Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has ruled out the possibility of Jadon Sancho returning to the club from Borussia Dortmund this summer.
Sancho’s quick development and high-quality performances since leaving the Etihad in 2017 have put him under the radars of all the top clubs around Europe, and at the moment it’s anyone’s guess where he’ll be playing next season, though it seems likely that he stays at the Signal Iduna Park given that Dortmund have been quite clear about the Covid-19 pandemic and the financial situations of potential buyers would have no effect on the prices of their players. They reportedly value Sancho at around €120 million.
Speaking to the press ahead of his team’s showdown with newly crowned Premier League champions Liverpool at the Etihad on Thursday, Guardiola was asked whether City would be moving to bring the 20-year-old winger back, and his response was clear – no.
Guardiola elaborated on the stance by pointing out that Sancho, like Leroy Sane this summer, wanted to leave the club. He didn’t want to be there and there’s no point in him returning.
