BREAKING! – Sancho ARRIVES at Carrington as Murtough intervenes after his Man United exit route closed as January transfer plan falls through

A return to Borussia Dortmund now seems unlikely for Jadon Sancho, but the Manchester United outcast could still be on borrowed time at Old Trafford after rowing with Erik ten Hag

A return to Borussia Dortmund is not on the cards for Jadon Sancho

Jadon Sancho is unlikely to rejoin Borussia Dortmund in January – as his former club have no plans to actively pursue the Manchester United forward.

Sancho, 23, electrified the Bundesliga during a fruitful four-year spell at Dortmund, where his imperious form eventually convinced United to shell out £73million in order to bring the England star to the Premier League.

He has struggled to emulate that form at Old Trafford, though, and his long-term future is in jeopardy following a public spat with Erik ten Hag. Sancho is currently training alone after refusing to apologise to the Dutchman and it is believed that all parties are open to the idea of the winger moving on once the transfer window reopens.

There have already been tentative links touting Sancho as a target for Dortmund and Bayern Munich, however, it has now been confirmed by Bild that Sancho’s former club are not currently interested in re-signing him.

The report does go on to outline that transfer interest from Barcelona is genuine, but the Spanish champions would be unable to meet Manchester United’s €50m (£43.2m) asking price and may instead seek a loan deal.

While it remains to be seen if a switch to the Nou Camp will materialise, it’s getting harder and harder to see a way back for Sancho at Old Trafford.

Sancho took to social media in order to dispel claims by Ten Hag claiming his poor training standards were the reason for the winger’s absence from the matchday squad against Arsenal.

Even prior to his public spat with Ten Hag, Sancho had failed to live up to expectations at Old Trafford after scoring just 12 goals in 82 matches since joining the Red Devils.

Ten Hag was reluctant to be drawn on whether or not there was still scope for Sancho to make amends and salvage his Manchester United career.

Speaking last week, the Old Trafford chief said: “I don’t know. I am sitting here. [Saturday] we have a big game, we are going into a new block of games, many games in a condensed programme. I will focus on that.”

Sancho was not considered for selection for the 3-1 loss against Brighton at the weekend and will also be unavailable for Wednesday night’s showdown with Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
