Man Utd receive update on Jadon Sancho pursuit… it's not all bad news for Solskjaer

That’s the fierce statement issued by Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc.

Sancho has emerged as one of Europe’s hottest prospects since snubbing a deal at Manchester City in favour of a Bundesliga move in 2017.

The flying winger has forced his way into the first team at the Bundesliga title-chasers and his impressive performances saw him handed his England debut in October.

Sancho has deservedly been attracting the attention of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Reports have suggested United are keen to swoop this summer and are believed to be preparing a £100m bid.

Solskjaer is expected to be given the gig permanently and the Norwegian sees Sancho as the final piece in an exciting attacking trio alongside Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

But despite the speculation, Zorc has poured cold water on a deal happening this summer.

The transfer revelation comes following the news that:

“Jadon will play for Borussia Dortmund next season.”

“Jadon will play for Borussia Dortmund next season,” Zorc told BILD.

“We are definitely planning with him.

“I’m also aware that the efforts – especially of the English clubs – to sign him will be stronger and stronger if he continues to play like that.”

However, while Zorc is insistent Sancho will not be leaving, he also dropped a huge hint that Dortmund will be open to a deal at some point.

“He will certainly not play in Dortmund until the end of his career,” he added.

“That is also part of the truth.”

United are currently fifth in the Premier League table, two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal.

Solskjaer’s side return to action on Saturday as they visit Wolves in the FA Cup quarter-final.
