  • Michael Zorc says Jadon Sancho will stay at Borussia Dortmund next season

"Jadon will play for Borussia Dortmund next season", Zorc told BILD.

Rumoured Manchester United target Jadon Sancho will remain a Borussia Dortmund player next season, according to the German club's sporting director Michael Zorc.

England worldwide Sancho has enjoyed a stunning season at Signal Iduna Park, with eight goals and 10 assists in 25 Bundesliga appearances.

Sancho has emerged a leading target for Manchester United, with the teenager being linked with an £80m summer move to Old Trafford.

Reports on Wednesday morning claimed United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was ready to cancel plans to spend big on a new central defender this summer in order to finance the capture of England winger Sancho, whom it was claimed would be sold by Dortmund for a £100m fee.

"Jadon will play at Dortmund next season".

"I'm far from putting a price tag on Jadon, but I will say that, even for the biggest club in the world, his transfer would be hard right now", Zorc told Sport Bild . We are definitely planning with him.

Ex-United winger Andrei Kanchelskis has also weighed in with his opinion, stating that the former Manchester City starlet would be the ideal fit for his former club.

However, while Zorc is insistent Sancho will not be leaving, he also dropped a huge hint that Dortmund will be open to a deal at some point. The club believes Sancho's rapid development in Germany will persuade the youngster to extend his stay in the Bundesliga for a further season, before returning to a leading Premier League club.
