Jadon Sancho has opened up on his transfer links to Manchester United.
The Borussia Dortmund winger was singled out as their biggest summer target after a mixed season of results under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but his current side are not willing to be pressured into a sale.
The 20-year-old scored 17 goals and laid on 17 assists in just 32 Bundesliga appearances during his most recent campaign, and Dortmund were always likely to hold out for in excess of £100m.
The Red Devils had been keen to move away from having to pay premium sums for incoming deals, as was the case in their move for Harry Maguire, but on this occasion it is unlikely to pay off.
Sancho has now opened up on his feelings at the launch event for his personalised Nike collection, mentioning why he chooses not to pay much attention to the media.
“I try not to look at the media because I think once you start looking at all that it would be easy to get carried away with it,” Sancho told Soccerbible.
“It can affect players. For me it’s about not looking at those things and just focusing on trying to do the best I can on the pitch. Especially in training.”
The former Manchester City youngster went on to talk about his continued rise, and how he wants to keep getting better.
He added: “For me it’s about improving every single day. It’s important for me to keep a smile on my face and keep happy.
“I don’t really look at all the noise and all that stuff. I’d rather keep my head down, keep focus and improve every day.”
Dortmund director Sebastian Kehl mentioned this week that he thinks Sancho will stay at the club for at least one more season, forcing United to consider other targets.
He said: "Jadon is happy to stay. He has a contract until 2023.
