About Jadon Sancho in brief

Summary Jadon SanchoJadon Malik Sancho is an English professional footballer who plays as a winger for German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund and the England national team. Previously a youth player with Watford and Manchester City, Sancho signed his first senior contract with Dortmund in 2017. He was part of the England youth team that won the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup and made his debut for the senior team in 2018. Sancho has been described as one of the world’s best young players. He is known for his trickery, pace and use of feints in one-on-one situations and has been nominated to the 40-man shortlist for the 2020 Golden Boy. He came runner-up for the 2019 Kopa Trophy and won his first trophy following the DFL-Supercup victory over Bayern Munich. In his second season, he established himself as a first-team regular and was named in the 2018–19 Bundesliga Team of the Season. During a 3–3 draw with Hoffenheim on 9 February 2019, he became the youngest-ever player to score eight goals in a single Bundesliga season, breaking the record previously held by Christian Wüüll.

Later that month he agreed a new contract with the club keeping him at the club until 2022. In July 2017, he was omitted from Manchester City’s pre-season tour squad due to a dispute over assurances of playing time. It was subsequently reported that Sancho was attempting to engineer a move away from the club and City were alarmed at Sancho’s attitude after missing training. He later stated that he felt confident in making the move abroad due to his previous experiences in relocating with Manchester City and Watford. At the age of 14, he moved to Manchester City in March 2015 for an initial fee of £66,000 under the EPPP, potentially rising to £500,000 with add ons. He became the first player born in the 2000s to score in the UEFA Champions League for Dortmund against Atlético Madrid.
