The stunning amount Jadon Sancho has earned in wages since last Man Utd match as Dortmund loan confirmed

The stunning amount Jadon Sancho has earned in wages since last Man Utd match as Dortmund loan confirmed

It's been a long wait for Sancho.

Jadon Sancho has left Manchester United to join Borussia Dortmund on loan until the end of the 2023/24 season - ending a near five-month exile from competitive football.

Sancho hasn't played for United since their 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest on August 26.

And after being left out of the squad for the 3-1 defeat to Arsenal on September 5, a public dispute - and subsequent unsuccessful talks - between the winger and manager Erik ten Hag meant that the England international was banished from the matchday squad and from first team training.

As a result, Sancho is now returning to Dortmund to not only to recapture his best form - but also simply to kick a football with his team-mates again.

It is claimed that United are paying one-third of Sancho's salary, which Spotrac claim to be £250,000, while he is on loan in Germany.

Between the winger's exit and his last appearance for United, a total of 138 days have elapsed where Sancho hasn't played under Ten Hag.

If the player's reported salary is indeed accurate, Sancho will have taken home £35,714 per day at Old Trafford.

And he will therefore have earned an eye-watering sum of over £4.9 million since his last appearance against Forest.

According to Metro, United rejected a specific request from Dortmund to insert an option to buy clause as part of Sancho's loan contract, as they hope that strong performances in Germany will help to boost the 23-year-old's market value.

At this stage, any return to competitive action at United under Ten Hag appears unlikely, especially given comments made by the player himself upon his return to Signal Iduna Park.

He told Dortmund's official website: "When I walked into the changing room today, it felt like 'coming home'.

"I know the club inside out, I've always been very close to the fans here and I've never lost contact with the people in charge.

"I can't wait to see my team-mates again, get out on the pitch, play football with a smile on my face, get assists, score goals and help the club qualify for the Champions League."
