No. 10 Redemption: Jadon Sancho Seals Dortmund Return with Loan Deal

By Xorkpe Sosu 4 Min Read

Jadon Sancho has successfully completed his loan transfer to Borussia Dortmund, but the agreement does not include an option for Borussia Dortmund to make a permanent purchase of the Manchester United winger.

As part of the deal bringing Sancho back to his former club on loan, Manchester United is set to receive a guaranteed £3 million from Borussia Dortmund.

To offset a significant portion of Sancho’s salary, Dortmund will make an initial payment of €3.5 million for the loan arrangement, which extends until June 30, 2024.

Notably, the agreement does not incorporate any provision for a future purchase.

Additional performance-based incentives are integrated into the agreement, potentially amounting to an extra €4 million.

However, the full sum is contingent on Sancho participating in all of Dortmund’s matches and the club advancing far in both this season’s Champions League and securing qualification for the competition in the following term.

During his tenure at Dortmund from 2017 to 2021, Jadon Sancho showcased remarkable performances, tallying an impressive record of 50 goals and 64 assists in 137 games.

His contributions played a crucial role in Dortmund’s success, culminating in the team winning the DFB-Pokal in 2021.

However, his transition to Manchester United proved to be less prolific, registering only 12 goals and six assists in 82 appearances.

This season, Sancho has made just three substitute appearances, all in August, and has been training independently since September.

A dispute with manager Erik ten Hag, where he accused the manager of dishonesty regarding his absence from the squad for the Arsenal game, led to Sancho being excluded from first-team training, with him feeling like a “scapegoat.”

The loan move signifies a new beginning for Sancho, who commenced his football journey in Kennington, London, before joining Watford at 12 and later Manchester City at 14.

This reunion with Sancho, who boasts 137 previous appearances for Dortmund, holds great importance for both the player and the club.

Sharing his excitement, Sancho stated, “When I came into the dressing room today, it felt like coming home.”

“I know the club inside and out, I’ve always been very close with the fans here, and I’ve never lost contact with those in charge.”

“I can’t wait to see my teammates again, go out on the pitch, play football with a smile on my face, prepare goals, score goals and help qualify for the Champions League.”

Having set records such as being the youngest player in BVB history to score a Bundesliga brace and leading with 19 assists in the 2018/19 season, Sancho now dons the iconic No. 10 jersey at Dortmund.

Eager to contribute to the team’s success, he is poised for a fresh start in his football journey.

Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl shared his enthusiasm  stating: “Jadon is an absolute difference player and I’m looking forward to seeing him back in black and yellow soon.”

“He knows this city, Signal Iduna Park, our fans and our club.”
“Even though he hasn’t played any competitive games in the past few months, we are sure that he will quickly settle back in with us, get into top form and use his qualities to help us achieve our goals for the season.”
