United have recently sent the 23-year-old winger back to Borussia Dortmund after a four-month banishment from Ten Hag’s squad. Sancho has made three appearances for Borussia Dortmund, providing one assist as he aims to regain his form. However, Dortmund’s sporting director has expressed doubt about a permanent return for Sancho due to financial and contractual difficulties. The player’s value has decreased since joining United from Dortmund in 2021, and the club is eager to recoup most of the original fee.
Although there was interest from Saudi Arabia, a proposed loan deal with an obligation to buy collapsed, and Dortmund has emerged as a potential destination for Sancho. United’s plan to demand a high transfer fee for Sancho could lead to difficulties, potentially resulting in a reunion with Ten Hag. Meanwhile, INEOS is reportedly preparing for significant activity in the transfer market, including a squad clearout to fund their business. Sancho is seen as one of United’s most marketable assets and seems unlikely to have a future at Old Trafford while Ten Hag is in charge.
