Spurs face competition from three clubs for Man City teenager


Manchester City risk losing England under-17 star Jadon Sancho this summer, with four clubs now in the hunt for his signature.

The Mirror report Borussia Dortmund will now battle Tottenham, Arsenal, and Bundesliga runners-up RB Leipzig for the winger, who is stalling on a new deal worth £30,000 a weeek with the Citizens.


That uncertainty has prompted his current club to leave him out of their pre-season tour of the US.

The starlet is concerned that first team opportunities will be limited at the Etihad, with a recent Press Association study finding that City fielded the lowest total of UK-developed Academy players in the Premier League.


Arsenal were ranked highest, which would certainly be a selling point, while Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has one of the best reputations in Europe for developing young talents.

Dortmund stars watched Sancho at the under-17 European Championships in May, where he had a big hand in helping England to the final.

If he does leave City at the end of his contract next summer, they will be owed compensation because he will have completed their scholarship programme. The fee will be significantly lower, however, than if he were a senior player.
