According to a recent report by Bild, Real Madrid and Barcelona have both entered the race to secure the signature of Jadon Sancho during the summer transfer window. Even though it seemed like Manchester United were in pole position to sign the English prospect, yet the German news outlet has now claimed that Los Blancos are prepared to crash their party by targeting a summer move for the talented playmaker.
Sancho’s Glowing Reputation In German Football
Sancho has established himself as a consistent performer at Signal Iduna Park over the past few seasons since joining from Manchester City in the summer of 2017. He has won over the Dortmund fans by producing several match-winning displays under the stewardship of Lucien Favre. The 20-year-old has participated in 35 matches for the Bundesliga outfit this term, netting 17 goals and creating 19 assists on all fronts which is an excellent record for a playmaker of his age group.
The England international has averaged 2.0 shots, 2.3 key passes and 2.6 dribbles in every 90 minutes of the 23 league matches he has been a part of this season (stats via whoscored). His sensational productivity in the final third over the past nine months has made him a must-see attraction in the German top-flight. Hence, it is no surprise that so many top clubs, including Los Blancos, are ready to battle it out for his signature in this off-season.
Sancho has already built a strong reputation at the international level after impressing as part of Gareth Southgate’s England national side. He has earned 11 senior caps for the Three Lions thus far, registering two goals in the process. If the London-born wide player can maintain his high standards over the next 12 months, then he will be nailed-on start for his country in next year’s UEFA European Championship.
What Will The English Whizkid Bring To The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium?
Sancho is highly versatile as he can operate as a winger on either flank and that is what makes him such an indispensable member of Favre’s starting XI. The English starlet can also use his blistering speed and agility to get to the by-line and cause a lot of problems for the opposition defenders. He can beat his marker off the dribble using clever turns and trickery and has transformed himself into a consistent goal-scorer and assist-maker at the highest level.
Plus, the ex-Man City wonderkid hardly throws away possession as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 84.4% in the Bundesliga this season (stats via whoscored). What makes him such a feared attacker in German football is his reliability in being prolific in front of the opposition goal. Sancho has the ceiling to become a generational talent if given a nurturing environment to develop his overall game in the years to come.
Real Madrid could prove to be an ideal home for him as he would get the chance to showcase his skills and reach for the stars under the watchful eyes of France legend and Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane. Sancho will not only add a lot of goals and invention to the Madrid attack but also improve the overall quality of Zidane’s first XI. With Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio all struggling to show a clean bill of health at the Spanish capital during this season, it’s high time that the La Liga giants recruited a new attacker to provide more competition for the likes of Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior and Isco in the race to secure a regular starting berth in Zidane’s frontline.
Sancho will be an ideal summer signing for Los Blancos as he ticks all the right boxes as far as what it means to become a future Galactico is concerned. The English playmaker could potentially help the Spanish outfit reach the summit of European football once again if he can continue improving himself with each season.
