Manchester City’s problem child Jadon Sancho could get his move away from the Etihad, with Borussia Dortmund close to agreeing a deal for the 17-year-old, according to the Mirror and David Ornstein of the BBC.

Sancho had been tipped to return to London with Arsenal or Tottenham, but a move to either club hasn’t panned out and he could now continue his career at famed talent factory BVB.
The Germans, who have held a long-standing interest in Jadon, are reported to have leapt to the front of the queue and are hoping to conclude a deal today.
Sancho rejected a huge £30,000-a-week contract offer from Man City earlier this year, fearful that his path to Pep Guardiola’s first team will be blocked by the talent in front of him. He has since gone on strike to try and force a move, missing training throughout August.
