Jadon Sancho's immediate future should be cleared up this month after he was exiled from the Man Utd team by Erik ten Hag.

Jadon Sancho has reportedly given the green light to join Borussia Dortmund on loan this month. Manchester United are discussing the terms of a six-month deal with the German side as the outcast's exit closes in.

Sancho has looked set to leave United after being exiled from the first-team picture by Erik ten Hag in September. The 23-year-old accused his manager of lying about poor performances in training after being left out of the squad for his side's 3-1 defeat at Arsenal.

He has not featured for United since, and after refusing to apologise to Ten Hag, has been on course to leave the club in January. Juventus and Borussia Dortmund have both been linked in recent weeks, with Fabrizio Romano now reporting that talks are advancing with the latter.

Sancho is said to have already agreed on a move to Dortmund, believing a return to the Bundesliga outfit will give him the best chance to rebuild his career. It was there that he made his name as an exciting young winger, registering 50 goals and 64 assists in four seasons before joining United in a £73million deal during July of 2021.

Talks between United and Dortmund are progressing and a six-month loan deal looks the most likely. Edin Terzic's side cannot afford to cover all of Sancho's salary and so discussions are centred around how much they can afford, with United also wanting to receive a loan fee.

Ten Hag last spoke openly about Sancho at the start of December, suggesting there was still a way back for the winger. But the Dutchman insisted the final decision laid with the player, which now looks set to be a move away.

"He knows what he has to do, it is up to him," the United boss said. "What will happen there, he knows what he has to do, if he wants to return it is up to him. It is about a culture and every player has to match certain standards and it was about that."
