Manchester United have been told to contact Borussia Dortmund over a potential swap deal that could see Jadon Sancho return to the German club after a disappointing spell at Old Trafford. The winger was left out of Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the World Cup after falling down the pecking order under Erik ten Hag, and his future at the club has been uncertain.
Sancho joined United for £73million last year but has found himself behind Marcus Rashford and Antony, while also under pressure from Anthony Elanga and Alejandro Garnacho. While the United squad have returned to training in Spain, Sancho has not joined up with the rest of the group despite not being in attendance at the World Cup.
Former Tottenham and England winger Chris Waddle believes that Sancho’s future is in doubt, and he could be used in a potential swap deal in order to land Jude Bellingham. United have been among the clubs chasing the teenager who could cost as much as £130m, though they are thought to be behind Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester City.
Ten Hag does have an option to offer that the other three clubs don’t have however in Sancho, who impressed during his time in the Bundesliga and Dortmund would likely be interested in bringing him back to the club if they are able to financially. “I don’t want Bellingham to experience what is happening with Jadon Sancho at Manchester United,” Waddle told Lord Ping.

“Sometimes these moves don’t work out. I saw that Sancho hasn’t travelled to Spain with the rest of the United team for their mini pre-season – you have to worry about his future at the club.
“Maybe United could give Dortmund a call and do a swap deal, because the Sancho we’ve seen at United isn’t the same player as the one they signed from Dortmund. We know that Jude’s price tag will be very high, so there are only a handful of clubs that can realistically sign him. I’m sure that he will want to come and play in the Premier League.

“Eventually he will get disillusioned with Dortmund because they are always the bridesmaid. They are a great team to watch, but never seem to be able to compete with Bayern and win anything, or at least they haven’t for a while.
“Dortmund always sell their best players. Sancho left, who, being honest, hasn’t done it since he signed for Manchester United. [Erling] Haaland has gone into City – whoever shines in that team usually gets sold.”
Sancho has three goals in 14 games in all competitions for United so far this season, and last year only got on the scoresheet three times and registered three assists in 29 Premier League games.
