Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho set to leave in July with Chelsea and Manchester United heavily interested

Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho is reportedly set to leave the club at the end of the season with Chelsea and Manchester United amongst the clubs that are interested in him.

The teenager has been in top form once again this season having had an incredible breakout campaign last year.

The English international has had issues with Dortmund recently and has been open to leaving the club that he only joined in 2017.

Sancho is already in elite company this year with his performances as he is the only player not named Lionel Messi to have 10 goals and 10 assists in a top-five league.

He has directly contributed to an incredible 26 goals in just 19 appearances in the Bundesliga- 12 being goals and the rest assists.

Only Timo Werner of RB Leipzig has the same tally with Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski only contributing to 25 goals despite having another special campaign.

The winger is one of the brightest prospects that world football has to offer and Dortmund are keen on cashing in big on him, with a reported sale being worth up to £100m.

Dortmund signed the youngster from Premier League champions Manchester City in 2017 for £7m as Sancho saw that first-team opportunities were limited given the elite quality at Pep Guardiola’s disposal.

The 19-year-old struggled initially but after a year in Germany, he proved himself last campaign where he was one of the best players in the league.

He contributed to 29 goals in all of the 34 Bundesliga games, which caught the attention of the biggest clubs in the world.

European giants Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona have all registered their interest as well but a return to England looks the most likely as of right now.

Manchester United were heavily linked with the Englishman in the previous summer transfer window as they were looking for a winger to reinforce their attacking options.

The Red Devils’ chief executive Ed Woodward has promised that the club will spend big in the upcoming transfer window and Sancho could be a potential target for them.

Chelsea were also interested, the club that Sancho supports, but due to the transfer ban, they were unable to make an approach in the summer and Dortmund would not have let him go in January either.
