Real Madrid are set to go through a major roster overhaul a couple of months from now, and, according to latest reports, Zizou is eager to lure Europe’s hottest young player of the year: Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
Sancho has been a longtime Manchester United target since the former Manchester City academy player completed a move to the Bundesliga, where he’s exceeded all expectations in no time as one of the most promising players in the world.

Michael Zorc, the team’s sporting director, had already shut the door on a potential summer exit, claiming they wouldn’t let him go away without a fight.
“Signing him is going to be quite difficult, even for the biggest clubs in the world. We’re far from putting a price tag on Jadon, and he’ll be playing for Borussia Dortmund next season. He won’t be here until his retirement, we’re well aware of that,” Zorc told German outlet Bild.
Dortmund had deemed the England international as non-transferable. That was, of course, until Florentino Perez and Real Madrid showed their interest in the 19-year-old.
The Bundesliga runner-ups consider Sancho’s worthy of, at least, 80 million, even though they’re hoping to keep him for the long run, as per Bild’s report.
Sancho has thrived thanks to his ability to dribble on limited space and the fact that he’s already a master at controlling the pace of the game. He can play on either flank of the pitch or just behind the striker, and has shown to be quite a mature and intelligent player despite his tender age.
