Jadon Sancho insists he is focused on England’s Euro 2020 preparations amid speculation of a big-money transfer to Manchester United.

Last summer was dominated by discussion about Sancho swapping the Bundesliga for the Premier League, but the Old Trafford outfit failed to strike a deal with Borussia Dortmund for the 21-year-old.

United are reportedly in talks with Dortmund over a deal for the highly-rated winger, who is preparing for England’s Euros opener against Croatia on Sunday.

But while the footballing world is abuzz with talk about a potential big-money switch, Sancho is not getting caught up in the hullaballoo.

“I don’t really look at it,” he said. “When I’m during the season, I always focus on myself and the team because that’s the most important thing that we can do.

“You know, every time I’m on a pitch I’m always giving my all and obviously to create with what I do on a pitch and that’s with goals and assists.

“That’s why I really try to do and always work hard for the team.”

Pushed on whether the background talk is an unwanted distraction, Sancho told talkSPORT: “No, I’m cool about it.

“You know, there’s always going to be speculation, especially when you do well.

“It’s just how you handle that on the pitch and just keep doing what you’re doing.

“If you keep on doing that then I’m sure that won’t be a problem because the main thing is my football and that’s what I’m focused on at the moment.”

Potential future United team-mates Marcus Rashford, Dean Henderson, Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire are all in the England squad alongside Sancho as talk rumbles on, but the winger has been giving little away.

“Of course all the boys have a lot of questions, you know,” the 21-year-old said.


“I feel like that’s with a lot of players because we’re all such great young talents and, you know, when you do well - again, like I said - speculation is always going to come around.

“Again, I just tell the boys, ‘look, I’m just focused on football at the moment’ and we just focus on the Euros, step by step.”
