Jadon Sancho breaks Bundesliga scoring record to help Dortmund trounce rivals Schalke in derby

JADON SANCHO let Erling Haaland grab the headlines in Borussia Dortmund’s 4-0 demolition of rivals Schalke but ended up making history himself.

Sancho’s opening goal paved the way for Haaland’s brace and a strike from Raphael Guerreiro poured the misery on Schalke in an embarrassingly one-sided Revierderby.

And the England man has now become the youngest player in Bundesliga history to score 35 league goals.

Sancho, still just 20, made his mark with a deft strike from the edge of the box before turning provider for an acrobatic effort from Haaland.

It was his fifth league goal of the season and ensured he has written himself into German football history.

And it was yet more painful viewing for Manchester United fans – with England winger slipping through Old Trafford chief Ed Woodward’s fingers last summer.

United are still interested in Sancho and his partner-in-crime Haaland, and with Dortmund desperate to keep hold of the Norweigan, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men may have another shot at Sancho in the summer.

According to German paper Bild, Dortmund are willing to listen to offers of around £104million for Sancho as they look to recoup losses caused by coronavirus.

Despite Haaland reportedly having a clause in his contract allowing him to leave for just £65m in 2022, Dortmund are set on keeping the jewel in their crown beyond this summer.

That could pave the way for Sancho leading a host of big names out of the Signal Iduna Park.

United are ready to battle local rivals City for Haaland, but are ready to reignite last summer’s failed bid for Sancho – whose Dortmund departure was claimed to be ‘set in stone’ last week.

Dortmund still lie a disappointing sixth in the Bundesliga under interim boss Edin Terzic, leaving them with an uphill battle to qualify for the Champions League – and facing an exodus of their star players if they fail to make the cut.
