Arsenal's hopes of landing Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund have been dealt a blow with the news that Manchester City do have the option to re-sign the player.

Sancho could soon be the most expensive Englishman of all time.

Sancho has been included in the senior England squad for their upcoming matches against Croatia and Spain in the UEFA Nations League, live on Sky Sports Football.

"That's mad! Woah! I don't know what to say to that", he replied when quizzed on such a prospect.

"I've played with Mason Mount as well, so it gives you a bit more of an incentive that you can actually do it".

Chelsea are likely to face competition from Manchester City in the race to sign Jadon Sancho after it was revealed the Premier League champions do have the first refusal on the player.

"Christian Pulisic is another young guy, and I learn from him". I'm just grateful [Southgate] has seen my progress in the Bundesliga.

Sancho added: "Not everyone is comfortable moving from home". Thrust into a news conference on Tuesday - his first full day as an England player - the 18-year-old winger found himself in the spotlight and cut a slightly nervous figure as he was bombarded with questions about his blossoming career. If you're ready to play overseas and you believe in yourself, why not? As part of a punishment dating back to an incident in 2015, when a swastika was daubed on the pitch in Split before a game against Italy, the World Cup finalists will play this game behind closed doors.

"That won't faze me at all", he said. "I'm playing for my country".

They can cash in on a reported £70-90 million for the United States of America star. I don't know. It's the future. "I don't know what to say to that", he said, smiling. "We'll wait and see".
