    Probably the best talent England have produced in many a year, ripping it up for their under 17's in the European Championships at the minute. Has been top, top quality for Man City underage for a while now too.

    It's an incredibly talented age group for England with our own Angel Gomes, City's Phil Foden and Rhian Brewster of Liverpool all likely to have big careers. Gomes is injured so has missed the tournament but England have reached the final - Sancho has supplied 5 goals so far, some of which have been top quality.

    He's locked in talks with City over a new contract at present - the money on the table is staggering apparently. Lots of other clubs naturally circling. Will be very interesting to see how his career pans out but on pure talent alone he could be a future Ballon d'Or winner.

    Can't say I know anything about him but the biggest challenge for him will be breaking into the city first team as they are already stacked full of young attacking talent so he's got a real fight on his hands to make the next step.

    This is a problem for English talent we seem to do ok at these youth tournaments but so little of it breaks through.

    Arsenal seem the likeliest to nab him which would be a major coup for them. He scored this goal against their under 18's last season:

    For all the furore about Phil Foden's showing against us, Sancho regularly outshines him. Whether he goes on to have a better professional career than Foden is another question but he's shown a lot more so far.

    Reports in the telegraph that he hasn't returned to training at City as he's got the hump about not going on the pre season tour and wants out of the club.

    They're even reporting that the club can't even get hold of the player.

    Borussia Dortmund have signed Manchester City youngster Jadon Sancho.
    The highly-rated England youth international wanted to leave City and had stopped training.
    City gave him permission to speak to Dortmund, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid only - no British clubs.


    He'll be off to Barca for about £300m next summer then.

    Got Dembele's number 7 shirt as well.

    Never seen the guy play but he clearly has potential and for Dortmund to give him a high profile shirt they must think he's ready for the first team already.

    Lot of young British players moving abroad this summer. Be very interesting to see how they get on.

    Schurrle and Reus both out injured so maybe just maybe he might have a chance. Really hope so. At least he went i suppose. That Vinicius Junior who Real have signed for something stupid like £35 million wasn't even allowed to leave Flamengo.
