Former Manchester City graduate Jadon Sancho is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer amid Manchester United’s interest, according to Sky Sports Germany. The soon to be 20-year-old forward has gone on to represent England since joining Dortmund from Manchester City in 2017.

He is expected to feature at the Euro 2020 finals this summer and has regularly been linked with a move to the Premier League. Sky Sports Germany reporter Jesco von Eichmann reckons 

“He will leave Dortmund this summer, that’s for sure.

“It’s not clear to which club he will change.

“Manchester United is one of the big clubs that are interested, that I’ve heard.

“Michael Zorc, the director of Dortmund, said last week in an interview that he hasn’t had an offer for Jadon Sancho yet. Today, I asked him again, and he just smiled!

“There will be some offers for Sancho in the future. He is improving. He was very tired at the end of the first part of the season but now he’s very fit and performing very good. He improved his behaviour.

“He had some trouble coming in on time – he came more or less late every day. He changed that and he is really improving.

“He is working hard in training so (head coach) Lucien Favre is pretty happy with him right now.

“I guess he thought over some things in the winter break and now he is working like the professional that he wasn’t before.”

The Englishman has long been linked with a move to the Premier League and it seems that his return to England is only a matter of months away.


Sancho has 12 goals and 13 assists in 19 Bundesliga appearances this season.

The winger is expected to attract a transfer fee of more than £100 million but for a young prodigy who has proven himself in one of the biggest leagues, it seems to be a price worth paying. He was named in the Bundesliga Team of the Season for the 2018/19 campaign after scoring 12 goals and assisting 14 and has now taken his game to another level this season.

There have been some issues at Signal Iduna Park recently, though. Sancho was suspended by Dortmund in October after returning late to the club from international duty. He was also demoted to Dortmund’s reserves during the 2017/18 season after showing up late to training on more than one occasion.

However, Manchester United seem ready to pounce on this opportunity to prize him away to England.
