Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has admitted that Manchester United Jadon Sancho can leave the club this season, but only if a they get exactly what they want for him.
The 20-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League after another impressive season with Dortmund in the Bundesliga.
Manchester United have emerged as his most likely destination, but Manchester City and Liverpool have been credited with an interest in the England international, who has scored 20 goals this season in all competitions.
The German club want to keep hold of him, but the vultures are circling and Dortmund know a return to England is almost certain at some point for the talented winger.
A price tag of €120 million (£107m) has been slapped on Sancho and Dortmund insist it would take that amount to sign him and it would also have to be done at a time that suits them.
‘Jadon has a valid contract with us and we would be very happy if he is still with us next season,’ Zorc told German publication Waz.
‘To think about anything else at all, the timing would have to be right, and secondly, our price expectations would have to be met 100%.’
Sancho is under contract at Dortmund until 2022 and does not look likely to sign a new deal at the club, so if they do not cash in on him this summer, they will certainly have to next year.
Zorc is keen to avoid being short-changed on the England winger due to the coronavirus crisis and the economic uncertainty that has come with it.
Sancho is undoubtedly one of the brightest young talents in world football and Dortmund will be loathed to accept anything less than £100m for his signature.
They are preparing for life without him, though, with the knowledge that United, or another suitor, may well stump up the cash for Sancho.
‘Should Jadon leave, we’ll make additions in our attacking department,’ Zorc told Kicker. ‘There is certainly one or the other players on our radar.’
