- Sancho continues to be linked with a move away from Dortmund.
- Manchester United are believed to be leading the race for the Englishman.
- Freund believes the 20-year-old is better off staying in the Bundesliga for now.
"I am not sure if Sancho and Erling Haaland can catch Messi or Ronaldo. They have for years now been the best two players playing at the highest level every season.
"It takes a little bit of time to play against the best teams of the highest level. They have already had a few ups and downs, he played well against PSG [in the Champions League] at home, but he didn't create any chances in Paris.
"As a former player and coach, I would love to see Sancho and Haaland play for another season in the Bundesliga. Can you imagine if they perform and develop even more next season, then Borussia Dortmund can win the league."
Tier-1 Bundesliga source Raphael Honigstein has recently suggested that Man United hold all the cards in the Sancho transfer race although the final decision is unlikely to be made until August.
Interestingly enough, bookmakers at Betfair have reinstalled the Red Devils as favourites to land the 20-year-old when the 2020 summer transfer window opens.
