Jadon Sancho breaks Bundesliga scoring record to help Dortmund trounce rivals Schalke
in derby, Sancho’s opening goal paved the way for Haaland’s brace and a strike from
Raphael Guerreiro poured the misery on Schalke in an embarrassingly one-sided
Revierderby. And the England man has now become the youngest player in Bundesliga
history to score 35 league goals.
Sancho, still just 20, made his mark with a deft strike from the edge of the box before
turning provider for an acrobatic effort from Haaland.
It was his fifth league goal of the season and ensured he has written himself into German
And it was yet more painful viewing for Manchester United fans – with England winger
slipping through Old Trafford chief Ed Woodward’s fingers last summer.
United is still interested in Sancho and his partner-in-crime Haaland, and with
Dortmund desperate to keep hold of the Norweigan, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men may
have another shot at Sancho in the summer.
According to the German paper Bild, Dortmund is willing to listen to offers of around £104million for Sancho as they look to recoup losses caused by coronavirus.
Despite Haaland reportedly having a clause in his contract allowing him to leave for just £65m in 2022, Dortmund is set on keeping the jewel in their crown beyond this summer.
That could pave the way for Sancho leading a host of big names out of the Signal Iduna Park.
United are ready to battle local rivals City for Haaland but are ready to reignite last summer’s failed bid for Sancho – whose Dortmund departure was claimed to be set in stone last week.
Dortmund still lie a disappointing sixth in the Bundesliga under interim boss Edin Terzic,
leaving them with an uphill battle to qualify for the Champions League – and facing an
exodus of their star players if they fail to make the cut.
