Wayne Rooney has urged Jadon Sancho to remain at Borussia Dortmund for now.
Sancho has been linked with a return to the Premier League after a hugely impressive season in the Bundesliga following his move from Manchester City.
The England winger was said to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s primary transfer target for Manchester United this summer but the Red Devils’ failure to secure Champions League football is said to have made Sancho wary of making the move to Old Trafford just yet.
Former United captain Rooney reckons Sancho should sit tight in Dortmund while he gets the regular football he needs at this stage in his development.
“Dortmund is a great club with great fans, they trust their young players and you can see that in Sancho and the progress he has made in the last 12 months,” Rooney told Bild.
“Now Jadon has to ask himself whether he would get the playing time he gets in Dortmund when he moves to England, or would he just sit on the bench?
“Playing time is so important for a young player like Jadon, so if he gets the most playing time in Dortmund, he should stay there.”
