- Sancho continues to be linked with a move away from Dortmund.
- Real Madrid are believed to be weighing up a move for the Englishman.
- Freund reckons the 20-year-old is better off staying in the Bundesliga for now.
- While in some games Sancho is brilliant, in others he fails to make an impact.
"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."
Rio Ferdinand seems to think that Sancho is already nearing Cristiano's level:
Well, if we measure any player, not just Sancho or Haaland, by comparing him to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, none of these would ever be ready to leave their respective clubs. So Steffen Freund should probably lower his bar just a bit.
According to The Athletic, a tier-one source, Manchester United are front-runners for the Englishman.
However, It's been suggested recently that Borussia Dortmund will not let Sancho go for anything less than £105 million this summer.
This is despite knowing the current climate will make it difficult for Real Madrid or any other interested club spend heavily in the post-coronavirus market.
The 20-year-old has scored 17 and set up 19 goals in 35 outings for BVB this season. His current contract expires in 2022.
