He managed 12 appearances in his first season at Dortmund, but has since grown into a key player having played 1718 minutes of football during the current campaign.

Manchester United 'have made Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho one of their main transfer targets for the summer but have turned down Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho'.

However, the Independent now reports that United will "press ahead" with an £80million move for England worldwide Sancho as the winger "fits the profile" of player they are looking for.

"Jadon will play at Dortmund next season and we are definitely planning with him". But I'm saying that even the biggest clubs in the world can hardly afford his transfer at the moment.

United are said to be plotting an £80m move for Sancho at the end of the season, whilst the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City are also reportedly interested in the Dortmund starlet, who has racked up nine goals and 15 assists in all competitions this season.

Sancho has been in Germany since 2017, as he opted to leave Manchester City for Dortmund in search of more first-team opportunities, which the winger has certainly found, with his form for BVB also resulting in him becoming an England global after making his debut in October 2018.

However, Zorc says the former Manchester City youngster will not be going anywhere.

However, while Zorc is insistent Sancho will not be leaving, he also dropped a huge hint that Dortmund will be open to a deal at some point.

"His development this season has been really good".
