Another blow for Zinadine Zidane after Borussia Dortmund refused their bid to sign their only forward Jadon Sancho.


Borussia Dortmund knocked back the advances of one of Europe’s “super clubs” when questions were asked of Jadon Sancho, claims club CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.


The 19-year-old winger continued his meteoric rise during the 2018-19 campaign.


The club management has declined any move from any club to sign Sancho. They said he has helped Dortmund to compete with German giants Bayern Munich.


Watzke has now revealed that questions were asked of the teenager’s future, telling Ruhr Nachrichten: “A chief of one of the super clubs asked me back in spring if there was a chance [to sign Sancho] but I told him straight away he should forget about it and he never contacted me again.


“He knew I meant what I said.”


Dortmund has stated at regular intervals that they have no intention of selling Sancho any time soon, on top they have extended his contract with Dortmund.
