The delays to Jadon Sancho's proposed loan move to Borussia Dortmund are seemingly being caused by Manchester United.

It has been heavily reported in recent days that Borussia Dortmund are closing in on the signing of Jadon Sancho on loan from Manchester United. The Black and Yellows were hoping to complete the deal by Friday, and it was even claimed that an agreement was already in place. But the forward has not yet been given the green light to fly to BVB's training camp in Marbella.

Now, Sky Sport are reporting that the delays to the deal are being caused by Manchester United as they are facing criticism for letting the 23 year old depart for such a cheap fee. They want to have proper communication in place to ensure that they do not come out of the deal looking bad from a PR perspective. The report adds that chances of the deal going through are still very high, but the Premier League side are in no rush to complete the deal.

The deal to sign Jadon Sancho on loan until the end of the season will cost Borussia Dortmund around 3-4 million euros. BVB will not have a purchase clause to turn the loan spell into a permanent one.

Sancho has been suspended from the Manchester United first-team since August, having claimed that he was being made a scapegoat by manager Erik ten Hag. He is keen on securing a return to Borussia Dortmund, and will hope to rediscover the form that saw him become one of the world's best young forwards before his big money move to Manchester United.
