Who should Jadon Sancho sign for?
Borussia Dortmund have admitted that Jadon Sancho will leave at some point in the future, but who should he sign for?
The clamour for the 21-year-old’s signature will be huge when Dortmund do eventually back down and decide to cash in. It is unlikely to happen during the January transfer window but there is every chance it could happen at the end of the season.
BVB Sporting director Michael Zorc has confirmed they knocked back interest in the summer, while the player himself was also very happy to continue developing in the Bundesliga.
However, an offer too big to turn down is going to come at some point and then the player could have a decision to make if there is more than one.
If a return to England is what he wants then former club Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool are the most likely options for him. Chelsea could be another as the transfer ban that is hindering the club will be lifted at the end of the season.
So who should he choose, if he does decide leaving Dortmund is the way forward?
Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann has claimed that Jurgen Klopp is showing a big interest and wants him on board at the end of the season.
The chance to move to Anfield would appeal to the youngster. There is a chance he could join the newly-crowned Premier League champions and the club, under the leadership of Klopp are up there with the very best at the moment. There would be a very good chance of winning silverware, but how much football could he expect to play.
He starts every week at Dortmund but that may not be the case at Liverpool just yet. Liverpool will at some point need a replacement for the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, but it is another matter whether he would be able to knock either of them out of the side just yet.
Sancho would be faced with the same situation at his former club City. Probably the main reason he left for Dortmund in the first place. He has come on leaps and bounds in a short space of time, but would he get into the Manchester City first team now? Probably not.
If it is regular first-team football in England with a huge club he wants, then Manchester United could be the answer.
Again, Zorc suggested that Sancho snubbed the chance to join United in the summer after an enquiry was made, and yes a switch to Old Trafford is not as appealing as it may have been in the past.
However, he would walk into the United team right now and would have the chance to become a United legend if he was part of the project to get them back to the very top. That is what United would try to sell to him.
Sancho would probably be best advised to stay where he is, at least for another season, but there is a good chance the decision will have to be made sooner rather than later.
