Jadon Sancho offer
Borussia Dortmund rejected an approach for Jadon Sancho from a ‘super club’, according to the club’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.
Real Madrid and Manchester United were frequently linked with the England international during the summer.
And Hans-Joachim Watzke confirmed a club of their stature launched an enquiry.
“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,” Watzke told Ruhrnachrichten.
Neymar is worried Barcelona will end their quest to clinch his signature.
That’s reportedly what super-agent Pini Zahavi has told Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who is desperate to secure the 27-year-old’s signature.
Zahavi, who brokered Neymar’s £200million move in 2017, has again been involved as Neymar seeks a move away from the Parc des Princes.
Mundo Deportivo journalist Francesc Aguilar tweeted: “Pini Zahavi has convinced Florentino that Neymar is beginning to worry about the rejection of his signing among Barcelona, which is getting bigger every day.”
The Brazilian’s preference is to re-join Barcelona but if they are unable to negotiate a deal with PSG – Real Madrid could become a tempting option.
Neymar medical concerns
PSG doctors have warned that Neymar’s foot injury could be more serious than previously thought.
That’s according to French newspaper Le Parisien, who claim PSG’s medical staff believe his injury has not been properly treated and could potentially sideline him for several months.
The 27-year-old has been plagued by injury to his fifth metatarsal over the past 18 months – and Le Parisien suggest that some believe the treatment he received before the 2018 World Cup was not sufficient.
Spanish publication AS claim the PSG star may have pseudarthrosis, which could require a bone graft to fully correct.
