Borussia Dortmund eyeing Barcelona star to replace Sancho, Real Madrid receive positive injury update and more

After reducing their asking price of Sancho to €100m, Dortmund are bracing themselves for the departure of the 20-year-old old in the summer transfer window.

Borussia Dortmund have identified Barcelona wonderkid Ansu Fati as the replacement of Jadon Sancho, reports Spanish publication Sport.

Fati made his debut for Barcelona at age 16 when he played in the final few minutes of his side’s 5-2 win over Real Betis in September last year. He then played on the following weekend against Osasuna and netted his first goal for the club in a 2-2 stalemate.

The Catalan giants are confident that the 17-year-old has what it takes to represent the club for years to come. That is why they are reportedly considering an option where the forward would leave the club temporarily to get more playing minutes than he would at the Nou Camp.

Sport claims that Dortmund are aware of this stance and are prepared to wait as they know that any deal involving Fati would be tricky considering that there are multiple clubs in La Liga who are also interested in the winger’s signature.

Although football remains suspended across all the Europe’s big leagues due to the coronavirus pandemic, Los Blancos have received a positive injury update on one of their players.

Eden Hazard has been working with the ball at his feet in the last few days and has also started running, giving a major injury boost to Real Madrid.

The 29-year-old has everything going against him since his move to the Spanish capital from Chelsea last summer. Repeated injuries limited him to making just 15 appearances for Los Blancos in all competitions before the latest foot injury ruled the Belgian out of action in December.

However, if AS are to be believed, the winger is getting ready to get back in action as he has started working with the foot that he injured in a league game in December.

It will take some time for him to regain his full fitness, but it will be promising for his manager Zinedine Zidane to note that the Belgian has started taking steps toward a full recovery.
