Borussia Dortmund chiefs reportedly believe Jadon Sancho will leave the club when the summer transfer window opens.
Sancho, 20, has been regularly linked with a move to the Premier League with Manchester United and former club Manchester City among those interested.
The England star was wanted by the Red Devils last summer though a deal did not materialise with Dortmund’s asking price believed to have been too high.
Though reports from Germany suggest the Bundesliga side would be satisfied with less money this time around.
And Sport1 even add that Dortmund chiefs assume Sancho will leave the club in the next transfer window.
Sancho’s contract ends in the summer of 2022 and the Bundesliga side may wish to cash in before the final year of his deal.
Sport1 also add that Dortmund’s need to sell any of other stars will increase if they fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
They currently sit sixth in the Bundesliga table, 16 points behind runaway leaders Bayern Munich.
Sancho has racked up eight goals along with 13 assists in 26 appearances this season after a slow start to the campaign.
He previously said: "Obviously this season has been very difficult for me personally.
"So I knew when I went away, I just focused on my game and came back raring to go.
"I'm working hard every day in training and on the pitch so I'm just happy to get my goals and assists."
Dortmund boss Edin Terzic also spoke about Sancho's dip in form, saying: "We spoke a lot but Jadon was always doing his best in the last weeks and months, but sometimes it's like that.
"Players are not always performing on this level. He knew that. He stayed hungry and we tried to support him as a team."
