Man City are preparing to do battle with Man Utd, Liverpool and Chelsea in the race for Jadon Sancho.

The Borussia Dortmund winger has become one of the most sought-after talents in Europe since leaving City in 2017.

And City hope to steal a march on their rivals, by launching a £90 million bid in January, according to the Sun .

City boss Pep Guardiola is keen on boosting his ranks in an effort to reignite his side’s title chances.

Sancho has been performing well in the Bundesliga, but boss Lucien Favre could be open to selling the 19-year-old to fund a move for Erling Haaland .

Man City are ready to join the race for Jadon Sancho

The Dortmund coach has already had a run-in with Sancho this season, after he arrived back late from international duty and was fined £86,000 by the club.

Now Sancho could be prepared to return to England, with no shortage of interested clubs.

He turned down the chance to stay at City in order to gain first team experience at Dortmund, who signed him for £8 million.

That would see the German club pocket a tidy profit on their original investment, and allow them up to move for Red Bull Salzburg hotshot Haaland.

The players representatives have already been in talks with Dortmund over a potential move, along with his ex-professional father Alfe-Inge Haaland.

Meanwhile Guardiola has Leroy Sane returning from injury, which could put his move to Dortmund’s rivals Bayern Munich back on.

That would also free up a space in Guardiola’s squad which Sancho would be able to fill.

Perhaps more pressing to Guardiola though is the prospect of losing his assistant manager, Mikel Arteta, in the coming weeks.

Arteta has been linked with the managers jobs at two of his former clubs – Arsenal and Everton .

Guardiola said of the 37-year-old: “You can be a 45-year-old and believe you’re not ready (to become a manager) and 35 and believe you’re ready, only he knows.

“I’ve spoken about the situation a few weeks ago, there’s no more to add. I said two weeks ago, he’s got two weeks more experience, so he’s ready.”
