Jadon Sancho respects Borussia Dortmund’s decision not to sell him, and he will NOT try and force a move away from the club.

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc confirmed yesterday that Jadon Sancho will be staying at the club, despite rumours linking him with a move to Manchester United. Zorc also revealed that Dortmund had secretly extended the England international’s contract until 2023 last year.

But even the definite statement of Michael Zorc did not stop English media from putting the matter to bed, with some now saying that Sancho would would just force a move away from Dortmund, like Ousmane Dembele did in 2017.

It looks like Manchester United fans are set to be disappointed again, as Sancho respects the club’s decision, and will continue to play with the same commitment as he did last season. This was reported by Kicker in their Monday issue. BILD also say that Borussia Dortmund do not expect Sancho to try and force a move.

"Michael Zorc is quoted as saying, “Of course we have been in contact with his advisor recently, we have a very good relationship with one another. But the club’s decision is respected by both the agency and the player.”"

Meanwhile, Ruhr Nachrichten report that Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans Joachim Watzke had informed Manchester United of their asking price and the deadline of August 10 on a telephone call at the end of June.

With Sancho now having three years left on his current contract, Borussia Dortmund are under absolutely no pressure to sell him this summer. Combine that with Manchester United’s insistence on not paying the asking price of 120 million euros, and the only takeaway is that the 20 year old will be lining up in Black and Yellow next season.
