Jadon Sancho started out as an exciting youth prodigy at Borussia Dortmund. The young Englishman was making real strides to stardom during his first stint in the Bundesliga. He was signed by Manchester United and at the historic club, he was slowly rendered surplus to requirements.

A fallout with current manager Erik ten Hag ultimately saw his time at Manchester United end - Or so it was thought. See, Borussia Dortmund could only commit to bringing back Jadon Sancho on loan, a favour to their former prodigy. It remains to be seeen whether BVB will sign him permanently after his loan spell but given that he's finding form again, his parent club may have other ideas.

Jadon Sancho could be handed a fresh lifeline at Manchester United

According to a report from The Mirror, Jadon Sancho has been handed a "major lifeline", as Manchester United are set to make a huge U-turn by welcoming Sancho back after his loan spell.

The report states that Jason Wilcox, who is linked to the technical director role at Old Trafford given their hierarchal restructure, could be key to Sancho's resurgence. Wilcox has a great relationship with Jadon Sancho, as the two worked together when he was seriously young in the Man City academy.

It is believed that Wilcox could be the key to Jadon Sancho making a name for himself at Old Trafford again. Hope is not lost, even if Erik ten Hag is still at the helm.

The reason why Sancho is getting back his confidence at Dortmund, personified by his gaol-scoring of late, even in the Champions League, is because he's surrounded by a team who believe in him. If the structural change at the top of Old Trafford is led by Jason Wilcox, this could give Jadon Sancho a reason to believe in the project he seemingly failed at last time out.

From BVB's perspective, it would be great to see Jadon Sancho turn his bad reputation in England back into a good one. There was always a gem to be unearthed.
