreement, but Watzke, who will step down in 2025, has revealed that talks about a temporary reunion are ongoing.

“We are definitely in talks to sign Jadon Sancho.” We’d like to sign him on a loan basis. That is not a secret. “However, we are not yet ready to announce a completed transaction,” Watzke is quoted as saying by Fabrizio Romano.

Both Sancho and Dortmund head coach Edin Terzic are eager to complete a deal in the coming days, and it was reported last week that a broad agreement had been reached to return the Englishman to the Signal Iduna Park.

Jadon Sancho to return to Dortmund?

The Red Devils and BVB are also said to have agreed on a salary structure, but there are still a few contractual issues to work out before Sancho can return to Dortmund.

Sancho had just 12 goals and six assists in 82 games for Ten Hag’s side in all competitions prior to his exile from the first team, and he came off the bench in each of Man United’s first three Premier League games of the 2023-24 season.

Ten Hag, on the other hand, left Sancho out of his matchday squad for their 3-1 loss to Arsenal in early September, citing poor performances from the attacker in training as the reason.

Sancho responded to the Dutchman’s version of events with an incredible social media post, claiming that he was made a “scapegoat” at Old Trafford, and little has been heard of the 23-year-old since.

Ten Hag allegedly would have been willing to re-integrate Sancho into the first team if he had apologized quickly, but it is now believed that too much time has passed for burned bridges to be rebuilt.

Sancho is still under contract at Manchester United until 2026, with a 12-month extension option, and his future beyond the end of the 2023-24 season is uncertain.

The England international could become the second Red Devils player to join the Bundesliga this month, as Eintracht Frankfurt has signed Donny van de Beek on a season-long loan.
