Borussia Dortmund director confirms latest Jadon Sancho development, it was expected



| Last Updated:


Borussia Dortmund’s sporting director has confirmed the club’s latest plans for Jadon Sancho, with the development expected for Manchester United.

Sancho, 24, has been enjoying his football back in Germany since he rejoined Borussia Dortmund on loan in the January transfer window.

The United winger was exiled from Erik ten Hag’s first-team squad in September after he sent out a social media post accusing the Dutchman of lying and labelling himself a scapegoat.

Now, the 24-year-old is in the Champions League semi-final with Dortmund, going into the second leg against Paris-Saint Germain with a 1-0 lead.

Borussia Dortmund’s plans

According to Sky Germany, the Bundesliga club wants to keep Sancho next season, but a permanent deal is currently unlikely, with Dortmund unable to afford the winger’s price tag.

The report explained that Dortmund have a plan of potentially loaning Sancho for another year. Other rumours have suggested that an obligation-to-buy clause could be included in an offer.

Dortmund also hope that Sancho will clearly decide that he wants to rejoin them, which will ‘help facilitate talks with United.

Speaking to Welt about Sancho’s future, sporting director Sebastian Kehl said: “His qualities don’t need to be described. He has regained his smile in the six months with us.

We will try everything. But Manchester United also sees how well he is playing at the moment. Maybe they also want to sell him for profit. Or bring him back.”

It was expected

Despite Dortmund’s official X account claiming that they “never doubted” Sancho in a dig to United, it always seemed clear that they wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to sign him on a permanent deal.

Sancho’s failures at Old Trafford were not all his fault. Yet, United must still commend a respectable fee for the player, and Dortmund will either have to pay up (or include an obligation to buy), or United will look elsewhere.

A return to United for Sancho seems far-fetched right now, even if Ten Hag ends up leaving the club. Stranger things have happened in football, though.
