Those who have been speculating that Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, is linked with a move to Premier League side, Liverpool football club, have been told to stop dreaming. Dortmund squad manager Sebastian Kehl said the 20-year-old England international has no business in Anfield yet.
Sancho announced himself to the world during this disrupted season where he has scored 19 goals and has helped his other teammates to also score 19 goals in all competitions.
Despite the fact that the coronavirus pandemic has halted football since March and has greatly affected the revenue of almost all the clubs across Europe, Borussia Dortmund believes that they can get about £100 million from a player they got close to nothing from Manchester City less than three years ago.
However, the asking price of Dortmund has not stopped the midfielder from being one of the most sought after youngster in the transfer market. He is being wanted by most top clubs in the Premier League and in some other top leagues in Europe.
For weeks now, it has been looking like Manchester United are the favourite to snatch him away from his other suitors. But nothing concrete has been produced from that yet.
In recent time, the speculation that Liverpool has joined the race for the signature of the pacing winger has taken the centre stage but Sebastian Kehl wants the world to know that there is no substance in such speculation.
“There is nothing to it,” he said. “We’d like to think that he will continue to play for us next season.”
Gareth Bale is back
Meanwhile, it seems Zinedine Zidane has put the differences between him and Wales star Gareth Bale aside as he has included him on the squad that will host Eibar later today.
The visit of Eibar to Madrid’s temporal home, Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, signifies the commencement of Real Madrid campaign to unseat Barcelona that currently sits on top the Spanish La Liga table with 5 points.
Since Barcelona won their first game on Saturday to extend their lead from 2 points to 5 points, Real Madrid is condemned to win in order to close up the gap. Hence, Zidane would need all the best legs at the club to achieve that with lowly placed Eibar.
The last defeat Madrid suffered before the coronavirus break set in was on March 8 against Real Betis. Gareth Bale sat on the beach and ended the match as an unused substitute. He will hope he doesn’t suffer the same fate tonight.
