'Everything has been said' - Dortmund stand firm on Sancho as Manchester United saga drags on02-Oct-2020, 08:48 pm
Dortmund imposed a deadline of August 10 for any deal to be completed, by which time United did not meet their €120 million (£108m/$142m) asking price.
“Jadon Sancho will play with us next season,” he said. “The decision is final. I think that answers all the questions.”
Now, nearly two months on, United are still believed to hold some hope of a late change in fortunes,but Zorc does not appear to entertain any notion of a surprise sale.
"Everything that can be said on this subject has already been said,” he told Ruhr Nachrichten. “Nothing will change that."
Sancho missed Dortmund’s last game, a 3-2 DFL-Supercup defeat to Bayern Munich, through illness. Some fans took his absence as a sign that a move was on, but Zorc reiterated he was simply unavailable with a cold. Sancho and Roman Burki, who also missed out, both tested negative for Covid-19.
He said: "At the moment I don't know when they will return, especially with Roman. Jadon had a slight cold. We'll see today."
If Dortmund stick to their word and Sancho spends another season in black and yellow, it cannot be said to come as a surprise given their repeated public statements as such.
Team-mates Erling Haaland and Marco Reus have said how pleased they were to learn he would be staying, while CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said in August that there was ‘no room for interpretation’ about their deadline for a deal.
