'We're happy Sancho's staying' - Man Utd get further hands off warning from Dortmund
Sancho has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford after another stellar season at Westfalenstadion.
An impressive 20 of those efforts came during the 2019-20campaign, and he also provided 20 assists to help Lucien Favre's men finish second in the Bundesliga and reach the Champions League knockout stages.
Sancho has reportedly reached an agreement to join United ahead of the new season, but Dortmund sportingdirector Michael Zorc appeared to rule out any potential sale earlier this week.
Goal has learned that the Red Devils are still chasing the winger's signature despite Zorc's comments, however, they are growing frustrated by the drawn-out nature of ongoing negotiations, which are being mediated by an independent agent.
It has been confirmed that Sancho has travelled with the rest of the BVB squad to Switzerland for their pre-season training camp, with the likes of Axel Wistel and Mats Hummels coming out to express their delight over a team-mate's continued presence in the squad.
Ex-Dortmund midfielder Kehl, who currently serves as the head of the club's licensed player division, believes Sancho's position at Westfalenstadion has now been clarified conclusively,and has talked up the impact he has had in the Bundesliga over the past 12 months.
"It was important to clarify this subject regarding Sancho's future," Kehl told German publication Kicker. "Of course, we are aware of Jadon's appeal in the market but we also know how important he is for our team.
"He is a player who can make the difference in every game.He had an outstanding past year with 17 goals and 17 assists in the Bundesliga.
"He gives the team something extra and we are very happy that he is staying, as his team-mates have already stated in recent days."
