In the midst of speculation over his future at Manchester City, Jadon Sancho concentrates on Euro 2020.
While Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund continue to discuss a possible deal, Jadon Sancho is concentrating on England’s Euro 2020 preparations and dismissing concerns about his future.
The brilliant 21-year-old was linked with a move from the Bundesliga to the Premier League last summer, but United were unable to reach an agreement with the German club.
United are in negotiations with Dortmund, according to the PA news agency, about a move for the highly-rated winger, who is preparing for England’s Euros opener against Croatia on Sunday.
Sancho, on the other hand, isn’t getting caught up in the hullabaloo about a possible big-money swap, despite the fact that the footballing world is abuzz with speculation about it.
He admitted, “I don’t really look at it.” “I always focus on myself and the squad during the season because it is the most essential thing we can accomplish.
“You know, I always give it my all on the pitch and obviously to produce with what I do on the pitch, which is goals and assists.
“That is why I make every effort to perform my best for the team.”
When asked if the background noise is an unwelcome distraction, Sancho replied, “No, I’m ok with it.”
The most important thing is my football, and that’s what I’m concentrating on right now.
“It’s inevitable that there would be speculation, especially when you do well.
“It’s just how you deal with it on the field and keep doing what you’re doing,” he says.
“If you keep doing that, I’m confident it won’t be a problem because the most important thing is my football, and that’s what I’m concentrating on right now.”
Dortmund has reportedly rejected United’s 78 million euro (£67 million) bid, preferring a 90 million euro (£77.3) agreement rising to 95 million euro (£81.6 million) with a shorter repayment period.
As the debate continues, Sancho’s future club teammates Marcus Rashford, Dean Henderson, Luke Shaw, and Harry Maguire are all in the England squad, but the winger has been giving. (This is a brief piece.)
