Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has admitted no club has made official contacts over their star forward Jadon Sancho
After a remarkable breakthrough season at the Signal Iduna Park, Sancho has continued making headlines this campaign, racking up 12 goals and 13 assists in 18 Bundesliga appearances so far.
While enjoying a rise to the stardom at Dortmund, the 19-year-old forward has become the youngster player ever to bag 15 goals in the German top division.
His eye-catching performances have earned him the title of ‘Europe’s most highly-sought-after prospect,’ with numerous European heavyweights looking to lure him away from Dortmund.
A return to his native England seems to be one plausible option, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool, all showing ambition to take Sancho back to his homeland.

However, Zorc insists no side has approached Dortmund for their most valuable asset yet, although casting doubt on his long-term future at the club.
“The fact is no other club has contacted us so far about Jadon,” Dortmund chief said, as reported by the TalkSPORT.
“[I can’t] reliably answer today [if Sancho will stay at Dortmund beyond the summer].
“What I can say for sure is that he feels very comfortable with us. Otherwise, he could not produce such [high-level] performances week after week.
“He is a phenomenon and is now producing top performances. And he rarely takes a break on the pitch, helping the team with their defensive work.
“He is hard-working and gets the greatest of respect from me.”
In addition to an always-present interest from the Premier League powerhouses, Barcelona and Real Madrid have also studied the possibility of capturing Sancho’s services.
La Liga giants are both keen on increasing their respective firepowers, especially the Catalans, who have to start preparing for life after Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
