Borussia Dortmund Director Insists Club Are 'Relaxed' About Jadon Sancho's Future

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has insisted the club are relaxed about the future of Jadon Sancho, who has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United this summer.

The Red Devils have been tipped to land Sancho in a deal worth in excess of £100m, although United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward recently insisted that the coronavirus outbreak could have a significant impact on every club's transfer strategy.

Speaking to Sport1, Zorc admitted that predicting what will happen in the summer transfer window is nearly impossible, but Dortmund are not worried about the future as Sancho still has a contract at the club for the foreseeable future.

"There is nothing new," Zorc admitted (again). "It is currently the case for all clubs that things are going a little slow - even in England! I cannot and do not want to go out on a limb with forecasts because the situation is currently changing every day. We will see what happens.

"We have a long-term contract with Jadon Sancho. Nothing will change about that now. We are totally relaxed about it.

"I understand the questions, but these whole topics are currently not the top priority. The dominant questions that concern us at the moment should be: How will the league go on? When do we play again? It is of paramount importance for all of us to be able to end the season."

90min told you back in September 2019 that United were confident of striking a deal to sign Sancho this summer, and that stance was recently echoed in a separate report which claimed that United had held a series of 'secret meetings' with Sancho to iron out the specifics of a transfer.

However, with income taking an indefinite hit while football is suspended, United may struggle to spend over £100m on one player - especially considering they hope to land Aston Villa's Jack Grealish and Birmingham City's Jude Bellingham as well.

Chelsea are also understood to be in pursuit of Sancho, although it is United who were leading the race for his signature before the coronavirus outbreak put a stop to football.
