Sancho can leave for the right price
Jadon Sancho could have left Borussia Dortmund last summer after a protracted transfer sage with Manchester United but ended up staying with BVB.
This summer, furthering of the pursuit by the English club is expected.
Dortmund have revealed there is an agreement in place for Sancho to leave.
“We already had a gentlemen’s agreement with Jadon last year that he can switch under certain conditions,” said sports director Michael Zorc.“He’s been with us for a few years. But there is no such agreement with Erling.”

Those ‘conditions’ appear to be in a bid in the region of €85-90m.
Manchester United will be looking for a wide player this summer to add to their forward line despite the successes of Mason Greenwood.
However, the depth options in Daniel James and Juan Mata are either not performing at the desired level or reaching the point where a departure is likely.
Sancho would come in and take the team to the next level, partnering Marcus Rashford with Greenwood and Amad Diallo coming through to provide additional quality in multiple positions.
Morey horror injury
Borussia Dortmund reached the final of the DFB-Pokal yesterday with a 5-0 victory of Holstein Kiel.
The lower league German side had already knocked out Bayern Munich but couldn’t pull off a similar giant killing.
The game, whilst great in regards of the result, was marred by a bad injury to young Spaniard Mateu Morey who overextended his leg when reaching for a ball.
“Of course we’re happy about the result. And it was a perfect evening until the 75th minute. But the injury to Mateu Morey leaves a cloud over everything,” said Terzic.

“Knowing what a fantastic boy he is, it hurts all the more. He’s on his way to hospital. We hope to know a bit more tomorrow.”
The Spanish 21-year-old has featured 13 times in the Bundesliga this season and played in the Champions League for BVB. Dortmund will hope the injury is not as bad as first feared but considering the screams of Morey on the pitch, that seems unlikely.
