Sancho, 17, is one of England's most highly-rated young prospects, having flourished for City's youth and development sides since arriving from Watford in 2015.
The winger, who has 16 goals in 23 caps for England at youth level, may have been tipped for a huge future with the City, but the youngster doesn't quite see it that way.
The Independent note that Sancho is waiting for City to release him so he can join another club in a £4million deal this summer, having turned down a £30,000-a-week contract offer to stay at the Etihad Stadium.
The report claims that Spurs attempted to land Sancho in the deal that saw right back Kyle Walker leave Tottenham for the Etihad Stadium, but City refused that proposal, and instead paid a fee that could reach £54million (The Daily Mail).
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy
Now, Levy and Tottenham could get the player they wanted in that deal for just £4million, and whilst it may still seem like a decent fee for a 17-year-old with no first-team experience, it's just a small fraction of the money earned from Walker's deal.
If Levy can oversee gaining a huge fee for Walker whilst also snatching one of City's most talented young players, then he may well just feel like a winner – even if Tottenham's gains would be with more of a long-term view in Sancho.
