Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has revealed that a ‘super club’ have made an approach for former Man City forward Jadon Sancho, only to be told in no uncertain terms that they are not considering his transfer at the moment.

Sancho has found back of the net 13 times last campaign in all competitions, assisting another 19, and while Dortmund CEO was adamant that he would not be allowed to depart from the Signal Iduna Park this year, he did admit that stance will be reviewed for the next summer.

Via the Manchester Evening News, Watzke said: “A chief of one of the super clubs asked me back in spring if there was a chance [to sign Sancho] but I told him straight away he should forget about it and he never contacted me again.

“He knew I meant what I said. There aren’t many 19-year-olds with such potential.”

“When you have a player like Jadon Sancho, you must reassess the situation every single year. Everything else would not be honest.”

Liverpool have been linked with signing the England international forward during this summer transfer window, while their arc-rivals Manchester United also been in the hunt for the services of the former Man City man.

Liverpool attacking trio at the moment looks incredible, however, both Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have been tipped to depart from Anfield in the recent transfer window.
