Borussia Dortmund captain Reus dismisses Man Utd talk for Sancho

Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus says the players expect Jadon Sancho to stay.

Sancho has been Manchester United's no.1 target this summer but the Premier League club have so far failed to match Dortmund's valuation.

The winger has started both of Dortmund's Bundesliga games so far this season and Reus says his teammates are delighted to still have him.

"For us players that was great news," Reus told Sky Deutschland. “We all were happy that he will be with us for the season.

"Also because he delivers scorer points for the team. Goals, assists - in the end that translates to a lot of points.

"He is an essential player for us. If he will be as great of a player as Ronaldo and time will tell. He needs a little bit of time, many experiences.

"There will surely be phases in his career where things will not go as smoothly as now, and we will see how he is going to deal with something like that. But I believe that he has the confidence and of course the quality to do that."
