Given the fact that the clubs are negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, Michael Zorc believes that Jadon Sancho will not switch to other clubs.

Borussia Dortmund sporting director, Michael Zorc, believes that no club will is going to pay for Jadon Sancho this year.

England star Sancho has been linked with Manchester United and Chelsea following another exceptional season in the Bundesliga.

After his great performances in the Bundesliga, Sancho has been a transfer target for Premier league giants, Manchester United and Chelsea, however, his transfer fee is €100million which Michael Zorc believes no club is going to pay for the player amid the financial crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward stated last week that suggestions of nine-figure sums being paid for players in 2020 were ignoring "the realities that face the sport", with the Red Devils having also been linked with a bid for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Zorc, too, appears to expect Sancho to be beyond the reach of even the wealthiest clubs, revealing Dortmund remain "totally relaxed" over the situation.

"There is no new situation [on Sancho]," he told Sport1. "Currently, no club will risk anything in making a big-money move - not even in England.

"We have a long-term contract with Jadon Sancho and that is why we are totally relaxed."

Sancho managed 14 goals and 15 assists in his first 23 Bundesliga appearances of 2019-20.

His contract is not due to expire until 2022.
