David Ornstein on Jadon Sancho
Writing for the Athletic on Sunday, David Ornstein has posted a lengthy update on England international Jadon Sancho.
Sancho, 19, is under contract at Borussia Dortmund until 2022.
However, Ornstein has revealed that the teenager is unhappy in Germany following a fine for being late, while Sancho was subbed out of a 4-0 loss at Bayern Munich after 36 minutes:
It is a sequence of events — in particular the substitution in Munich — that The Athletic understands has left Sancho feeling humiliated, scapegoated and unprotected by his employers.
Dortmund’s inconsistent campaign has resulted in finger pointing and sources close to Sancho intimate that the Londoner thinks he is being unfairly used to shoulder much of the blame.

Man United & Liverpool interested in Jadon Sancho
Four clubs are leading the chase to sign Sancho:
As things stand, his options have been narrowed to Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid.
Manchester City appear slightly further back in the transfer chase.
Ornstein notes that City have “asked to be kept informed”.
Meanwhile, it’s claimed that Chelsea haven’t shown any interest in wanting to sign Sancho in the future.
Sancho is known to have been a Chelsea fan in his youth.
Has Ornstein really revealed anything new?
The updates on Jancho’s state of mind were interesting, however the news that Man United and Liverpool are interested in the attacker isn’t really new.
A few weeks ago, German football expert Raphael Honigstein also noted that United and Liverpool were sniffing around Sancho. He said:
Everyone’s interested in Sancho. Man (United) seem to have made him a priority but (Liverpool) will think carefully about him as well, I’m sure.
Honigstein also revealed that BVB were willing to sell the English star “at the right price”.
