The Manchester United winger is expected to join Borussia Dortmund this month.

Jadon Sancho is reportedly close to sealing his return to Borussia Dortmund.

The Manchester United winger has been frozen out of the side by Erik ten Hag since he publicly criticised his boss in a social media post in September. Four months later and Sancho still hasn’t featured for the team and is poised to leave on loan during the mid-season transfer window.

Last week, United and Dortmund reached a rough agreement for the 23-year-old to join the latter until the end of the 2023/24 season, although several important details were holding the deal up.

The Daily Mail claim one of the biggest sticking points was the player’s £290,000-per-week wages, which falls outside Dortmund’s pay structure. It’s reported that United will contribute £100,000-a-week towards Sancho’s wages while he’s playing in Germany, with Dortmund set to pay the majority of his salary, in a move that will save United around £5m.

The Mail add there are specific payments built into the deal based on the number of appearances the attacker makes and if Dortmund qualify for the Champions League.

Meanwhile, BBC Sports’ Simon Stone wrote on X on Wednesday morning to say the deal is ‘close’ and that Sancho ‘could travel to Germany today or tomorrow’.

The former Manchester City youth graduate cost United £73m when they signed him from Dortmund in 2021, and the Bundesliga side will pay a minimum fee of £3.5m to loan the player back, with no option to buy included, according to the Athletic.

Sancho has made 82 appearances during his time at Old Trafford, netting 12 goals and registering six assists in that period.
