Borussia Dortmund sanction “secret” Jadon Sancho plan, involves Man United swap deal



| Last Updated:


Borussia Dortmund are engaging in a “secret” plan for Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho, according to reports from Germany.

Jadon Sancho is spending the rest of the 2023/24 season on loan at Borussia Dortmund after Erik ten Hag banned him from the Manchester United squad for calling the Dutch manager a liar in the public eye.

Sancho had been dropped from the squad to face Arsenal. When Ten Hag was asked why, he explained that it was due to poor training performances. However, Sancho claimed after the game that this was a lie and that he was being scapegoated for the team’s poor performances.

Sancho recently scored his first goal back in black and yellow in a 2-1 win over Werder Bremen, and Dortmund are now planning a “secret” mission to retain him for longer than just the end of this season.

This is according to the German outlet BILD, who claim that Dortmund are exploring two options – either retaining him on loan for a further season, or offering United a player swap.

With United looking to sign a striker this summer, it is suggested that Dortmund may offer Dutch striker Donyell Malen in return for Sancho.

Speaking about Sancho’s goal on the weekend, Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl was full of praise for the United loanee.

“Doing something like that, you can, of course, see what a great footballer he is,” he told reporters. “You can see how he can make a difference, especially in one-on-one situations.

“Everyone is happy for Jadon because they saw how hard he was working and how willing he was to help the team. Goals help. He’s had one or two assists before, but this goal will help him and give him a boost.

“You should not forget that he didn’t play for a long time. It’s like when a player has a cruciate ligament injury and is out for a long time. We need him, and we will again on Wednesday and for the coming weeks.”
