Hans-Joachim Watzke, CEO of Borussia Dortmund, has indicated that the club is ready to sell Jadon Sancho this summer if there is ‘an exceptional offer’.
Sancho has been closely linked to a move from Dortmund in the past, with Manchester United interested in signing him last year.
The financial impact of the coronavirus impact has hit Dortmund hard and Watzke declined to rule out the possibility of selling Sancho, which is estimated at £ 110 million.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke refused to rule out the possibility that Sancho would leave
Watzke told target: ‘I don’t interfere with opportunities, it makes no sense. Jadon Sancho has been with us much longer than Erling Haaland. We’ll have to talk to Jadon too.
If there is an exceptional offer, we will discuss it with the player and the broker as always. Nevertheless, I am very confident that the transfer market will only turn to a very limited extent this summer.
‘Especially at the really big clubs you can see what kind of wounds the corona virus has caused, and they are not small ones that heal within two weeks.’

The news will be of interest to Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, among others
Last year, United refused to pay Dortmund’s £ 110 million asking price for Sancho, who has 18 English hats.
In February, however, Watzke revealed that Dortmund would “ not rule out anything ” when it comes to players leaving this summer.
This season, the winger has scored 12 goals and delivered 16 assists for Dortmund in 31 games in all competitions.
While the 21-year-old is undoubtedly one of the most exciting prospects in world football, Sancho still has just over two years left on his contract with Dortmund, which could lower his rating.
In addition, Dortmund are currently fifth in the Bundesliga and are in danger of missing out on qualifying for the Champions League, so they may be selling Sancho to improve their financial situation.
Paris Saint-Germain and Sancho’s former club Manchester City are among the clubs that could possibly afford to sign him, but it remains to be seen if a deal will come.
Sancho is currently on the sidelines with a muscle injury and sometimes lacked consistency, but there is little doubt about the quality he possesses.
If Sancho were to close the season strongly and then have a major impact on England on Euro 2020, his share would rise.
