Man Utd given another Jadon Sancho transfer warning as Dortmund chief claims 'we are very happy he's staying'

MANCHESTER UNITED have been thrown yet another Jadon Sancho transfer warning, after a latest Dortmund chief declared "we are very happy he's staying".

The Red Devils have been chasing Sancho for most of 2020, having made him their No1 target.

But having missed Dortmund's August 10 deadline to get a deal done, their prospects appear in tatters.

United bosses are still trying to negotiate the deal through an intermediary, but the noises coming out of the club suggest that Sancho is going nowhere.

Dortmund legend Sebastian Kehl, who now works within the club, has reiterated his delight that their No7 will in fact be staying for the 2020-21 campaign.

He told Kicker: "It was important to clarify this subject.

"Of course, we are aware of Jadon's appeal [in the market] but we also know how important he is for our team.

"He is a player who can make the difference in every game. He had an outstanding past year with 17 goals and 17 assists [in the Bundesliga].

"He gives the team something extra and we are very happy that he is staying, as his team-mates have already stated in recent days."

This comes hot on the heels of Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc bullishly claiming that Sancho will not be sold this summer.

The decision is final. I think that answers all of the questions.

He said: "He'll play for us next season.

"The decision is final. I think that answers all of the questions.

"Last summer we adjusted the salary to the performance development of Jadon.

"In this context, we have extended the contract until 2023."

And after featuring in Dortmund's first pre-season friendly, a 6-0 rout over SCR Altach, Sancho himself revealed that he is happy at the club.

He said: "I love playing with this lot. 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. I was once in their shoes, playing with the seniors. I am happy for them.

"I joined when I was 17. Some of the lads are the same age. I've been there and done that.

"I can guide them in what’s good and what isn’t. I can hopefully motivate them as well."
