• Sancho says it is hard to predict his future as of now
  • He is heavily linked with a move to Man Utd this summer
  • Dortmund have labeled Sancho at $125 million

Dortmund midfielder Jadon Sancho has said its "hard to say" where his future lies amid being heavily linked with a move to Manchester United this summer.

Sancho has scored 20 goals and assisted another 20 in what has turned out to be the best season of his professional career so far. Out of the 20 goals, 17 came in Bundesliga, where Dortmund finished second behind winners Bayern Munich.

In the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, several clubs have been facing a financial crisis but Dortmund have been adamant about Sancho’s transfer fee of $125 million. While the player has been on the target list of quite a few top European clubs, his asking price has been a hindrance. However, the Red Devils are understood to be still interested in bagging the player’s signatures at the upcoming transfer window.

While speaking to the World Soccer Magazine, Sancho was asked about his future, a possible move to Man Utd and interest from clubs such as Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City.

The 20-year-old replied, "I don’t know what to say to that. It’s hard to say. That’s the future. You never know what could happen, so we will wait and see."

In the same interview, the talented midfielder also revealed that quite a few famous players including former Liverpool winger John Barnes have inspired his family.

"My dad was a big fan of John Barnes. He had a couple of videos of him at home and I used to watch them a lot," Barnes shared. "I used to look at Ronaldinho on YouTube. That was a big thing for me. He used to try things that no-one else would try and that made me like him a lot. I didn’t have a team that I supported, though. I just idolized a lot of great players."

Since Sancho has another two years left on his current contract, Dortmund have a notable upper hand in the player’s transfer fee negotiations. The Germans signed the player for a mere $10 million from Manchester City in 2017. Now that Sancho has emerged as one of the future stars in soccer, Dortmund would want to cash in on the player.
