Why Borussia Dortmund Have Opted Not To Sign Jadon Sancho Permanently From Manchester United


Borussia Dortmund are understood to be keen on re-signing Jadon Sancho on loan, however, they don’t have the capacity to capture the Englishman permanently from Manchester United.

Sancho impressed after returning to the Black and Yellows on loan in January 2024 and was a crucial member of their UEFA Champions League side that made it through to the final, before ultimately losing to Real Madrid.

The Future Of Jadon Sancho At Manchester United

Jadon Sancho’s future at Old Trafford continues to hang in the balance given that he was ostracized from the first team by Dutch tactician Erik Ten Hag.

Ten Hag is still the manager of Manchester United, although there is an end-of-season evaluation being conducted to decide his future at the English side.

Sancho has strong ties with Borussia Dortmund having initially joined the club in 2017 before leaving the club for the Red Devils in 2021.

During the former Manchester City man’s recent loan spell at the Signal Iduna Park, he churned out some inspiring displays and started to exude greater confidence.

Borussia Dortmund Keen On Re-signing Jadon Sancho On Loan

Based on reports from German media outlet, BILD, Borussia Dortmund are desiring to keep Jadon Sancho but they only have a meager budget of £65 million to spend in the 2024 summer transfer window.

This indicates that they can’t acquire the England international permanently, given they aren’t financially buoyant enough to fund such a move.

Additionally, it is understood that Borussia Dortmund are focusing on strengthening two other positions – a new striker and a defender to replace veteran Matt Hummels.

Hummels is expected to depart Dortmund when his contract expires this summer, and as such, the German club will need a suitable replacement in that department.

Sancho had fallen out of favor at Manchester United after Erik Ten Hag excluded him from the matchday squad for an away league fixture against Arsenal in September 2023.

Ten Hag claimed in a presser following the encounter that Jadon Sancho was omitted from the game due to the attacker’s performance in training.

Sancho subsequently put out a now-deleted tweet on social media claiming that he had been scapegoated by Erik Ten Hag.

Jadon Sancho refused to apologize to the Manchester United boss, and he was made to train and eat alone for the next four months at Carrington.

Benni McCarthy Explains Why Jason Sancho Refused To Apologize To Erik Ten Hag

Manchester United strikers’ coach Benni McCarthy explained last week how he made efforts to mend the ties between both parties.

However, Benni soon found out that Sancho’s background was the reason why he opted against apologizing to Ten Hag.

Benni McCarthy said: “If you’re from the streets, no one wants to apologize.

“You admit you are not training well, you are lazy, everything you are accused of. Jadon wasn’t going to have that. 

“The manager has a strong character and just said that all he wants is an apology. Jadon thought that he had done nothing wrong. 

“He didn’t see why he had to apologize. Sometimes you have to apologize because a player will never win against a manager.”

Anyway, Jadon Sancho had course to smile in January 2024, as he made a temporary return to Borussia Dortmund, which has helped him gain back his mojo.

Sancho started the final against Real Madrid on June 1, 2024, however, he couldn’t galvanize his side to a victory over their Spanish opposition.

He made 24 appearances, scoring 3 goals and providing 3 assists across all competitions during his about 6 months spell in Dortmund.

Moreover, Borussia Dortmund are reported to be eyeing Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood, with the team said to be keen on signing the attacker on loan.

Greenwood impressed at Getafe, having been sent on loan to the club in the 2023/24 season, with the Englishman winning the Spanish side’s Player of the Season award.

Mason Greenwood made 36 appearances for Getafe during the 2023/24 season, scoring 10 goals and providing 6 assists in all competitions.
