The battle for Jadon Sancho’s signature looks set to begin.
Four high-profile clubs in England and Spain are reportedly monitoring the teenager, one of Europe’s brightest prospects.
Aggrieved with recent events at Borussia Dortmund, Sancho could now seek a new home for next season.
TOP STORY – CLUBS QUEUE UP FOR ‘SCAPEGOAT’ SANCHO
Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid are the “leading quartet” of suitors for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, according to The Athletic.
Former club Manchester City have also asked to be “kept informed” following a string of events that have upset the 19-year-old England winger, notably his first-half substitution in the 4-0 Klassiker loss to Bayern Munich earlier this month.
Sancho’s representatives are said to have deemed that move “disgraceful”, paving the way for his Dortmund departure at the end of the Bundesliga season.
