Jadon Sancho could be on his way back to England with Manchester United or Chelsea this summer – four years after he ditched Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund.
Dortmund director Michael Zorc made the revelation earlier this month while insisting that Erling Haaland is going nowhere, admitting that there was interest in their England international last summer.
The decision to reject the chance to stay at City in favour of moving to Germany has been a successful one, with 48 goals and 62 assists coming across his 134 outings for the club.
There has now been an update over the player’s personal stance, and where he might want to play his football next season following England’s European Championships campaign.
German outlet Bild have reported that Sancho has decided to return home this summer – and that both United and Chelsea could do battle for his signature.
They add that while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s bosses refused to match the £108m asking price last time out, they remain keen on the forward and have been joined by Chelsea.
It is also said that Dortmund have dropped their asking price to around £80m, which could give the player a choice between the Europa League and Champions League finalists.
“I don’t know about my future," Sancho told ESPN after Saturday’s victory over RB Leipzig.
"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.”

Zorc had discussed Sancho when asked about Haaland’s future, with agent Mino Raiola open to a move.
He said: ”We already had a gentlemen's agreement with Jadon last year that he can switch under certain conditions. He's been with us for a couple of years.
“However, this agreement does not exist with Erling [Haaland]."
