Sancho unsure about his future yet says he's 'very happy' at Dortmund

Sat 08 May 2021 | 17:28

The England international, 21 years old, is the focus of intense debate over a potential transfer to Old Trafford.

Jadon Sancho, a Manchester United target, says he doesn't know what the future holds for him but insists he's content at Borussia Dortmund. 

Sancho has long been a prominent transfer target for the Red Devils, but Dortmund has been similarly obstinate in keeping one of their best young players. 

However, owing to the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, the England striker could be available for around £78 million ($108 million). It remains to be seen if United will equal that valuation.

"I don't know about my future," the 21-year-old told 

ESPN

 on Saturday after netting twice in his side's 3-2 defeat of RB Leipzig. 

"I am very happy here in Dortmund at the moment. I love the club, the fans and the team.

"They gave me my first professional start. The fans motivate and push me to the limit."

Sancho's brace was also appreciated at the Allianz Arena, where Bayern Munich had already won the Bundesliga title due to Leipzig's defeat. 

BVB, on the other hand, would not begrudge them their joy, as Saturday's win may be vital to their chances of qualifying for the

Champions League

next season. 

With two games left, the club has moved up to the fourth position in the

Bundesliga

rankings, passing Eintracht Frankfurt for the final qualification slot.

Frankfurt could reclaim fourth place with a victory over Mainz on Sunday, setting the scene for a tense struggle to qualify for Europe's top competition. 

Champions League will be a massive help for the club in their fight to keep players like Sancho and Erling Haaland, who have been connected with some of Europe's biggest clubs due to their feats in Germany.
