Jadon Sancho insists he remains completely focused on improving at Borussia Dortmund and is ignoring the ‘noise’ around a potential £100million move to Manchester United.

Sancho, who has scored 34 goals in 99 matches for Dortmund, has emerged as Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top target this summer.

While Dortmund have insisted Sancho will not be sold, Manchester United still believe a deal could be agreed as they consider submitting a £100m bid for the England international.

Sancho is said to be keen on a return to the Premier League – he spent almost a decade at Watford’s academy and then two years at Manchester City – but insists he is ignoring the speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.

Asked how he deals with the intense transfer links, Sancho told SoccerBible: ‘I try not to look at the media because I think once you start looking at all that it would be easy to get carried away with it.

‘It can affect players. For me it’s about not looking at those things and just focusing on trying to do the best I can on the pitch. Especially in training.

‘For me it’s about improving every single day. It’s important for me to keep a smile on my face and keep happy.

‘I don’t really look at all the noise and all that stuff. I’d rather keep my head down, keep focus and improve every day.’

Sancho has developed into one of the most highly-rated players in world football since joining Dortmund in 2017.

Reflecting on his rise, Sancho added: ‘I’d say it hits me most when I see family and see my mum and people like that.

‘They’re so happy for me and it’s nice to see my family being so proud of me. I do everything for them and I just want to keep making them proud.

‘I do look at how far we’ve come and the things I’m doing and have those moments when it hits me and it’s like, “wow”.

‘Coming from nothing to being on a boat like I was, with everyone like my family and close friends, it’s a nice feeling and a nice moment to share because it’s not an everyday thing.

‘My family members couldn’t afford things like that and it’s nice to give to them experiences like that to show them how much I love them and I appreciate them.’
