'Super Club' Approach For Sancho Knocked Back By Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund knocked back the advances of one of Europe’s “super clubs” when questions were asked of Jadon Sancho, claims club CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.
The 19-year-old winger continued his meteoric rise during the 2018-19 campaign.

Senior international recognition came his way with England, while helping Dortmund to challenge Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga title.

His efforts did not go unnoticed, with it suggested that the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid were monitoring the exciting former Manchester City winger.

Watzke has now revealed that questions were asked of the teenager’s future, telling Ruhr Nachrichten: 

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 a potential.

He is also not a player from the region or one who would have any connection to it.

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

If a foreign player is not convinced that the club is right for him at the exact time, it just does not make any sense.
