Borussia Dortmund are willing to wait until the transfer market stabilises before selling Jadon Sancho, with his return to the Premier League resting on the budgets of England's biggest clubs.

Fees and wages are expected to have dropped by as much as 50 per cent when the summer window opens, but Dortmund are determined to get full value for Sancho and want more than £100 million for the England forward.

Manchester United had made the early running for Sancho (20) before the pandemic halted football and altered finances.

The player's former club, Manchester City, could be looking for a winger should Leroy Sane depart for Bayern Munich.

Dortmund are willing to wait until the market is back to normal before cashing in on Sancho, rather than let him go at less than their valuation. Sancho has two full seasons left on his deal but will still command a big fee before his final year, when his value will fall.

At the start of the season it was widely reported that he had agreed a new £190,000-a-week contract to stay at Dortmund beyond 2022, but there has been no announcement on an extension. Dortmund stand to make a huge profit on the £8million they paid City for him in 2017, after he had made it clear he wanted to leave the academy system at the Etihad Stadium to kick-start his senior career. He has established himself in the Dortmund first-team and played in the Champions League, earning him a place in the England squad under Gareth Southgate.

In Germany, where Hertha Berlin face city rivals Union Berlin in today's mid-table Bundesliga clash, second division club Dynamo Dresden's entire squad is nearing the end of a 14-day quarantine after three players tested positive for Covid-19, say a fourth player plus a staff member have returned positive tests.

However, the club, who are bottom of the second tier, said health authorities had not extended the collective quarantine and that only the infected pair would be isolated.

The club said that all other members, including the three players who had previously tested positive, had returned negative results in the fifth batch of testing and could begin group training tomorrow. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
