Dortmund star Jadon Sancho has admitted that it is a ‘nice feeling’ to be discussed as a potential £100m player, amid transfer links to Manchester United.
Sancho contributed to a total of 33 goals in the Bundesliga last season, scoring 17 times and registering 16 assists. That scintillating form led to links to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, who are looking to further bolster their attacking options ahead of the 2020/21 season.
Dortmund are holding firm on Sancho, though, insisting the 20-year-old England international won’t be sold this summer after United missed an August deadline to make their move. However, with the transfer window open until mid-October, the rumours have continued regardless.

Speaking to SoccerBible, Sancho hinted at his pride at the paper talk which has put his transfer value at over £100m.
He said: “I guess it’s a nice feeling to be worth so much, but again, I don’t really look at it that much. For me it’s about doing well for my team and doing well for myself as well.”
Elsewhere in the interview, he discussed the benefit of patience in his career so far.
He added: “I feel like everything is a process. So you’ve got to be patient in what you do. Obviously I took a massive risk coming to Germany. I had a lot of people doubting me saying why are you leaving City, but I just felt like it was the right time for me.
“It’s about patience. You can’t rush things. Everything happens for a reason. If it was meant to be this year that I broke through, then I’d be more than happy. I’m still young at the end of the day.”

As for the transfer links themselves, the former Manchester City starlet insisted he is solely focussed on his football and not the stories in the media.
He said: “The media’s the media. They’re always going to try and create a story, but this is how you manage it.
“For me, I just focus on my football. I just want to do what’s best for my team and win titles at the end of the day.”
