BVB chief Watzke warns Chelsea, Man Utd over Sancho price

Borussia Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke has warned interested clubs they won't get their stars on the cheap.

With Manchester United and Chelsea eyeing Jadon Sancho, it's been suggested BVB may be prepared to sell for a cut-price fee due to the coronavirus financial downturn.

But Watzke insists: "I can clearly say that even the very rich clubs, despite the existential crisis, do not have to believe that they can go on a bargain tour with us. We don't have to sell anyone under value.

"The sums could drop a little. But I don't think it will drop as significantly as one would like. Football is now simply too globalised."
