Why Borussia Dortmund Star Jordan Sancho Rejected A Move To Arsenal?


The English and Borussia Dortmund wonder kid Jadon Sancho has opened up about his childhood club and why he rejected a possible move to Arsenal, the Gunners. The 21-year-old currently plays for Borussia Dortmund as a winger, and he’s known for his creativity, pace, technicality, and one-on-one feints. 

He was at Watford until 2015 when Manchester City signed the young star for a fee rising to £500,000. This is considered an enormous amount for a 14-year-old. He registered 27 goals and assists in the 2016/17 season for Manchester City.

Jadon Sancho recently spoke about his childhood playing days and why he rejected a potential move to Arsenal. According to him, he chose Watford over Arsenal simply because Watford was close to his home. Like seriously, who does that? The young sensation joined Borussia Dortmund in the 2017/18 football season in search of regular first-team football. Dortmund signed him from Manchester City for a fee of £8 million. 

Ever since joining Dortmund, Sancho’s has proven to be a player with top-notch quality. His team failed to progress to the semis of the UEFA Champions League when he missed both home and away fixtures due to an injury.
