The performances of Jadon Sancho, the young Borussia Dortmund attacker who has recently received a first senior England call-up off the back of his performances in the Bundesliga, have attracted the usual flurry of top-six transfer links but they're surely - for now, at least - fanciful.
City had been desperate to keep hold of Sancho, even reportedly offering him around £30,000 a week - a deal which would've been the biggest in the history of the club's academy - in order to try and tie him down.
They can cash in on a reported £70-90 million for the US star.
The former Man City starlet has registered nine assists in 10 appearances in all competitions so far this season as he appears to be benefiting from regular playing time and the faith of his coach.
Playing infront of such imposing and vast crowds at Dortmund's mightily impressive Westfalenstadion, Sancho has shown real maturity for such a young man, leading Everton forward Walcott to believe that the youngster has the ability to cope with the demands on global football. I miss them a lot.
Much has been made of the decision of Southgate to dip into the Championship to pick out Mount, but anyone who has seen the teenager play this season will be in little doubt he deserves the chance to shine.
Sancho found his pathway to the first team at City blocked, but he has thrived at Dortmund - a club that is renowned for providing young players with opportunities and for its support network for foreign imports.Читайте также: Lewis Hamilton: Show Vettel some respect
Sancho said: "It means a lot to me, especially my family". In response, Sancho failed to turn up for training, eventually sealing his move to the Bundesliga weeks later. "Obviously I have got to say thank you to the (Dortmund) manager (Lucien Favre) for playing me, trusting and believing in me", he added. If you're ready to play overseas and you believe in yourself, why not?
Sancho has told the London Evening Standard that the rumours of a £100million valuation are "mad", but did leave the door open to a return to England at some point, even if he is happy at Signal Iduna Park right now.
Asked if he felt he would play club football in England again, he said: "I don't know".
"That's. I don't know".
Sancho got the same award at the European Under-17 championships past year, as well as being part of the squad that won the Under-17 World Cup, although his participation was limited after being recalled by Dortmund halfway through the tournament to play for the first team.
"The growth in England at the moment is insane", Sancho added.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
