Jadon Sancho ‘signs new Borussia Dortmund contract’ with staggering wage rise

Jadon Sancho 'signs new Borussia Dortmund contract' with staggering wage rise


Jadon Sancho has reportedly signed a new long-term deal with Borussia Dortmund that will see him pocket a staggering £190,000-per-week.

The 19-year-old forward shot to prominence for the German club last season having left Man City in 2017 in favour of first-team football.

He has become a key performer for his club and country after making his England debut back in October, and has been rewarded by Dortmund with a new contract.

The Mail report that Sancho has already agreed terms on the deal which will earn him just shy of £10 million a year.

Dortmund have gone all out to tie down their star player following interest from elite clubs across Europe.

Man Utd and PSG have both showed an interest in Sancho, but he has opted to extend his stay in the Bundesliga.

Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke previously revealed the club rejected an approach from a big side at the end of last season.

Watzke told Ruhr Nachrichten ( via MEN ): “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.”

Sancho’s previous deal was due to run until 2022, but Dortmund moved quickly to fend off interest from elsewhere and boost the youngsters £75,000-per-week wages.

He was in impressive form for the Bundesliga runners-up last campaign, scoring 13 times and providing 15 assists.

However despite his commitment to Dortmund, Watzke previously admitted he was aware that Sancho would not be around forever.

“There aren’t many 19-year-olds with such a potential,” he said.

“He is also not a player from the region or one who would have any connection to it.

“When you have a player like Jadon Sancho, you must reassess the situation every single year. Everything else would not be honest.

“If a foreign player is not convinced that the club is right for him at the exact time, it just does not make any sense [to keep him].”
