Report: Man Utd tell £275,000-a-week star they want him to leave

Jadon Sancho’s contribution to Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League final victory over Real Madrid at Wembley will have left Manchester United wondering, “what if?” However, Dortmund is eager to sign the former star winger to a permanent contract, so this could lead to a summer transfer for Sancho.

After joining Dortmund from Manchester City in 2017, Sancho quickly rose to fame in west Germany. In just 137 games, he scored 50 goals, establishing himself as a future star. Together with Erling Haaland, the two formed a lethal duo that helped Dortmund win the DFB-Pokal in 2021 and almost unseat Bayern Munich as the league’s dominant team.

United paid slightly over £70 million to acquire the winger to Old Trafford as a result of his performances. Although the winger’s first season at the club was passable, his relationship with Erik Ten Hag was gradually deteriorating, and he was forced to train with youth teams and was left out of matchday squads. According to the Manchester Evening News, Dortmund is now interested in permanently breaking the Red Devils’ curse because of his comeback at the club.

Jadon Sancho: Transfer News Latest

Sancho looks unlikely to wear a Man Utd shirt ever again 

According to the source, Sancho—who makes £275k a week at Old Trafford—has been advised by United that he and Mason Greenwood can leave the team in the summer, even though Sancho has been playing at his best lately thanks to a loan at Borussia Dortmund. After the German team defeated Paris Saint-Germain in Tuesday’s semifinal, the Englishman defied all expectations to make it to the Champions League final. They will now play Real Madrid at Wembley at the beginning of June with the goal of winning just their second Champions League championship.

The “plan” is to sell both players in the summer in order to fund a massive rebuild, with the Red Devils targeting a price range of between £70 million and £80 million for the pair, but a deal would be easier to complete for Sancho. Greenwood and Sancho are both expected to return to United once their loan periods conclude.

Dortmund is eager to sign him back to a long-term contract at Signal Iduna Park after he made an impression there both in the second half of the current campaign and before moving to United. Sancho, on the other hand, is eager to leave Old Trafford and go back to the team that helped establish his reputation. It is anticipated that United and Dortmund would hold substantive talks following the Champions League championship.

Although Sancho might attract attention from other parties, selling him back to Dortmund is thought to be the simplest course of action. According to the report, the two got along well even after Sancho moved on loan in January. The Red Devils are content with their financial reward because they collected the majority of Sancho’s £6.5 million loan fee because Dortmund made it to the final.

Sancho will have to accept a pay decrease from his Old Trafford salary, and both teams will need to find a way past FFP restrictions. This is the only negative aspect of the move. Any deal returning him to Germany would even shatter Dortmund’s transfer record, set by the £30 million they paid for Ousmane Dembele; although, their enhanced financial position following their championship run may greatly assist that.

United would have to consider making another approach if Dortmund determines that a deal is too costly to pursue; although, given his impressive Champions League play, it’s possible that he may have attracted other suitors and that a loan move is still an option.

The article describes Ten Hag and Sancho’s working relationship as “irreconcilable,” so one thing is for sure: Sancho won’t work for him. However, since the Dutchman may leave this summer, there is a remote chance Sancho may continue under new leadership.

Jadon Sancho’s Manchester United future

Sancho has been a wasted signing at Old Trafford 

Sancho’s chances of making a comeback seem slim, but you never know with new management. The London-born winger, who was raised at Manchester City, has all the makings of a regular for United. Given that Ten Hag has Antony having trouble on the right side, you would think that Sancho would do better than his Brazilian colleague.

Depending on who is in the best form, Alejandro Garnacho and Marcus Rashford might compete for the left-hand side spot. A new right-winger could be perfect for United, while they are rumored to be considering Crystal Palace player Michael Olise.
