Delaney reckons BVB star Sancho is already feeling the heat.
England international Sancho is a man in demand but BVB are not keen to let one of their talented players leave the club.
Borussia Dortmund star Thomas Delaney believes his team-mate Jadon Sancho is feeling the pressure that comes with being linked with elite clubs across Europe.
The England winger has been constantly linked with a move away from the Signal Iduna Park during the COVID-19 shutdown, with Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea reportedly monitoring the 20-year-old’s situation with the Black and Yellow.
"He's clearly one of the biggest talents that I've played with," he told ESPN's Gab & Juls podcast. "With that talent comes a lot of pressure, and I think he slowly starts to feel that from the England national team and clubs surrounding him now.
"Up until this point, he's been a talent performing very well, performing better than what he is expected to do, but there was always going to be a next step, and that's going to be interesting, [the] next step in his career and his development.
"Only looking at his skills, he definitely has what it takes to become one of the five biggest players in the world. You see big talents go to waste, and I would say that he's already done enough to prove himself.
"He's 19 and he's got the most goal involvements in the league together with Timo Werner and [Robert] Lewandowski, which is amazing, but he should strive for more."
