JADON SANCHO rewrote German football history.
And as the imposed two-month break for coronavirus ends, the Borussia Dortmund winger will look to set off another spellbinding chapter this weekend.
England’s 20-year-old international Sancho will feature a colossal contest, considered Germany’s biggest derby, in the home Bundesliga battle against neighbors Schalke.
But, as one of the most in-demand players in the world, the big question over the summer is if Sancho should continue to wear a yellow jersey.
Manchester United has long been a favorite to land him but, as SunSport revealed in March, Covid-19 ‘s financial downturn might mean he ‘s staying for another year in Germany.
And it could push Dortmund to give him a longer contract because he’d only have 12 more months on his offer in 2021, wiping millions off his worth.
Given the pandemic, it seems extremely doubtful that any club — including United — would be able to pay nearly £120million at the end of this campaign.
As a result, Dortmund could give Sancho this summer that new deal and sit on their assets for another season before the financial situation of football becomes more clear.
Club legend Paul Lambert believes that Sancho should think twice before leaving for United or any club.
Former midfielder Lambert won the 1997 Champions League with Dortmund when they beat Juventus 3-1 and Zinedine Zidane was marked out of the game by the Scotsman.
Sancho scored 14 goals this season in the league, with only Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich (25) and Timo Werner of RB Leipzig (21) netting more.
In December, Sancho became the youngest player in Bundesliga history to score 22 goals, surpassing the record of former Stuttgart striker Horst Koppels and Borussia Monchengladbach. It was a record that had been up there since 1968.
