Last summer was dominated by discussion about the talented 21-year-old swapping the Bundesliga for the Premier League, but the Old Trafford outfit failed to strike a deal with the German side.

The PA news agency understands Man United are currently in talks with Dortmund over a deal for the highly-rated winger, who is preparing for England’s Euros opener against Croatia on Sunday.

Why does Sancho switch to Man Utd now feel underwhelming?

'I believe he will be a Manchester United player' - Goldbridge drops huge MUFC transfer claim

  'I believe he will be a Manchester United player' - Goldbridge drops huge MUFC transfer claim The United Stand presenter Mark Goldbridge has provided Manchester United fans with a positive update regarding the rumoured reports surrounding Jadon Sancho signing for The Red Devils this summer. Sancho, valued at £90 million according to Transfermarkt, has been long been linked with a switch to Old Trafford, in a rumour that refused to go […]Sancho, valued at £90 million according to Transfermarkt, has been long been linked with a switch to Old Trafford, in a rumour that refused to go away last summer – but ultimately failed to come to fruition.

But while the footballing world is abuzz with talk about a potential big-money switch, Sancho is not getting caught up in the hullaballoo.

“I don’t really look at it,” he said. “When I’m during the season, I always focus on myself and the team because that’s the most important thing that we can do.

“You know, every time I’m on a pitch I’m always giving my all and obviously to create with what I do on a pitch and that’s with goals and assists.

“That’s why I really try to do and always work hard for the team.”

Pushed on whether the background talk is an unwanted distraction, Sancho told talkSPORT: “No, I’m cool about it.

“You know, there’s always going to be speculation, especially when you do well.

“It’s just how you handle that on the pitch and just keep doing what you’re doing.

“If you keep on doing that then I’m sure that won’t be a problem because the main thing is my football and that’s what I’m focused on at the moment.”

United have reportedly seen a 78 million euros (£67million) bid turned down by Dortmund, who are holding out for a 90m euros (£77.3) deal rising to 95m euros (£81.6m) with a shorter repayment period.

Potential future club team-mates Marcus Rashford, Dean Henderson, Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire are all in the England squad alongside Sancho as talk rumbles on, but the winger has been giving little away.

“Of course all the boys have a lot of questions, you know,” the 21-year-old said.

“I feel like that’s with a lot of players because we’re all such great young talents and, you know, when you do well – again, like I said – speculation is always going to come around.

“Again, I just tell the boys, ‘look, I’m just focused on football at the moment’ and we just focus on the Euros, step by step.”

Sancho cannot wait to play in his first major tournament for England and feels in fine form after recovering from the thigh injury that kept him out of March’s internationals.

“When I got injured obviously I was disappointed because I was in such great form,” the Dortmund forward said.

“But I knew that I had to come back even stronger and obviously that’s what I done, my recovery as well was good.

“I was just focusing on myself and just being in the gym, working on a few things that I needed to work on. I came back even stronger, you know.

“I think we were around sixth or seventh in the league and obviously we needed to make Champions League qualification, so we had targets and especially to win the Pokal (German Cup).

“I’m happy that I came back and, you know, lifted the team with some motivation and with some goals and assists.”

The winger won the German Cup alongside compatriot Jude Bellingham, whose ascent shows no signs of abating with the 17-year-old midfielder joining Sancho in England’s Euros squad.

“I would say that he’s more composed on the ball, as he was on before when I first met him,” he added.

“He’s a lot more direct, he knows when to find a pass and he always makes the right decisions – when to pass back or like drive forward with the ball or make a tackle. I’ll give that to him.

“I would like to think (I’m a bit of a mentor to him) obviously because we’re both English and we came over to Germany and probably I was the only guy that he probably knew in the England squad at the time.

“I’d like to say he’s my little brother. Me and him have a good relationship and he’s just a nice lad to be around.

“It’s always nice to have someone from England over in Germany to talk to.”
