Sancho is widely regarded as the most exciting English prospect in the game, and finds himself at the top of Europe’s most wanted list. He’s expected to leave Germany this summer for a hefty fee.
The 20-year-old has scored 17 goals and provided 19 assists in all competitions for Borussia Dortmund this season.
Martin Laurence, from stats experts WhoScored, had this to say about him: “Jadon Sancho's stock has risen consistently since breaking into the Borussia Dortmund team, posting remarkable numbers in the Bundesliga thus far. The England international was the first player in all of Europe's top five leagues to reach double figures for both goals (14) and assists (15) this season and has only been joined in achieving that feat by Lionel Messi since.
“Moreover, of the 58 players to have scored 10 or more league goals this season, only Mauro Icardi and Jamie Vardy boast a better conversion rate than the winger (31.1 per cent)”
While some bookies had Man Utd at 3/1 just a couple of weeks ago, rumours have continued to spread regarding his future, and the best price now on offer on Sancho making that move is 8/5.
Chelsea are another club that have often been linked with a move for the youngster, but they’ve drifted out to a best price of 8/1 this morning. Barcelona are next in the market, at a best price of 16/1.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Having been a youth player for Man City before his move to Dortmund, Jadon Sancho could be set for a move to the red side of the city having lit up the Bundesliga over the past couple of seasons.
“United fans have been watching Sancho’s social media activity intently of late. Whether or not sipping water really indicates he’ll be playing his football at Old Trafford next season or not, the market suggests this is gathering strength.”
