Two reasons why Borussia Dortmund have no buy option for Jadon Sancho



| Last Updated:


Manchester United are not including any potential buy option in Jadon Sancho’s six-month loan to Borussia Dortmund.

Jadon Sancho is heading to his former club Dortmund for the remainder of the season after he was banished from Erik ten Hag‘s squad due to a public spat.

Dortmund and Manchester United will be sharing payment of his salary for the remainder of the season, with the Bundesliga club set to fork out around £3-4 million for the overall deal, which includes a loan fee.

Although Sancho is expected to leave United permanently in the summer with little way back for him at Old Trafford, the club have refused to add any form of buy option for Dortmund.

According to Fabrizio Romano, United are against a buy option for two reasons, with one being that the club want to give themselves time to reassess Sancho’s situation in the summer, once he has had time to play football again.

The other is that United believe that Sancho’s value in the current market is not high, and should he be sold permanently, they will want to maximise how much they can fetch for him.

Sancho signed for United in 2021 for £75 million but has failed to make the impact many expected, scoring just 12 goals and providing six assists in 82 appearances across three seasons.

With United needing money, they will want to make sure they can flog Sancho for as much as possible in the summer, and if he has a positive six months on loan at Dortmund, this could greatly increase his value.

Sancho has not played professional football since the end of August.
