Borussia Dortmund will not be selling Jadon Sancho this summer, according to the club’s sporting director Michael Zorc.
Impressive performances under Lucien Favre’s management have attracted attention from a host of European clubs, including Manchester United.
According to reports , the Red Devils are prepared to spend the £80 million ($105m) that they had originally allocated to buy a new centre-back to instead bring Sancho to the club in the summer to help bolster their attack.
However, the German side are looking to keep the 18-year-old for as long as possible and see him as an integral part of their future beyond this season.
“I’m far from putting a price tag on Jadon, but I will say that, even for the biggest club in the world, his transfer would be difficult right now,” Zorc told Sport Bild .
“Jadon will play at Dortmund next season and we are definitely planning with him.”
