Jadon Sancho mindset explained by Dortmund team-mate amid Man Utd transfer saga

Manchester United target Jadon Sancho is perfectly happy at Borussia Dortmund, claims his team-mate Roman Burki.

The winger continues to be linked with a move to the Red Devils, despite the Bundesliga outfit sticking firm to their £100m valuation.

Sancho has recently spoken out, claiming he is more than content being a part of the Dortmund group despite the ongoing transfer saga.

But United fans continue to dream of the 20-year-old in a red shirt before the end of the summer transfer window.

Burki has done little to fill those supporters with hope, claiming that Sancho remains happy to part of the German side.

"I wasn't 100 per cent expecting him to stay, but I hoped he would," he told Kicker.

"It has always been clear that you have to pay a certain amount of money to buy a player of his quality but because of the coronavirus pandemic, it's not as easy for the clubs as it was before.

"I don't believe Jadon is sad that he will continue with Borussia Dortmund. He comes to training with a smile on his face and is happy to be with us.

"I am not aware of any current events that give cause for criticism. Jadon hasn't done anything wrong in two and a half weeks of pre-season so far."

"Jadon is still a top player next year. Time is not running out for him. Besides, he has developed as a personality.

"I am not aware of any current events that give cause for criticism. Jadon hasn't done anything wrong in two and a half weeks of pre-season so far."

When asked about his happiness earlier this month, Sancho said: "I love playing with this lot. It is a special bunch. We've got some special young players coming up.
