Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke insists that Jadon Sancho's wishes this summer will be 'respected'.

Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has insisted that the German club will not stand in Jadon Sancho's way if the England international wants to leave this summer.

Sancho is believed to be Manchester United's leading transfer target ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Watzke has said that BVB will "respect" the wishes of the 20-year-old but has also warned interested clubs that the Bundesliga outfit will not be forced into a cut-price sale.

"You always have to respect what the player wants," Watzke told Bild. "We said before coronavirus that our favourite idea is that Jadon will stay with us.

"I can say that even the very rich clubs, despite the existing crisis, don't believe they can go on a bargain tour with us. We don't have to sell anyone below value."

Sancho, who has also been linked with Chelsea and Liverpool, has scored 17 times and registered 19 assists in 35 appearances for Dortmund during the current season.

The attacker's contract at Signal Iduna Park will run until the summer of 2022.
