Recap: Burnley vs Manchester United 1:0/Sport1
The Jadon Sancho and Manchester United saga refuses to make headlines in England after the Daily Mail reported that the England winger deleted his Instagram profile and the Red Devils began looking for options to sell the player during the season. Already during the summer, along with many European football stars, teams from Saudi Arabia, led by Al-Ittifaq, Steven Gerrard's team, expressed interest in the talented Englishman, but Sancho decided to stay and fight for his place in the line-up for Manchester United.
The newest and perhaps the most senior candidate to sign him is Borussia Dortmund, the Englishman's former team. Before joining Erik Anne Hatach's side two years ago, Sancho did well in Germany with incredible ability for the yellow-and-black, scoring 50 goals and adding 64 assists in 137 appearances for Dortmund.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, the Germans are indeed interested in signing Sancho, but are concerned about two main things - the price United will pose when they are unwilling to loan the player, and the winger's sleep due to his many hours playing video games. The German club claim that the latter reason is very important to them, and that reports in England that Sancho was often late for training under Ten Hag may have been one of the reasons to exclude him from the squad for that game against Arsenal.
