The Red Devils are continuing their pursuit of the England star despite his club’s €120 million (£108m/$142m) asking price
Jadon Sancho has sent a message to Manchester United amid his ongoing transfer saga, insisting that he’s happy at Borussia Dortmund and that he loves playing with his youthful team-mates.
Sancho played 45 minutes in Wednesday’s friendly against Rheindorf Altach, with Dortmund emerging 6-0 winners over the Austrian side.
Man Utd are in hot pursuit of the 20-year-old winger, who has emerged as one of Europe’s top players since joining Dortmund from Man City in 2017.
Dortmund have continued to stonewall the Red Devils, with the club’s sporting director Michael Zorc declaring on Monday that Sancho will stay with the Bundesliga runners-up.
“Jadon Sancho will play with us next season,” Zorc said. “The decision is final. I think that answers all the questions.”
United, though, have not given up hope despite Dortmund sticking to their €120 million (£108m/$142m) asking price for the England star.
Sancho did appear to have a message for United on Wednesday, however, as he underlined his happiness at his current club.
“I love playing with this lot,” Sancho told BVB-TV. “It is a special bunch. We’ve got some special young players coming up. I am really happy to share the pitch with them and guide them.
