Bundesliga expert Daniel Pinder has told The Transfer Tavern that Jadon Sancho’s future will be inextricably linked with Borussia Dortmund’s bid to qualify for the Champions League amid interest from Manchester United.
United reportedly made a bid for the England international last summer but no move materialised.
Should Manchester United pay over the odds for Sancho?
That could open the door for a new pursuit this summer amid Dortmund’s struggles in the Bundesliga.
They are currently fifth, four points behind fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt and 19 behind leaders Bayern Munich.
It means they face a fight to qualify for the Champions League and Pinder thinks that both Sancho and striker Erling Haaland could leave the club if they don’t make it.
This season, Sancho has scored six goals and laid on 11 assists in his 22 games.
And Pinder, editor-in-chief of Get German Football News, told TT: “I think it’s that thing of whether Borussia Dortmund qualify for the Champions League. If they do, then he could stay but if they fail to qualify for the Champions League then Haaland could leave, Sancho could leave, we’re just touching upon his stats for this season.
“While they haven’t been what they were previously, still six goals and 11 assists in 21 games, he’s missed five games through injury, and when he hasn’t been playing for Borussia Dortmund it’s been noticeable.
“They’re a much poorer side without him.”
