Dortmund re-iterate that Sancho will stay.
After Manchester United’s heavy interest in Jadon Sancho this year, it now seems that the English star is set to remain in the Bundesliga.
Borussia Dortmund’s director, Sebastian Kehl, has said that although Sancho may leave the club in the future, a move will not be possible during this current transfer window.
The interest that has been shown in the forward over the past season is not reflective of Dortmund’s view on their future star. Dortmund have re-iterated that club and player are both happy with the current situation.
Manchester United have struggled to compete with the rest of the English Premier League in this years summer window and their desperation to bolster their attack with Jadon Sancho was no secret.
United however, were not willing to meet the transfer price Dortmund have set for their star man.
Reports tell that Dortmund required the deal to be met as of August 10 but United failed to meet the required €120m asking price.
Borussia Dortmund proceeded to disallow any transfers offers for Sancho as to include him in their plans for the current season and beyond. It is also well understood that the Bundesliga side now do no intend on letting him go for the foreseeable future.
Jadon Sancho has now spoken publicly on how happy he is with his current club.
Sebastian Kehl once more reiterated:
“Sancho has trained well and professionally,” Kehl told Ruhr Nachrichten.
“He is happy to play football.”
“Yes, someday he might leave for a new challenge but right now he is happy at Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Dortmund is happy to have him.”
“He is here and he will stay here. It was an important statement from the club because we have a certain responsibility. Without him, this team is worse.”
Taking this into consideration it is safe to say that Dortmund will have a greater chance at dethroning Bayern Munich with Jadon Sancho remaining in their ranks.
Manchester United on the other hand will need to look elsewhere in order to bring a blockbuster signing to Old Trafford.
