Jadon Sancho has admitted he is unsure about his future at Borussia Dortmund, despite helping them take a big leap towards Champions League qualification this afternoon. The England international struck twice for his side as they beat RB Leipzig 3-2 in a thriller at Signal Iduna Park to move above Eintracht Frankfurt and into the top-four.
Dortmund had led 2-0 before Leipzig pulled themselves level in the second half.
But Sancho then decided to take the game by the scruff of the neck, as he finished off an incredible move that was started by himself to seal all three points.
It was his second goal of the afternoon and one that means so much to both him and Dortmund, who both know they have not been at their best this season.
But ultimately, Sancho showed he still has that star quality to win any game by himself as Dortmund showed up – without the injured Erlig Haaland – when it really mattered.
“I am very happy here in Dortmund at the moment. I love the club, the fans and the team.
“They gave me my first professional start. The fans motivate and push me to the limit.”
Sancho admitted earlier in the season that an intense summer of transfer speculation had impacted his form.
The 21-year-old wanted to move to Old Trafford last summer but United were unable to match Dortmund’s £108million valuation.
United’s only bid came in at around the £90m mark and was quickly rebuffed.
Haaland joined Sancho on the pitch after the game to congratulate him on the last-gasp win.
Both are expected to be the subject of strong interest this summer when the transfer reopens.
Dortmund will try their best to keep both once again but know they must secure Champions League football to stand a chance.
