Jadon Sancho has been pictured jetting off to an unknown destination on a private plane ahead of what is set to be a busy summer for the Borussia Dortmund forward.

Another sparkling season in the Bundesliga saw Sancho’s stock continue to rise, having lit up the division with an incredible volume of goal contributions since joining from Manchester City in 2017.

With the season over for Sancho and Dortmund, the 20-year-old has been granted some time off to relax, with the most recent updates on his whereabouts seeing him board a private jet alongside former Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom, via his Instagram.

It’s not known exactly where the plane was heading, but the speculation has already began with suggestions he is on his way to the UK, and possibly Manchester. Not a known holiday destination by any means, that probably isn’t the case, though.

Sancho spoke recently about his future, neither committing himself to Dortmund or insisting he will leave for another club: “I don’t know what to say to that. It’s hard to say. That’s the future.”

In regards to his future, way in front of other interested parties are Manchester United, who 90min have revealed as far back as September 2019 were ‘confident’ of luring him to Old Trafford. Since then there have been regular updates, but the Red Devils have remained the front runners throughout.

While both parties have been in talks for a while, the major sticking point has been finding an agreement on a fee. Die Borussen are pushing for a figure in the region of £100m, but there appears to have been a breakthrough in that department with the German side willing to accept an up-front £60m, one that includes substantial bonuses to reach nine figures.

That said, discussions are still ongoing and issues such as the payment schedule are not agreed upon, with work still to be done in that respect.
