Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc says Jadon Sancho will stay put amid Manchester United interest

Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc says Jadon Sancho will play for them next season despite Manchester United interest: ‘His transfer would be difficult even for the biggest clubs’

  • Manchester United are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho 
  • The 19-year-old has lit up the Bundesliga this season since making his £8m move
  • Dortmund chief Michael Zorc ruled out a summer return to England for Sancho
  • While he admitted he would eventually leave, Zorc said Sancho wasn’t for sale

Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has insisted that Jadon Sancho will not be going anywhere this summer as Manchester United continue to show an interest in the youngster.

After leaving Manchester City in 2017 in search for more first-team action, Sancho has proven himself to be one of England’s most exciting prospects with a string of brilliant performances in the Bundesliga for Dortmund.

The 19-year-old is now one of the most sought-after talents in world football and United chiefs are keen to bring him back to England.

However, Zorc has insisted that any big club wanting to buy Sancho this summer would struggle and reported talks with United have ‘no relevance’ because the winger will be staying put at Signal Iduna Park. 

On the reports linking Sancho with a move to Old Trafford, Zorc told Bild: ‘I have no knowledge of it, but it has no relevance.’

While a move for Sancho would be tough for any club this summer, Zorc did admit that the youngster would be unlikely to retire at Dortmund.

He added: ‘I’m far from putting a price tag on Jadon. 

The 19-year-old has scored eight goals in the Bundesliga and has set up team-mates 15 times

‘But I say: his transfer would be difficult even for the biggest clubs in the world at the moment. Jadon will play for Borussia Dortmund next season. 

‘He certainly will not play until his retirement in Dortmund. That is also true.’

Sancho’s impressive performances have also seen him break into the England team and has earned four caps since making his debut last October.

Since completing his £8million move from City, Sancho has made 26 appearances in the Bundesliga and has impressively gone on to score eight goals and set up his team-mates 15 times.
