Jadon Sancho has finalized a six-month loan move to Borussia Dortmund from Manchester United, aiming to rediscover his previous form after experiencing a lack of opportunities at Old Trafford.

The winger, who joined United from Dortmund for £73 million in 2021, has openly shared his excitement about the January transfer, expressing that it feels like a return to his “home.”

“When I came into the dressing room today, it felt like ‘coming home’,” Sancho said. “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 team-mates 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.”

Despite a challenging start in Manchester, the Englishman now faces a crucial six-month period at Dortmund where he must make a strong impact.

Whether he aims to secure a permanent move or simply outlast Erik ten Hag as the manager of Manchester United remains uncertain. In any case, his performance will be pivotal in rejuvenating a career that once held great promise. A positive start with an assist in his first game back against Darmstadt seems like a decent way to kick things off.

Sancho’s initial stint with the German side was nothing short of sensational, and it was these performances that drew the attention of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Starting his career in Manchester City’s academy, the English winger transitioned to Dortmund’s reserve team before making a significant impact in the first team at just 17 years old. From 2017 to 2021, he showcased electrifying skills on both the left and right wings, establishing himself as one of Europe’s most exciting prospects.

His journey took an unexpected turn when he joined United in 2021, becoming part of a trio of high-profile signings alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane.

The signings fueled expectations of a title-contending season. However, things didn’t pan out as anticipated, leading to the departure of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer just three months into the campaign. Under interim manager Ralf Rangnick, Sancho faced a shifting role, with the German emphasizing the need for the then-21-year-old to take initiative:

“We can give him a helping hand and show him we are trying to accompany him and give him all the necessary assistance that he needs, but in the end, it’s up to him to take the next steps.”
