The winger’s future was one of the hottest subjects of debate last summer as he has heavily linked with a return to his native England.

Jadon Sancho has been able to rediscover his best form without transfer talks serving as a source of distraction for him, suggests Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.

Sancho and Manchester United almost always appeared together in the same sentence during the previous summer transfer window.

The England international was said to be keen on making his return to the Premier League while the Red Devils had also reportedly identified him as a priority target.

If not for Dortmund’s resolution against budging on their £100 million (€115m) valuation of their prized asset, the transfer would have most probably gone through.

It appeared that the drawn-out transfer saga winger had a negative impact on the winger as he endured a slow start to 2020-21.

Sancho, however, has managed to get back to his best since the turn of the year, having scored six goals and registered as many assists in eleven appearances in 2021.

“Jadon is doing really well at the moment, he’s back. But that was only a matter of time. All the transfer talk in the summer has already been forgotten,” Watzke told Sport 1.

“Edin [Terzic] talked to him a lot. Jadon has shown again in the last few weeks what incredible quality he is. We are very happy that he is playing for us.”
