Jadon Sancho has bid farewell to Borussia Dortmund ahead of his return to Manchester United this summer. The England winger faces an uncertain future having been banished by the Red Devils in September last year.

Sancho shone in a half-season spell at Dortmund, from whom he had been signed by United in a £70m deal in 2021. But he returned after being exiled from Erik ten Hag’s first-team squad after a disagreement with the Dutchman early in the 2023-24 season.

The 24-year-old helped Dortmund reach the Champions League final, although they were beaten 2-0 by Real Madrid in Saturday’s final at Wembley. Sancho has now paid tribute to the Bundesliga side and their staff as he prepares to go back to Old Trafford.

“What a crazy 6 months @bvb09,” the winger wrote on X.

“We win together we lose together, these moments only make us stronger! I’m so grateful to be apart of such an amazing group of players!

“I want to congratulate Real Madrid on winning the Champions League. We came up short on the night, but we should be super proud of ourselves. We are a family and these moments won’t break us! Thank you to everybody who came out to support us on such a special day! @BVB.

“I want to thank everyone involved at such an amazing club. I can’t thank you enough for welcoming me back the way you all have during these last 6 months.

“Thank you to Edin Terzić, Sebastian Kehl and Hans-Joachim Watzke for believing in me and bringing me back.

“Finally a special thank you to the BVB fans. Your support is amazing and I’m forever thankful for you all!”

Sancho scored twice and provided three assists in 14 Bundesliga appearances after rejoining Dortmund in January. The club finished fifth in the German top-flight.

The former Manchester City prospect will now return to United, where he could continue to remain exiled from the senior squad. Ten Hag’s own future is up in the air after disappointing Premier League and Champions League campaigns.

United chiefs, including INEOS CEO Sir Jim Ratcliffe and co-chairman Joel Glazer, have been conducting a season review over the past week. According to Sky Sports, Ten Hag will learn about a decision on his future in the coming days.
