Wait and see – Sancho staying cryptic on future amid Man Utd links

Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho is not giving anything away about his future plans as talk of a possible move to Manchester United intensify. Recent reports suggest United are ready to negotiate a deal with the Bundesliga club, who are said to be holding out for a fee of close to 110 million euros for the England star.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, long reported to be an admirer of Sancho, is said to be eager to add the 20-year-old to an impressive attack already boasting Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial.

Sancho, who has also been linked with Liverpool, appears unwilling to be drawn into the speculation about his plans. Speaking to World Soccer Magazine this week, he said: "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."

Sancho left Manchester City to join Dortmund in 2017, where he has developed into one of the world's best young attacking players. The winger, who was part of Watford's academy before moving to City, was previously said to have been a keen Chelsea fan as a child. However, he now says he did not support any one team in particular but was instead more interested in watching certain stars of the game.

John Barnes and Ronaldinho, Jadon Sancho's childhood heroes

"My dad was a big fan of John Barnes," Sancho said. "He had a couple of videos of him at home and I used to watch them a lot. "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 which I supported though. I just idolised a lot of great players."
