Man City star Erling Haaland sends Jadon Sancho message ahead of Borussia Dortmund return



| Last Updated:


Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has sent a message to former teammate Jadon Sancho ahead of a loan return to Borussia Dortmund from Manchester United.

Sancho, 23, has been banished from the Manchester United first-team squad by Erik ten Hag since his public statement following the club’s defeat to Arsenal in September last year.

The winger accused his manager of ‘scapegoating’ him after Ten Hag stated that Sancho was not in the matchday squad due to his training performance ahead of the game.

Since then, Sancho has been training with the youth teams after refusing to apologise to the Dutchman and is now set to leave the club on a loan deal in the January transfer window.

The player, who signed from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2021 for £73 million, will be returning to the German club for six months.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Sancho is pushing for the deal to go through as soon as possible and that it is ‘more than concrete’ at this stage.

Sancho scored 50 goals and registered 64 assists in 137 games for Dortmund and struck up a partnership with Erling Halaand during his time in Germany.

The Norwegian no.9 would go on to move to United’s rivals Manchester City and be a key part of their Treble winning side last term.

The pair still have a good relationship, and Haaland has shared a message ahead of his ex-teammate’s return to Signal Iduna Park.

Taking to Instagram, Halaand shared an image of himself and Sancho on his story. The original image posted by 433 was captioned ‘Once upon a time at BVB’ with images of Sancho, Haaland and Real Madrid maestro Jude Bellingham.

Haaland re-shared the image of him and Sancho together and added his own caption saying, ‘Proper ball that,’ with a heart-face emoji to follow.

The City striker will likely be keeping a keen eye on his former club now close friend Sancho is heading back there.

Meanwhile, Sancho will be looking to get back to playing football after a four-month outlay due to his spat with Ten Hag.
