The latest development in this ongoing story comes from Bild, who report that Dortmund will not be sanctioning any move for Sancho in the upcoming winter window. Despite the ever-growing interest in the 19-year-old, BVB are adamant that he will see out the season in Germany at the very least.
Dortmund's stance follows claims that Chelsea are 'close' to agreeing a deal, now that their transfer ban has been lifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). This follows a report under two weeks ago that suggested Liverpool were also 'monitoring' Sancho's situation, with the financial muscle available to Jurgen Klopp should be wish to make a bid.
What to believe is always tricky in these ongoing sagas, but one thing is definitely true - Sancho is a wanted man, and Dortmund have one hell of a fight on their hands to keep hold of him.
