Top Premier League sides like Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool are keeping an eye on Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

Sancho has impressed since moving from the Manchester City academy to the Borussia Dortmund first team, and the 19-year-old is one of the highly-rated players in the world.

Sancho is already commanding a fee of £100m, but former Borussia Dortmund midfielder Steffen Freund believes Jadon Sancho should snub a £100m summer move and remain with Dortmund.

Freund cited the case of Luka Jovic as a warning to Sancho.

“Jadon is ready to play for Liverpool or Man United, no question, because his stats are unbelievable. That shows that he can take the next step,” Freund told talkSPORT.

“In the Borussia Dortmund side with [Erling] Haaland, [Julian] Brandt improving, with Emre Can signing, with changing to a back three that suits Sancho.

“Remember [Luka] Jovic, who moved to Real Madrid from Eintracht Frankfurt, he’s not playing. If you have an offer from Real Madrid you think, ‘I have to go’.

“No, you don’t have to go because the salaries in the Bundesliga are on a good level, too, not as much as Real Madrid or the Premier League, though. But you can earn good money and improve and not make too much of a big step at once.

“So for Jadon to move to Man United with that pressure, they are struggling to qualify for the Champions League, so maybe it’s better to stay another year in Dortmund.”
