Dortmund confident nobody will pay ‘the fee we want’ for Sancho

Borussia Dortmund remain confident no club will meet their asking price for Jadon Sancho, with club chief Hans-Joachim Watzke believing no club is capable of meeting the star’s valuation this summer.

Sancho is reportedly being monitored by several Premier League sides following another impressive season in Germany’s top tier, the winger having been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea in recent months.

The England international – who scored 17 goals and provided a further 16 assists in the Bundesliga this season – is believed to be keen on a return to English football, though will likely cost a British transfer-record for any of his potential suitors.

SportBILD have previously suggested that Dortmund are seeking a fee of £117m for the player amid the continued interest, a figure which Watzke believes no club will be prepared to match amid the current climate.

“If Jadon approaches us and says he wants to leave no matter what, which did not happen until now, and a club wants to spend what we demand, we will discuss it,” Watzke told Sport1.

“But I don’t think there will be a club that pays the fee we want.”

Manchester United have been suggested as Sancho’s most likely destination with the club believed to have made the winger their number one transfer target, however, the Mail said last week that the Red Devils are prepared to be patient in their pursuit of the star.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are unwilling to pay over the odds for Sancho amid the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, and will wait for his price to drop before making their move despite potential competition from Europe’s elite.
