Borussia Dortmund’s Sancho off to pre-season camp amid transfer speculation

Published

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho left with his team for a pre-season training camp in Switzerland on Monday amid ongoing speculation of a possible transfer to the English Premier League (EPL).


The 20-year-old England international, who has a contract with the German club until 2022, had a stellar season with the Bundesliga runners-ups.

He has been reportedly targeted by several top clubs, including Manchester United.

Sancho scored 17 league goals and set up another 16, with Borussia Dortmund saying they would only let him go if their price expectations were met fully.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for Sancho but media reports say the club may have balked at Borussia Dortmund’s valuation of around 120 million euros (141.24 million dollars).

That will make him the Bundesliga’s most expensive transfer ever and would see the German top division lose arguably its most exciting young player.

On Monday, however, Sancho flew with his team to Switzerland for the start of their pre-season training.

Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus and defender Marcel Schmelzer stayed behind to recover from injuries.

It is unclear when Reus, who has been sidelined for months with a groin injury, will be able to return to training.

The Bundesliga season starts on Sept. 18.
