Squad manager Sebastian Kehl issues another hands off Sancho warning to Manchester United as rumours rumble on
Manchester United have been given a further hands-off warning from Borussia Dortmund regarding Jadon Sancho, by the squad manager Sebastian Kehl.
There is no doubt that Sancho is the number one transfer target for Manchester United and has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for month, with all the speculation frustrating the fans.
Icfootballnews has learned that the Red Devils are still chasing the winger’s signature despite Michael Zorc’s comments, however, they are growing frustrated by the drawn-out nature of ongoing negotiations, which are being mediated by an independent agent.
Now Ex-Dortmund midfielder Kehl, who currently serves as the head of the club’s licensed player division, believes Sancho’s position at Westfalenstadion has now been clarified conclusively.
“It was important to clarify this subject [regarding Sancho’s future],” Kehl told German publication Kicker. “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.”
Look, Manchester United need to give up this chase and work on adding a new defender and striker to the attack because Sancho is not the only player that needs to be signed this summer.
If he stays at Dortmund, good for him, he is progressing nicely and if United want him next summer, then get the man, they should have more funds to spend then.
