Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has been one of the outstanding players in Europe this season, and it now seems as though the 20-year-old wants to return to England this summer.
Manchester United have been strongly linked with a move for Sancho, while Chelsea seem to have withdrawn from the race for his signature after turning their attention towards Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz.
SportBild report that Sancho has informed Dortmund of his desire to return to England in the summer transfer window.
“Any step for Sancho is going to be a challenge but he’s developing really well,” England coach Gareth Southgate told Sky Sports.
“If I look at his age and his contribution, he’s learning the game, he’s slowly maturing – there are bits he’s still got to learn – and he has some fantastic role models in Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford, not only in terms of how they play but also their professionalism, their desire and hunger.”
This season, Sancho has scored 20 goals and provided 20 assists in 40 games for Dortmund.
