Jadon Sancho set to miss both legs of Manchester City Champions League tie

Jadon Sancho set to miss both legs of Manchester City Champions League tie

Reunion in doubt

101 reported last week that Jadon Sancho was likely to miss the first leg of Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League clash with Manchester City.

Sancho picked up an injury at the start of the March which meant he missed the latest round of England Internationals.  He was sent to Dubai for rehabilitation and has since returned to the club but he did not train on Sunday, all but confirming his absence for the first leg.

The match would have represented a homecoming for Sancho, who spent two years with City at academy level before making the move to Germany.

Today reports from German publication Ruhr Nachrichten are that he is unlikely to be available to for either leg, with the second leg set for April 14th.

The loss of Sancho will be seen as a big blow for Dortmund. They have only won one of their last five games and are outside the Champions League places in Germany. He has scored six goals and provided nine assists this season and his return would have been a boost for the struggling Germans, but it is now unlikely he will be available.

Haaland agent denies fees

Borussia Dortmund will have Erling Haaland available for their games with Man City and the players agent Mino Raiola was in the news last week speaking to clubs interested in signing him.

One of those clubs heavily linked is of course City, especially now that they have announced Sergio Aguero is leaving.

Marca suggested that his personal fees for a deal was set to be circa €40 million, but the super agent has denied this.

Respected journalist Fabrizio Romano has tweeted on the matter.

As is often the case, the agent is likely to be as much of a winner as anyone involved in a major transfer deal and this is set to be one of, if not the biggest of the summer.
