Jadon Sancho stunned by 'mad' £100m transfer reports

Borussia Dortmund talent Jadon Sancho has told the London Evening Standard that he doesn't know how to react to rumours of a £100million valuation and interest from the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

However, despite most of his domestic action coming from the bench, Sancho has already starred in the Champions League, contributed a goal and - nearly more impressively - six assists, the joint most in Europe's top five leagues.

"Especially for players like Jadon Sancho, who has been invited to the England senior squad for the first time".

"Just try and continue to be the best I can be", he said. I'm so young and still have a lot to learn.

As a outcome of his brilliant form, the 18-year-old received a call-up to Gareth Southgate's latest England squad and has been linked with Premier League giants such as Manchester United and Liverpool, while Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur und Chelsea are also said to be monitoring the player's situation in Germany. Because he had been part of their academy, The Hornets received 10% of the fee Dortmund paid to sign him from City last summer. "Obviously, I have got to say thank you to the (Dortmund) manager (Lucien Favre) for playing me, trusting and believing in me".

"I'm just grateful that he's (coach Gareth Southgate) seeing my progress in the Bundesliga, and I'm just very thankful". In response, Sancho failed to turn up for training, eventually sealing his move to the Bundesliga weeks later.

His promising displays in Germany saw him become the first player born this millennium to be called up by the senior team. I don't know. It's the future.

"That won't faze me at all", he said. "I don't know what to say to that", he said, smiling. I can't just go down the road and see my friends, but it's what I want to do long-term: to be a professional footballer you have to do what you have to do to make myself and my family happy. "We'll wait and see".
