Rio Ferdinand Calls Borussia Dortmund Star ‘Best Young Player in World’

Rio Ferdinand Calls Borussia Dortmund Star ‘Best Young Player in World’”

The Bundesliga club set a deadline of 10 August to agree any deal for Sancho and want about £100m for the player.

Bellingham joined Dortmund from Birmingham last month, becoming the most expensive teenager in Europe when he completed a €25 million (£23m/$29m) move.

As stated by Sportsmail on Monday, Sancho is not the only frustrated party in negotiations, with United increasingly irritated with the England international's representatives as well as the Bundesliga side's refusal to deal with them directly.

Having a shared experience has been a big factor in the relationship between the pair, with Bellingham hailing his team-mate in a Q&A on Dortmund's Twitter account on Tuesday.

Emre Can on Jadon Sancho: "I'm personally very happy that Jadon is staying".

The report also adds Sancho's representatives have also snubbed United's contract bid, with the Dortmund winger wanting a figure closer to £250,000 as opposed to the £220,000 now being offered to him at Old Trafford.

'We plan with Jadon Sancho, ' he said. "I think that answers all the questions".

However, later in the day Goal reported that the matter was far from settled and United are refusing to give up in their pursuit of Sancho.

Goal has learned that Dortmund are holding out for a final fee of €120 million (£108m/$142m) for a prized asset, who recorded 20 goals and 20 assists for the club in 2019-20.

Earlier this week, Dortmund's sporting director Michel Zorc claimed the club are planning the 2020/21 season with Sancho in a decision described as "final".

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, Ferdinand said Sancho, who only turned 20 in March, is the "best" young player on the planet "bar none". But I also expect a lot from him in the next season.

The 17-year-old also revealed that in addition to Sancho, he has also bonded with another new signing in Thomas Meunier. "Last year and the first year when I came he's been one of the most important players offensively for our team".
