Borussia Dortmund chief updates on Jadon Sancho link with Chelsea

Dortmund won’t sell Sancho in January – Zorc


Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has clarified that the club are unlikely to sanction the sale of Jadon Sancho in January amid the widespread interest from Chelsea.

Sancho has been a revelation for the German giants over the past 18 months and in the current campaign, he has already amassed nine goals and 10 assists in all competitions.

Despite this, there has been the talk of him making a possible return to the Premier League amid claims that he has a mixed relationship with manager Lucien Favre.

Speaking to Bild, Zorc has now clarified that Dortmund have not changed their transfer stance on Sancho and the England international is expected to remain with the club for the campaign.

“We’re continuing to plan with him. He’s a fundamental player for us and I do not see any scenario where he leaves us,” he was quoted as saying by the German publication.

Chelsea have recently been tipped to make a £100m bid to land Sancho and it remains to be seen whether they can reach a similar transfer agreement to that of Christian Pulisic whereby the forward could be loaned back to Dortmund for the rest of the season.

Sancho not for sale in January

German giants Borussia Dortmund have no plans of parting ways with Jadon Sancho in the New Year amid the speculated interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United.

The England international has been reported to be unsettled due to the recent criticism of his attitude from manager Lucien Favre and there have been claims that he could leave the Bundesliga side in the New Year.

According to Bild, Dortmund have no desire to cash in on their prized asset at the turn of the year and they are prepared to wait until the summer before considering his future.

Manchester United and Real Madrid have recently been linked with a £100m swoop for Sancho and reports have also claimed that Chelsea could join the race once their transfer ban concludes.

Chelsea are not permitted to make any new signings until July 2020 but they are said to be confident of reducing the transfer ban after making their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has clarified that Manchester United were nowhere close to signing Jadon Sancho during the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils were linked with a potential club-record move for the England international last summer with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aiming to strengthen the squad with younger players with pedigree.

However, no agreement was reached between the clubs for the highly-rated winger and Zorc has now confirmed that his team refused to hold a meeting with the Red Devils for Sancho.

“Not close at all. We didn’t talk to them. They were asking us for a meeting. Sancho is not for sale,” he was quoted as saying by Viasport.

Sancho has been a revelation for Dortmund over the past 18 months and he has started the current campaign in fine form with two goals and four assists from just four league appearances.

He has also excelled with the England national side and recently bagged his first two goals for the Three Lions during the 5-3 triumph over Kosovo in a Euro 2020 qualifier.
