Manchester United told Sancho ‘is now impressing’ without pressure of transfer speculation
Jadon Sancho is impressing without the pressure of Manchester United transfer talk, according to Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.
It is no secret that Sancho was the number one transfer target for Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during the summer transfer window, but the Red Devils could simply not get a transfer deal done.
Sancho endured a slow start to the 2020-21 campaign after being heavily linked with a move to the Premier League giants, but has started to get back to his best since the turn of the year.
The England international netted his 10th goal of the season in a 4-0 win at Schalke on Saturday, and also set up one of Erling Haaland’s efforts, with Watzke glad to see him showing his “incredible quality” again after a testing period.
Watzke told Sport 1: “Jadon is doing really well at the moment, he’s back. But that was only a matter of time. All the transfer talk in the summer has already been forgotten.
“Edin [Terzic] talked to him a lot. Jadon has shown again in the last few weeks what incredible quality he is. We are very happy that he is playing for us.”
Sancho still has two years left to run on his current contract at Dortmund, and although speculation over his future has died down in recent months, rumours of a potential switch to Old Trafford continue to swirl in the background.
But with the summer transfer window now just a few months away, can we expect the Red Devils to finally get a transfer deal done?
