Jadon Sancho experienced a slow start to the 2020-21 campaign after being heavily involved with the move to Manchester United last summer. But he has begun to return to his best results since the start of the year.
Jadon Sancho is back
According to Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke, Jadon Sancho is impressive without the pressure of transfer talk weighing him down. Sancho experienced a slow start to the 2020-21 campaign after being heavily involved with the move to Manchester United last summer. But he has begun to return to his best results since the start of the year. He scored his 10th goal of the season in a 4-0 win against Schalke on Saturday. Also, He set up one of Erling Haaland’s efforts, with Watzke happy to see him show his “incredible quality” again after a testing period. Watzke told reporters: “Jadon is doing very well at the moment; he is back. But it was only a matter of time. All transfer conversations in the summer have already been forgotten.”
The players still have two years left on his current contract at BVB
“Edin Terzic talked to him a lot. Jadon has shown again over the past few weeks what an incredible quality he is. We are thrilled that he plays for us”. The England international still has two years left to run on his current deal at Dortmund. While speculation about his future has subsided in recent months, rumours of a potential move to Old Trafford continue to float in the background. The BVB’s refusal to budge on their $141 million valuations of the winger ultimately put off the Red Devils last year. Still, it was reported that the German giants could lower their asking price when the market reopens amid financial problems caused by the coronavirus crisis. Dortmund have slipped out of the fight for the Bundesliga title after falling 15 points behind the reigning champions Bayern Munich, but in the Champions League and DFB-Pokal are still going to be healthy.
Terzic’s side won the first leg of their round-of-16 European tie against Sevilla 3-2 last week and also have a quarterfinal clash with Borussia Monchengladbach to look forward to in the domestic cup. Sancho and Co will also be determined to make sure the BVB delivers the top-four finish in the German top flight, with a home fixture against Arminia next Saturday. “Of course, qualifying for the Champions League is still realistic,” Watzke added. “That is our stated goal. At Frankfurt and Wolfsburg, we have six points to reach. In the end, we have to leave one of these two teams behind. Of course, it’s good that we have yet to play both of those teams. So it’s still possible for us.”
