Borussia Dortmund have now blamed Manchester United for winger Jadon Sancho’s poor form this season, MySportDab reports.
Dortmund have revealed that Sancho had prepared already for his Manchester United transfer but it never happened.
Sancho was expected to be the most sought after player last summer before the coronavirus pandemic.
During last season, reports claimed that Sancho was ready to return to the Premier League after his rise in the Bundesliga.
In the 2019-20 season, Sancho scored 20 goals, and provided 20 assists across all competitions.
Clubs across Europe were expected to try and sign the Borrusia Dortmund winger, but the COVID-19 crisis affected several clubs severely.
That gave Manchester United a free opportunity run at signing Sancho.
But United refused to pay Dortmund’s outrageous £108m asking price with the saga dragging on until the end of the summer transfer window.
Sancho has struggled to rediscover his form this season after 14 league matches.
However, Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has blamed Manchester United interest for Jadon Sancho’s form this season.
“Yes, Jadon prepared a little too early for a change,” he told Kicker.
“I think he thought about it so much that he lost his ease. He has continued to work very hard for weeks.”
Sancho showed signs of finding his form again at the in the 2-0 win against Wolfsburg as he scored and provided an assist during the Bundesliga match.
However, Watzke has faith in Sancho getting back to his best.
“The difference now is that he did not always think about his action unlike before,” Watzke said.
“Now he thinks so much, and every second that he misses, the opponent is already too close.
“The more you develop as a creative player, the more difficult it gets.”
Jadon Sancho Breaks Borussia Dortmund Rules?
Jadon Sancho took a secret trip without informing Borussia Dortmund to Dubai to for the Christmas Celebration with his father during the winter break.
According to German Newspaper Bild, Sancho was banned from entering England because of the Covid situation.
So Sancho and his father decided to take a family trip to the UAE instead.
The Borussia Dortmund Winger had rarely seen his dad or close family members during the Covid-19 global pandemic.
