JADON SANCHO will STAY at Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to an official from the German club.
England ace Sancho has attracted interest from Premier League giants Manchester United and Liverpool ahead of a potential big-money move.
But Dortmund‘s head of club licensing, Sebastian Kehl, believes the Manchester City academy product will spend the next year in Germany.
Club legend Kehl, who won three titles and helped the club reach the Champions League final, told Sky Deutschland: “We expect Jadon to play with us next year.”
He was speaking ahead of Dortmund’s game away at Dusseldorf on Saturday, which Sancho’s side won 1-0 courtesy of a last-gasp Erling Haaland winner.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side were thought to be leading the way in the race to sign Sancho but are reportedly wary about splashing £115million in the current climate.
Reports in France suggested runaway league leaders Liverpool could be in pole position to snap up the winger.
However, Kehl definitively dismissed those rumours by saying they “do not correspond to the truth”.
Dortmund have always made clear their desire to keep Sancho and he could well remain at Signal Iduna Park as there is no indication he will force an exit when the transfer window opens.
The club are thought to be pleased with Sancho’s form – he hit a hat-trick against Paderborn two weeks ago in a game where he was also booked for celebrating with a “Justice for George Floyd” T-Shirt.
But are growing tired with his off-field antics after the 20-year-old branded the German authorities’ decision to fine him for being snapped having a haircut without wearing a mask, as an “absolute joke”.
He is also said to have irked club bosses with regular trips back to England on days off, but it remains to be seen whether he will head home for good in the summer.
