Dortmund targeting possible Sancho replacements: ‘If he leaves, we’ll sign someone’

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has admitted that the Germans are preparing for life without Jadon Sancho. The English winger has been linked with a big money move to Manchester United and it could be possible that the Red Devils will intensify their interest with an offer. In case Sancho does leave, Dortmund have already marked several attacking players as a target.

Asked about Sancho and a potential departure, Zorc told Kicker : “If Jadon left, we would do something again in the offensive area. There are certainly one or two players we are targeting.” Despite United’s interest, it could be possible that Sancho will stay on at Dortmund next season. The Germans demand at least €120m for the forward and it is unclear if United is ready to meet those demands.

Meanwhile, Dortmund have been reportedly close to signing Birmingham City wonderkid Jude Bellingham. “When you don’t have a billionaire or a state backing you up, then you need to be careful how you invest your money,” Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke is quoted as telling Kicker. “We don’t have an end date for corona, without that we simply have no planning security. Should we sell Sancho, then every player will cost €5-10m more. We have nothing to give away.”
