Borussia Dortmund are reportedly ‘increasingly resigned’ to losing Jadon Sancho at the end of the season with Manchester United ‘determined’ to beat Chelsea to his signature.
Sancho is currently enjoying another outstanding season with Dortmund and has flourished into one of world football’s brightest young talents during his spell in German football, playing an influential role in the club’s title challenge and becoming the youngest ever player to reach 22 Bundesliga goals.
Dortmund are now bracing themselves for renewed interest from the Premier League in bringing the 19-year-old back to English football, with Manchester United and Chelsea amongst the frontrunners in what is likely to prove to be a bidding war for the England international.
According to the Mirror, the German giants are prepared to sell the winger this summer should they receive a suitable offer, though any deal for Sancho would likely eclipse the £80m paid for Harry Maguire and make the youngster the most expensive English player in football history.
Sancho is a boyhood Chelsea fan and has been strongly linked with a move to the west London side this summer, the Blues prepared to spend significantly as Frank Lampard looks to build a side capable of challenging for major honours at Stamford Bridge.
Manchester United are also likely to heavily invest at the end of the season, and the Red Devils are said to be ‘determined’ to beat Chelsea to Sancho’s signature and are ‘confident’ their financial power can help them beat off the competition.
Sancho is likely to be included in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for this summer’s European Championships and has won 11 senior caps for the Three Lions since his debut in 2018, whilst his impressive season in Germany has seen him score 12 times and provide a further 13 assists in just 19 Bundesliga appearances so far this term.
