Jadon Sancho insists he is happy at Borussia Dortmund and remains indebted to the Bundesliga club amid fresh speculation surrounding his future. The England international endured a difficult start to the current season, but is ending the campaign in superb form ahead of the European Championships. Sancho scored twice, including a later winner, in Saturday’s 3-2 win over RB Leipzig which kept Dortmund’s hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League alive. Participation in Europe’s elite club competition is likely to have a significant bearing on Dortmund’s ability to keep hold of their prize assets in the summer, with the continent’s elite clubs monitoring the situations of Sancho and Erling Haaland.
United missed out on signing the 21-year-old 12 months ago after failing to agree a fee with the German club, but reports earlier this week claimed Dortmund had significantly lowered their asking price to between €85-90million amid the financial ramifications of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Liverpool, like United, are keen to bolster their attacking options ahead of next season, especially in light of the doubts surrounding Mohamed Salah’s future and are among a group of clubs, along with Chelsea, who are ready to pounce. Speaking after Saturday’s match, which saw Sancho score his seventh goal in his last 11 games, the former Manchester City winger gave no indication that he would be looking to return to England any time soon.
Will I leave the club? I don’t know about my future,’ he said. ‘I am very happy here in Dortmund at the moment. I love the club, the fans and the team. They gave me my first professional start.’
