Jadon Sancho is on par with Messi and Lewandowski – but Chelsea and Man Utd are full

Jadon Sancho will remain at Borussia Dortmund beyond the summer transfer window despite previous interest from Premier League giants Manchester United.

That is the view of Arsenal Invincible hero Jens Lehmann, who won the Bundesliga title with Dortmund before joining Arsene Wenger in north London ahead of their 2004 title triumph.

Lehmann has given his thoughts on the England international winger before Dortmund travel to the Allianz Arena to take on rivals Bayern Munich this weekend, which could halt the charge of the champions.

Sancho, who is a doubt for Der Klassiker following his winning goal against Monchengladbach in the cup on Tuesday, has been backed to stay beyond the summer whatever happens this season.

“Right now, I think they’re staying. Most of the big clubs have full squads anyway,” Lehmann told Daily Star Sport when asked about Sancho and Jude Bellingham.

“You’d have to be really really outstanding if a bigger club tries to get you. But if you can imagine a club like Chelsea, Manchester United or Manchester City, there is already 30 or 35 players plus the players on loan.

“It’s not that easy to make a decision for guys like Jude Bellingham and Sancho at this early stage in their careers.

“Would they add something? We’re not sure, but first of all they need to decrease their own squad size.”

When asked about the form of Sancho following a poor run, Lehmann said: “He’s done very well.

“Right now his stats can be compared to Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski, and I think the third best in the whole of Europe. It’s fantastic for English football.”
