Dortmund sporting director issues Jadon Sancho transfer update amid Chelsea and Man United links

Will Jadon Sancho return to the Premier League in the summer?

The talented teenager is sure to be on the list of many clubs through Europe’s top five leagues this summer following a string of impressive performances in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund.

Sancho has made his way into Gareth Southgate’s England plans and appears to have the world at his feet.

The 19-year-old has netted 15 goals and 14 assists in 28 games to add to the 13 he scored in 43 games last season.

There was plenty of interest in him during the January transfer window, with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United keeping a close eye on him and his situation, but he stayed put and has built up a fine relationship with new signing Erling Braut Haaland.

And the two Premier League giants are expected to do battle for his signature when the window reopens again in the summer.

Both Chelsea and United have been given hope of tying up a deal for Sancho, with Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc refusing to confirm that the teenager would stay with the club next season.

Speaking to Bild he said: “The fact is no other club has contacted us so far about Jadon.

“[I can’t] reliably answer today [if Sancho will stay at Dortmund beyond the summer]. What I can say for sure is that he feels very comfortable with us. Otherwise he could not produce such [high-level] performances week after week.

“He is a phenomenon and is now producing top performances. And he rarely takes a break on the pitch, helping the team with their defensive work. He is hard-working and gets the greatest of respect from me.”
