Sancho’s Imminent Departure from Old Trafford
Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho is poised for a return to Borussia Dortmund, with sources confirming that the forward is due to sign a loan-to-buy agreement with his former club. The 23-year-old England international is expected to complete the transfer within the next few hours, marking a significant shift in his professional trajectory.
Details of the Deal Unveiled
Insiders have shed light on the specifics of the deal, which is structured as an initial loan for the remainder of the season. Dortmund will have the option to make the move permanent for a fee in the region of £25 million. Furthermore, the Bundesliga side will cover less than half of Sancho’s substantial weekly wages, which are reported to be around £250,000.
The Breakdown at Manchester United
Sancho’s relationship with Manchester United has deteriorated since a disagreement with manager Erik ten Hag. The Dutch coach publicly criticised Sancho’s training efforts, leading to a sharp exchange on social media and Sancho’s subsequent exclusion from the first-team squad. His last appearance for the club dates back to August, with no signs of reconciliation in sight.
A Move to Recapture Form
The winger’s high-profile transfer to Manchester United in 2021 for a reported fee of £73 million has not yielded the expected results. Sancho’s output of 12 goals and six assists in 82 appearances stands in stark contrast to his previous success in Germany, prompting a move that could reignite his career.
Manchester United’s Current Standing
Amidst the ongoing saga, Manchester United’s focus remains on their upcoming fixtures. The team currently sits eighth in the Premier League, following a recent defeat to Nottingham Forest. Their next challenge is an FA Cup tie against Wigan Athletic, as they aim to bounce back from their setbacks.
Transfer Buzz Continues
In related transfer news, Manchester United’s Hannibal Mejbri is reportedly on the verge of reaching an agreement after attracting multiple offers. The club’s transfer activities are under keen scrutiny as they navigate through a period of change both on and off the pitch.
