Bundesliga giants eyeing top Manchester City talent

Jayden Braaf is touted to be the next Jadon Sancho and clubs are lining up already for the 18-year-old.


Three years back when Jadon Sancho left Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund, no one expected Sancho to become the player that he is today. The English winger’s game has grown by leaps and bounds he has got a searing market value. Not to forget, the 20-year-old is tipped with a move back to the Premier League. Unfortunately for City fans though, Sancho is tipped with a move to Manchester United. Dortmund are well aware of the fact that the Sancho transfer will be complete at the end of the season and the Bundesliga giants are on the lookout for other long-term replacements. For that, they turned their head towards Manchester City’s U23 sensation, Jaydn Braaf. Dortmund’s interest in Braaf is well documented but fellow rivals Bayer Leverkusen are set to enter the race for 18-year-old, as per Sport Witness.


It is believed that Manchester City have learned from their past mistake and to prevent any Sanho-like situation, the Cityzens are rumored to include a buy-back clause in the deal and a sell-on clause. Having said that, it must be mentioned that having a buy-back clause in place for a player who is embedded with loads of potential, is a really smart move. Braaf’s market value is set around the region of £10 million.


Manchester City are interested in one of Dortmund’s main-players and he is none other than Erling Braut Haaland. The Norwegian striker has impressed one and all with his displays at Dortmund. The 20-year-old has already got 82 goals next to his name in such quick time and can easily be the strike force of a team for the next 10 years.


Coming to Jayden Braaf, if forced to make a choice, Manchester City must choose to sell Braaf to Dortmund as the former Bundesliga champions are known to groom world-class talents. Braaf can be expected to find himself some regular amounts of minutes on the pitch.

With the winter window close to reaching its half-way stage, who do you think Manchester City must sign or offload?
