#Jadon #Sancho “has lost control” over transfer speculation linking him to a move to #Manchester #United this summer, admits #Hans-Joachim #Watzke, #Borussia #Dortmund CEO, but believes he is returning to his best.

#England international #Sancho, #United’s main transfer target this summer, scored his first #Bundesliga goal of the season on #Sunday as #Dortmund returned from the winter break with a 2-0 victory over #Wolfsburg.

#He was the first 20-year-old in his 12th league appearance this season – a marked decline from the last term when he was 17 – and #Dortmund’s #Watzke believes his change in form was due to the intense media speculation surrounding his future.

#Sancho came close to moving to #Old #Trafford, but talks halted due to disagreements over personal terms and agent fees, and since the start of the 2020/21 campaign he has five goals and nine assists in 19 matches in all competitions.

“#Jadon had probably already prepared a little subconsciously for a change,” #Watzke told the #German magazine. #Kicker.

“I think there was at least so much thought that he lost his fluency. #But I have the impression that he has been trying hard for weeks. #Things will pick up very quickly. #He is still one of the greatest talents there is. “”

#Sancho’s teammate #Erling #Haaland, who has the same agent as #United midfielder #Paul #Pogba, has enjoyed better form this season, scoring 17 goals in 15 games in all competitions.

#He too has been linked with moves in the past, but #Watzke once confirmed they won’t let him go anytime soon.

“I don’t think this will happen [Haaland leaving] “, he added. #Erling and his advisor #Mino #Raiola know what they have in us. I can only advise him to do it like #Robert #Lewandowski.

“At the time, he had the time to become an absolute world class player in #Dortmund.

“You can’t do this in a year. #Because it’s clear that if #Erling were to leave us at some point, he would only go to an even bigger club. #And there isn’t much to consider.

“If you go to a club like – to give just one example – #Real #Madrid, you have to be world class. ”

The winter transfer window runs from #January 2 to #February 1. #Keep up with the latest news on #Sky #Sports #News and with #Transfer #Center’s dedicated blog on the #Sky #Sports website and app.
