Jadon Sancho Returns To Dortmund On Loan Until End Of The Season

Jadon Sancho’s unhappy adventure at Manchester United is over, at least for now, after he returned to his old club Borussia Dortmund on loan for the rest of the season. The deal does not come with an option for Borussia Dortmund to buy Sancho.

Manchester United signed Sancho from Dortmund in 2021 in a deal worth £73m, he has not featured for United since August 2023 due to a falling out with manager Erik ten Hag, which included Sancho publicly claiming he was being made a “scapegoat” at the club. Ten Hag said at the time that Sancho had underperformed in training.

Dortmund has been inconsistent this season, arguably overachieving in the Champions League by finishing top in a group with Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan, and Newcastle, while disappointing in the Bundesliga, where it has failed to win any of its last four games.

After 16 rounds, the team is already 15 points behind league leader Bayer Leverkusen. Dortmund finished 2023 without a win in any of its last six games across all competitions.

Sancho’s contract at Old Trafford is up in 2026, with United holding the option to extend for a further year.

Before moving to United, Sancho scored 50 goals and registered 64 assists in 137 appearances for Dortmund. That tally included 16 goals and 20 assists in the year before he moved to the Premier League.

Sancho has nine goals in 59 Premier League appearances for Manchester United. He previously had a four-year spell at Dortmund. He joined the German club from Manchester City in 2017.

Sancho has three goals in 23 appearances for England but hasn’t played for his country since October 2021. Sancho will wear the No. 10 shirt on his return to the Bundesliga.
