Dortmund reveal Sancho price
The transfer saga of 2020 seems to be bleeding into the new year, as the race for Jadon Sancho is set to ramp back up this coming summer.
Borussia Dortmund held firm last year, and kept the young England international, but would be willing to accept a lower fee this time around:
‘Borussia Dortmund will be open to sell Sancho in the summer if the ‘right bid’ will arrive, after one year ago he was one step away from joining. BVB will be asking less than €120m to let Sancho leave this year – but… no late bids at the end of the window,’ wrote Fabrizio Romano.

Manchester United were the main protagonists in the chase last year, though that could change this summer.
Liverpool & Chelsea credited with ‘interest’
It may not be a simple run at Sancho’s signature for the Red Devils.
German outlet BILD (via Sport Witness) report that Chelsea and Liverpool see Sancho as a player who would provide the perfect investment opportunity, with the winger’s value protected by his age.
The clubs believe that Sancho has everything needed to make him a ‘superstar of the decade’, with the feeling being he can be one of the world’s top footballers in the coming years.
That presents the opportunity of an investment, with a re-sale in the coming years possible.
