Dietmar Hamann has told Jadon Sancho to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer as he believes the player is “too good to wait another year” in the German Bundesliga.
The 20-year-old continues to be linked with Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool with Spanish side Real Madrid also said to be keen on signing him but only if a deal could wait for next year.
Sancho despite enjoying a stellar campaign in the 2019/20 season still sees uncertainties around his future ahead of the summer transfer window.
He has scored 19 goals and provided 19 assists for BVB across all competitions, but the former Liverpool star believes Sancho is made for a move to Premier League this summer while also adding the option of the player joining the Red Devils.
“There will continue to be a market for the top players, like Jadon Sancho – he’s just too good to wait another year,” Hamann told Bild. “I see him going to the Premier League. The most likely option there is Manchester United.”
Dortmund are said to be wanting at least £100 million for the England international who continues to star for BVB.
Hamann suggests that it will be good for everyone should a new approach be considered with Premier League wages transfer fees.
“Before the Coronavirus crisis, last season, the 20 clubs in the league made a loss of around €670million (£600million). Perhaps smaller transfer fees and less salary will now be paid to players across the board.
“Investors can dig into their pockets to make up for a deficit. Of course there is an absurdly high TV income in England, but the investors give the clubs completely new opportunities. That is why the idea of solidarity in the clubs is also different.
“In the Bundesliga, players have waived their salary so that no one had to be fired in the offices. In England, the 20 captains got together and donated some of their salary to the NHS.”
Hamann was also quick to add that Liverpool’s lead in the race for a first league title in 30 years would give them an easy chance with the Premier League set to return next week.
“Their lead in the table is too big,” he said. “They’re playing in their own league this season. The question is not whether Liverpool will be champion, but when.
“The only pity is that there will be no celebrations with fans who have been waiting for the title for so long.”
