Chelsea transfer target Jadon Sancho says he is “happy” at Borussia Dortmund and is “not wasting thoughts” on a transfer away.
Sancho has become one of the most exciting English talents in recent history and already has five goals and eight assists to his name this season for the German side, after deciding to leave Manchester City in the summer transfer window in a bid to get some regular first team action under his belt.
And despite only recently making the move to Dortmund, there has been some speculation in the media which have claimed boss Maurizio Sarri is ready to delve into his transfer kitty and try to acquire the services of the young Englishman, as a possible long-term replacement for Eden Hazard, Willian or Pedro.
It is no secret that Hazard has dreams to play for Real Madrid and has pretty much confirmed he could leave at the end of the season, Willian is seemingly destined for a move to Barcelona, with latest reports suggesting they have already contacted the Brazilians agents to discuss a possible transfer deal, while Pedro is coming towards the back end of his playing career here at Stamford Bridge.
But despite all the interest and speculation surrounding his future already, the 18-year-old Sancho remains focused on Dortmund, telling the Sky Sports website: “I’m not wasting any thoughts on a change, I owe a lot to BVB and I have a lot in mind with this team.
“I’m happy here and did not sign for so long for nothing.”
Sancho is a talent, but is he ready for a move to Stamford Bridge?
With all the speculation surrounding a number of our players, it is not nice to see so many of the lads tipped to make the move away from the club and onto big sides like Barcelona or Real Madrid.
But even though Sancho will develop into a real superstar, we would like to see him stay put for another few seasons in a bid to get the game time and development he needs to come here and make any sort of impact on the side.
Right now he is not ready to be a Chelsea player, right now the best thing for him to do is stay put at Dortmund.
