Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre has revealed that Jadon Sancho could leave the club this summer, according to Sky Sports.
Sancho is said to be a top transfer target for clubs such as Manchester United and Chelsea.
Reports from The Express this week claimed that the Borussia Dortmund starlet has told the German giants that he wants to return to England this summer.
The 20-year-old is one of the most sought-after prospects in the world of football after establishing himself as a key player for Borussia Dortmund.
Sancho has scored 17 and created 17 in just 27 appearances so far this term, proving that he’s very much the real deal at the highest level of the game.
Such performances have attracted interested from Europe’s biggest names, with United heavily tipped as favourites to complete a deal.
Speaking to Sky Sports about Sancho and Achfraf Hakimi, Favre said that it’s possible that both could leave.
He said: “Obviously players will go and we hope that they stay but it’s possible that they may also leave.
“You have spoken about two players who we don’t know definitively what will happen – they could stay with us, that’s clear and that would be good for me.
“We’ll see what we’ll do in defence, midfield or attack.”
GIVEMESPORT’S Phil Spencer says…
Speculation over Jadon Sancho’s future is gathering pace by the day.
Based on his performances for Borussia Dortmund, it’s not surprising in the slightest.
Sancho is no ‘flavour of the month’ player, he’s a prospect who has the potential to become one of the best players in world football.
What he has done since moving to Germany is hugely impressive, and if he can take those performances into the new season then he’s got to be considered as one of the top 10 players on the planet.
If Manchester United can secure such a signing it will be a massive signal of intent that they plan to take themselves back to the top of the game.
Whether that can be done remains to be seen, but if they can pull it off then they’ll certainly be much closer to their former glory.
