Jadon Sancho: Could England international leave Borussia Dortmund this summer?

As Borussia Dortmund struggle in the Bundesliga this season, Jason Sancho has continued to be one of their few shining lights.

The German side, who face Sevilla in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday, currently sit sixth in the league and are in real danger of missing out on qualification for Europe’s elite club competition next season for the first time since the 2015-16 campaign.

And, with a host of Premier League clubs hovering, the next few months will prove crucial for England forward Sancho – as well as Dortmund’s own future.

So could Sancho finally leave the Westfalenstadion this summer and could his exit spark a mini player exodus?

The 20-year-old England international did not have an ideal start to the season, looking unfit and sluggish in his early outings, with some in Dortmund speculating his performances might have had something to do with the drama around his potential move to Manchester United last summer.

“Jadon was subconsciously set on a move,” Dortmund’s chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke later said, adding that he thought Sancho had become so preoccupied with the possibility that for a time it had cost him his usual easy style.

But Sancho has rekindled his form, with the only other standout being striker Erling Braut Haaland, and the pair have interacted impressively, particularly in fast-paced attacks.

Sancho and Haaland, along with a few other youngsters, are the players who give Dortmund its identity as a factory for soon-to-be-world-class talents.

When young players decide to join Dortmund, they do so knowing they will gain exposure on the big stage. But with Dortmund currently six points behind the Champions League spots, that exposure is not guaranteed. And missing out on the Champions League would not only hurt Dortmund’s allure, but also force them to rework their financial plans.
