Borussia Dortmund’s rising star attracts great interest, and with a £100million fee, already mentioned, Manchester City has a decisive advantage. Manchester City has an edge on their rivals if they ever try to rewrite the new English star, Jadon Sancho. Blues sold the 18-year-old wings to Borussia Dortmund for around £ 8million in the summer of 2017 after London decided to sign a lucrative new deal.
The deal was a good one for a player who had not been involved in the first team – although he was clamped in the first team together with the youth teams Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz. City paid about £ 66,000 to the player when he was a dazzling 14-year-old at Watford, who also picked up around $ 800,000 as their reduction of the sale in Dortmund.
So Blues have already made a profit, while Sancho has quickly made a name for himself on Westfalen Stadium, with a goal and six assists – putting him at the top of the Bundesliga assists table – as Dortmund has raised top spot in the league. Sancho capped it with a call to the senior England team this week, along with Gareth Southgate’s boys for the Nations League game against Croatia and Spain. There is already a £ 100million price tag on his head, with Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea all said to be interested.
