Borussia Dortmund have admitted that Manchester United target Jordan Sancho will leave the club at some stage.
That follows comments made by the club’s sporting director, Michael Zorc who said “you don’t have to be a prophet to know that he won’t play here for another five years”.
Sancho famously made the decision to leave Manchester City and move to the Bundesliga for the chance to play first team football, and the move has paid rich dividends as he has become a major star in Germany, scoring 18 times, and providing 29 assists in 64 appearances for Dortmund.
The 19-year old is now a regular part of the set-up under Gareth Southgate as well, winning 8 international caps so far, and scoring his first two goals for his country in last month’s European qualifying win over Kosovo.
Zorc says that no decision has been made yet about Sancho’s futures, but his comments are sure to put United, and a number of the other top sides in Europe, on red alert.
