The reason why Borussia Dortmund performed U-turn on re-signing Jadon Sancho with Man Utd loan 'imminent'

The reason why Borussia Dortmund performed U-turn on re-signing Jadon Sancho with Man Utd loan 'imminent'

Sancho is set to be on the move.

The reason why Borussia Dortmund performed a U-turn on re-signing Jadon Sancho from Manchester United has been revealed.

According to Sky Sports Germany, Dortmund are in talks with United over a straight loan move for Sancho which would see the England winger return to Signal Iduna Park until the end of the season.

Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth says that Dortmund ideally want to complete the deal before their upcoming training camp in Marbella, which begins next week.

Sancho hasn't been named in a matchday squad for United in four months, after he had a public dispute with manager Erik ten Hag following the side's 3-1 defeat at Arsenal on September 5.

The 23-year-old also hasn't been training with the first team, and it has long been expected that Sancho would leave Old Trafford in January.

In what form was unclear, with reports claiming that United were considering a termination of Sancho's contract eventually being shut down.

There has also been reported interest from the Saudi Pro League and clubs from Serie A, while Barcelona were also linked with signing him.

But there was no indication that Dortmund were going to make a move for their former player, who scored 50 goals in 137 games for the club in all competitions during his first spell there.

However, the German side failed to win any of their six games in December, and although manager Edin Terzic was given the vote of confidence, club bosses decided that change elsewhere needed.

That's according to The Athletic, who report that it was decided that new attackers should be brought on, with an emphasis on becoming a more dominant team in possession.

It is claimed, therefore, that Sancho was settled on as a key target, with that style of play being one of his main strengths during that successful first stint.

If he does rejoin Dortmund, it remains to be seen whether Sancho can recapture that form, especially given the length of his exile at United.

But Old Trafford chiefs will keep a close eye on his progress - particularly as any success would boost his market value ahead of an anticipated sale this summer.
