City could rival Chelsea for Sancho with buy-back clause

City could rival Chelsea for Sancho with buy-back clause

The wide player has taken to life at the Westfalenstadion like a duck to water, already scoring a goal and making six more to secure a place in a swashbuckling Dortmund side that sit atop the German league coming into this latest global break. His dream to play for his country came true when he played for the England under-17 side that reached the final of UEFA European under-17 Championship, and his performance was so phenomenal that he was named the player of the tournament.

Sancho looked comfortable in his 22 minutes on the field, but Southgate is looking to keep expectations under control surrounding the young star.

Playing infront of such imposing and vast crowds at Dortmund's mightily impressive Westfalenstadion, Sancho has shown real maturity for such a young man, leading Everton forward Walcott to believe that the youngster has the ability to cope with the demands on worldwide football.

Jadon Sancho, 18, and Mason Mount, 19, who made moves to get more first team football, and James Maddison, who jumped to the Premier League, are all rewarded with a first call-up. Joining Watford at the age of seven he later moved to Manchester City and eventually landed in Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund, becoming the first Englishman to play a Bundesliga match for Dortmund.

The Three Lions played out a goalless draw in their Nations League meeting with Croatia in Rijeka on Friday night in a match which took place behind closed doors.

"That's the biggest thing that could ever happen to a young kid like me".

"But that won't faze me at all".

"Do I feel like playing in England again?"

Despite interest from other English clubs, Sancho headed to Borussia Dortmund in 2017, and showed real promise last season before really excelling in the early stages of this term. I don't know what to say'.

"It's completely different now, there are a lot of young players in that group".

The Mirror claim that Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are particularly keen on Sancho, but Dortmund think Sancho may be worth around £100million, using their sale of winger Ousmane Dembele to Barcelona as a guide.

Sancho said: "Obviously moving from home, that was the biggest".

"At first, I was nervous when I made my debut, but now I'm getting used to it".

Sancho said: "I don't really see myself as a talented player". It's a long season so I'm going to learn so much off him.
