Borussia Dortmund are setting their sights on a January move to bring back Jadon Sancho from Manchester United.

The 23-year-old winger, who has fallen out of favor at Old Trafford, might see himself returning to his old stomping grounds as Dortmund emerges as a potential suitor, according to Sport Bild.

With less than a month until the transfer window, Dortmund is considering a player exchange, eyeing a swap involving their forward Donyell Malen, who is reportedly valued at about €30 million, for Sancho. This move could align with Manchester United’s strategy to enhance their frontline.

The deal hinges on Sancho’s willingness to take a pay cut from his current €14 million annual salary at United, as Dortmund’s top earner, Niklas Süle, is on a contract worth roughly €12 million per year.

Sancho’s previous tenure with Dortmund was marked by high performance, contributing to 19 goals in 26 Bundesliga games in the 2020-21 season, before his high-profile €85 million switch to Manchester United.

A return to Dortmund could offer Sancho a chance to rediscover the form that made him one of Europe’s most exciting young talents. Odds have dropped a lot when it comes to betting on transfers and a move for Sancho to Dortmund in recent months.
