After almost five months without playing official matches because of that quarrel with Erik Ten Hag after a game against Arsenal, Jadon Sancho left Manchester United during the January transfer window and returned to Borussia Dortmund on loan until the end of the season. For him it is the opportunity to regain his best version and prove that his failure at Old Trafford is an issue of the past.

Since then he has played 6 games for the German side, five in the Bundesliga and one in the UEFA Champions League. The latter was precisely the first leg of the round of 16 against PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands, which ended in a 1-1 draw, and there Jadon was part of the starting lineup as left-winger. But his performance was not too good and he was replaced 22 minutes into the second half by Marius Wolf.

Nevertheless, coach Edin Terzic was very complimentary of him after the game, during an interview with TNT Sports. "With Jadon it is always good to have him around, inside the team, inside the group and also inside the squad on a matchday, because Jadon is capable of making special things happen," said the Croatian manager.

But then he clarified: "He didn't have his best performance today, like us all, and he knows that he is able to play better football than today. This is what we are going to work on, to get him back on this level every three days when needed. But he is full of joy and we are really happy and pleased that he is around".

What will happen to him?

Edin Terzic's words suggest that he will want Jadon Sancho for longer and not just until the end of the current season. But the winger was loaned out and will have to return to Manchester United from July 1. In that case, Borussia Dortmund will have to start negotiations to extend that loan or to agree a buyout, which will surely be for a much lower price than the £73 million the Red Devils paid for him in 2021.
