Jason Sancho will be allowed to leave Borussia Dortmund in January, reports the Independent.
With 6 goals and 9 assists this season, the Englishman hasn’t exactly been underperforming, he has been one of his side’s best players. The issues at Dortmund lie within a more personal level than on the pitch.
It started when Sancho returned late from international duty earlier this season, prompting the German club to fine him a hefty sum of £85,000. That incident was followed up by boss Lucien Favre throwing the teenager under the bus after substituting him off early into the first-half, claiming he wasn’t good enough to continue playing.
Earlier this months, reports flooded in with stories of the young winger having been left feeling unprotected and embarrassed by his club. This has said to have created a rift between the player’s camp and the club, leading the overall relationship to deteriorate.
Furthermore, after failing to keep his discipline in line by not making the team-breifing and training sessions ahead of their 3-1 defeat to Barcelona on time, the club have little faith left in him. With disciplinary actions ready to be exercised, it was reported that the England international had a “war in all directions” with the Bundesliga outfit.
Moreover, the former Man City man’s on-field performances are apparently no longer relavant as the feud grows. The Germans are said to be “furious” in regards to the youngster’s behaviour and will thus look to move him on as early as January.
Meanwhile, Manchester United, City, Real Madrid and Liverpool are all said to be interested in the teenage winger’s services. These clubs are reportedly monitoring the 19-year-old’s situation closely in order to make a move.
United were interested earlier as well, but the Wesafaldmstadion outfit refused to part ways with their starlet so early after signing him. Besides, the player himself was believed to be in no hurry to push for a move.
The Borussian side value their forward around £100 million and it is unlikely that he could get offloaded for any less.
