Dortmund chief makes fresh Jadon Sancho transfer statement amid Man Utd contract claims

Manchester United target Jadon Sancho is ‘happy to stay’ at Borussia Dortmund this summer, despite strong interest from the Red Devils. That’s according to Dortmund chief Sebastian Kehl.

United have been after Sancho’s signature since last summer but the winger decided to stay in Germany for one more season.

Dortmund would like around £108million for Sancho but United aren’t said to be anywhere near that price after reigniting their interest earlier this summer.

Dortmund are insistent that United will get no ‘coronavirus discount’ and they want paying in full.

But executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has yet to budge, and it’s now looking unlikely United will sign Sancho.

And Kehl, who used to play for Dortmund himself, says Sancho has no problem staying with he Bundesliga club for another season.

“Jadon is happy to stay. He has a contract until 2023,” Kehl said.

“I see him on the pitch and he is very happy.

“Everyone is very happy to have him. He is going to be here for at least one more season.

“This team is the best we had. We have a mixture of very good, young, and mature players.

“We tried to develop the team in the last few years.

“Hopefully we can win titles in the next season because titles are what matter the most in the end.”

Sancho’s team-mate Thomas Delaney has also expressed his confidence that the forward will stay in Germany.

“Jadon will be playing for us,” Delaney said.

“He is a great talent. I hope he will help us win great things. I embrace him with open arms.”
