The January transfer window might seem like a distant memory, but that doesn’t mean the rumour mill has shut down! Speculation over summer moves is heating up, so check out the latest gossip below, and see all official deals here.
TOP STORY: Borussia Dortmund name their price for Sancho
Borussia Dortmund have named their price for Jadon Sancho, Fabrizio Romano has revealed. The England winger has been at the heart of endless speculation of late, and the Italian journalist claims that the Bundesliga club would allow Sancho to leave for bids just under the figure of €100 million.
The 21-year-old began the season slowly, but has since reignited his form with 16 goals and 14 assists in 37 appearances. Manchester United are one of the clubs that continue to be linked with the winger’s name, though Romano says no official contact has been made with Dortmund from Old Trafford, creating an “open race” for the signature of the in-demand winger.
The Premier League still looks the most likely destination for Sancho, with Chelsea and Liverpool both previously named as potential landing spots, though a strong performance at the upcoming delayed Euro 2020 tournament means the German club could wait to see whether a bidding war is sparked.
