Salihamidzic confirms Sancho rejected Bayern Munich for BVB

Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has confirmed Jadon Sancho rejected the Bundesliga champions in favour of joining Borussia Dortmund.

The 18-year-old joined Dortmund from Manchester City in the summer of 2017, in a deal reportedly worth £8 million.

"The truth is that Bayern Munich did want to sign Jadon Sancho and made him an offer which he, unfortunately, refused," Salihamidzic told Sport Bild .

Sancho has excelled for Dortmund this season under Lucien Favre. The Englishman has scored 5 goals and provided eight assists in 15 appearances.
