‘Please get him back!!!’ – Fans On Social Media React To Reports That City Have First Option On Signing New England Star

Manchester City do have a first option to re-sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, according to reports in the UK.

The England international left the Citizens during the summer of 2017 in a deal reportedly worth £8million. However, it seems the club could buy him back in the future if Dortmund decides to sell up.

Sancho spent two years in City’s academy but did not make a first-team appearance for the club. Some fans on Twitter are hoping the 18-year-old does return one day:

While others are not so keen after the way he left the Etihad:

The winger has been in superb form for Dortmund so far this season, having scored five goals and provided eight assists in 17 appearances.

Sancho’s performances were rewarded with a call-up to England’s senior side by manager Gareth Southgate. He made his debut in the Nations League against Croatia in a 0-0 draw last month.

He then made his first start against the USA last week and came off the bench for a third cap in the 2-1 comeback victory versus the Croatians on Sunday.
