Dortmund issues

He may be one of the star men for Dortmund, but Sancho has had his issues at the club this season.

Sancho was substituted in Dortmund’s 4-0 defeat at Bayern Munich in November, with Lucien Favre admitting the winger’s performance was “not good enough”.

According to The Athletic, the sequence of events left the teenager feeling ‘humiliated’, ‘scapegoated’ and ‘unprotected’, which led to increased speculation over his future.

However, he has been in superb form since returning to the team.

Nevertheless, allowing the 19-year-old to leave would almost certainly be of financial reward for the Bundesliga outfit, and while a January switch is unlikely, it is understood that the club could be willing to allow him leave in the summer.
