Borussia Dortmund could make a move for Manchester United star Jadon Sancho
According to The Sun (h/t Manchester Evening News), German giants Borussia Dortmund, who are playing in this year’s Champions League, could make a move for Manchester United star Jadon Sancho in the January transfer window.
The 23-year-old moved to Old Trafford from the Westfalenstadion in 2021 but has failed to live up to expectations. He has a measly 12 goals and six assists from 82 appearances in red so far across all competitions.
Sancho is far from a regular under Erik ten Hag and has also not made much of the opportunities handed to him by the Dutchman. Their recent spat following the 3-1 humbling against Arsenal does little to improve his fortunes as well.
Dortmund remain keen on taking their former star back and even attempted to do so last January. Despite being rebuffed in their approach, the Germans could make a renewed approach in 2024.
However, a lot will depend on whether Sancho can patch things up with Erik ten Hag or if their relationship has reached a point of no return.
The player for his part is keen to succeed at Old Trafford. It now remains to be seen if recent events have changed his mind. Either way, the finances involved add another layer of intrigue to the potential move.
A loan deal to Dortmund could prove to be a win-win for all parties, providing space and time for all parties to come to an amicable long-term solution. But it will depend on whether Dortmund are ready to pay the chunk of Sancho’s salary, nearly £300,000-a-week.
