Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has admitted he would ‘respect’ whatever Jadon Sancho wants come this summer, MySportDab reports.
However, Watzke also warned clubs interested in the England international this summer would have to pay alot of cash because the Bundesliga club are not in any hurry to sell him.
Manchester United are very interested in of signing Sancho, with Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and chief Ed Woodward both in agreement over the young winger.
Sancho has impressed once again this season, scoring 14 goals and providing 15 assists from 23 Bundesliga games.
MySportDab understands United lead in the race to sign Jadon Sancho right now despite interest from the likes of PSG, Liverpool, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid.
But Dortmund chief Watzke, has admitted he’ll respect the player’s wishes if he decides to quit the club.
“Even before the current outbreak, we have said again and again that we prefer to keep Sancho with us,” Watzke told German Newspaper Bild.
“But we just have to respect what the player decides and wants.”
However Watzke did warn that Sancho won’t be sold cheap.
“I’m stating clearly that even the rich clubs shouldn’t think that they can come here to bargain,” Watzke added.
“We will never sell anyone for less than their worth.”
A price tag of around £120million is want Borussia Dortmund are likely to demand and if any club decides to pay that fee, Sancho would become one of the most-expensive players in world football.
Manchester United’s record signing is still Paul Pogba, who cost the club £89m from Juventus in 2016.
After Pogba is Harry Maguire, who joined the Red Devils for £80m from Leicester City during the last transfer window.
Manchester United could hand Jadon Sancho the No 7 shirt if he joins the club, with Alexis Sanchez surely will be sold.
