Manchester United have swiftly brushed aside an audacious attempt from Borussia Dortmund to secure Jadon Sancho’s services on loan, two years after his £73million transfer from the Bundesliga side to Old Trafford, reports Daily Star.
The Red Devils have no interest in entertaining Dortmund’s proposition for a temporary move for the 23-year-old English winger. However, according to multiple reports, they have shown a willingness to negotiate with any parties interested in a permanent deal for Sancho.
It is reported that an offer around the £45m mark might entice United to consider parting ways with the 23-year-old this summer, thus accepting a significant loss on their initial investment made in July 2021.
Sancho’s debut season at United was marred by injury woes and a significant dip in form from the high standards that had previously made him one of the most sought-after young talents in global football.
Even after a recuperation period in the Netherlands last season, the former Manchester City youth star has shown only sporadic moments of the brilliance he exhibited at Dortmund.
Manchester United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, might soon run out of patience with Sancho, who hasn’t donned the England jersey since being left out before the World Cup finals. However, it is also believed Ten Hag will give Sancho a shot at redemption this season.
In comparison to his impressive record of 38 goals in 104 Bundesliga games for Dortmund, Sancho’s tally of just nine goals in 55 Premier League matches for United falls significantly short.
Tottenham Hotspur have also shown interest in Sancho’s situation, but having recently secured Leicester’s James Maddison, they are expected to divert their attention to other transfer prospects instead of pursuing Sancho.
