English talisman Jadon Sancho has been rumoured to be the target of a €120 million bid from Manchester United, but it remains to be seen whether a deal will be struck. 

An analyst expects the club's EBITDA to drop from €116 million to €62.3 million primarily due to costs associated with the coronavirus pandemic.

Dortmund's cash and cash equivalents should fall by more than €40 million.

Turnover is estimated to decline by around €10 million.
