Jadon Sancho is set to turn down the chance to join Man Utd in a £100m deal, while a Chelsea star is being linked with a move to the Bundesliga, according to Thursday’s papers.
DORTMUND STAR TO TURN DOWN MAN UTD MOVE
Jadon Sancho is reportedly set to turn down a chance to join Manchester United and opt to remain in Germany instead.
United and PSG have been tracking the Borussia Dortmund attacker, with a view to making a big-money summer bid, but look set for disappointment.
The 18-year-old, who would likely cost a fee in the region of £100million, wants to remain loyal to Dortmund and complete his three-year plan to remain in the Bundesliga, according to The Sun.
Sancho, who will be included in Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions squad next Wednesday for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro, also believes that playing regularly in Germany will not harm his international chances.
The Sun revealed earlier this week that Sancho’s former club Manchester City would pocket a £15m windfall if he becomes the latest £100m footballer.
The reigning Premier League champions will also be able to match any bid which meets Dortmund’s asking price for the player.
