Who did Borussia Dortmund sign Jadon Sancho from?

How many assists did Sancho get this season?

Sancho registered 14 assists for Dortmund in the 2020/21 campaign and he scored a further 16 goals in 38 appearances for the German outfit.

His WhoScored rating of 7.54 was the fourth highest of any player in the Bundesliga this season. He also ranked third in Germany’s top flight for key passes per game with 2.6 and completed dribbles with three this term.

Sancho’s performances earned him a call-up to the national team, although he has been out of favour at the European Championships so far.

The England international has not been given a genuine opportunity to replicate his club form on the international stage, as Gareth Southgate has handed the 21-year-old just six minutes of action at the Euros this summer – despite his immense record for Dortmund.

His lack of game time could be a blessing for United as Sancho should arrive at Old Trafford fresh and ready for pre-season – assuming the two clubs will indeed conclude a deal for the winger in the coming days.
