Jadon Sancho will end up leaving Borussia Dortmund for a different experience, but he will not do so in this transfer window according to Dortmund Director Sebastian Kehl.
Sancho has been heavily linked with Manchester United but the Premier League club have reportedly not met the €120million (£108m) asking price for the England forward
Dortmund have been quite vocal, insisting that Sancho would go nowhere, and Kehl has now reiterated the club’s stance on the Sancho saga.

In aam interview with Ruhr Nachrichten, Kehl said: “Jadon has trained well and professionally. He is happy to play football.
“Yes, someday he might leave for a new challenge but right now he is happy at Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Dortmund is happy to have him.
“He is here – and he will stay here. It was an important statement from the club because we have a certain responsibility. Without Jadon, this team is worse.”
Sancho’s 17 league goals last season, trailed only Robert Lewandowski (34) and Timo Werner (28). Thomas Muller (21) was the lone player to have more assists than Sancho’s 16 in the Bundesliga as well.
Dortmund began the 2020-21 Bundesliga season with a 3-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach and Sancho provided an assist in his 78 minutes on the pitch.
