Jadon Sancho’s stint at Manchester United has taken a turn, as the English forward rejoins his former club Borussia Dortmund on a loan deal for the rest of the season. This move marks a significant shift in Sancho’s career trajectory, following a challenging period at United.
Sancho, who has not played for Manchester United since August, had a falling out with United’s coach Erik ten Hag, culminating in Sancho claiming he was being used as a “scapegoat” at the club. Ten Hag, in response, cited Sancho’s underperformance in training as a concern. Follow your favourite Premier League team with attractive football betting odds from Nextbet.
This loan does not include an option for Dortmund to purchase Sancho, signaling a potential return to United in the future. Sancho’s time at Manchester United saw him scoring nine goals in 59 Premier League appearances, following his high-profile transfer from Dortmund in 2021 for 85 million euros.
At Dortmund, Sancho previously shone brightly, netting 50 goals in 137 competitive games during a four-year spell after joining from Manchester City in 2017. His return comes at a crucial time for Dortmund, which has been displaying a mixed form this season. Despite topping their Champions League group, the team has struggled in the Bundesliga, failing to secure a win in their last four games and trailing 15 points behind league leader Bayer Leverkusen.
Dortmund’s recent lack of victories, including no wins in their last six games across all competitions in 2023, underscores the need for Sancho’s attacking prowess. Sancho, who has three goals in 23 appearances for England, hasn’t played for his country since October 2021 and will be looking to regain his form at Dortmund.
This loan move offers Sancho a chance to rediscover his best form and provide Dortmund with a much-needed boost as they aim to improve their standing in the Bundesliga and continue their journey in the Champions League. Get the latest updates from the Premier League only on Nextbet Sports.
