Borussia Dortmund star Haaland gives verdict on Man Utd interest in Sancho

Erling Braut Haaland has said he would love Jadon Sancho to stay at Borussia Dortmund this season.

The 20-year-old continues to be linked with Manchester United, although the Premier League club are running out of time to complete a deal.

Dortmund are holding out for an £108m transfer which United are unwilling to pay.

For his part, Haaland hopes his attacking partner stays at Signal Iduna Park.

"I think he has been very good throughout the whole pre-season," the Norwegian told viaplay.

"He will be an important player for us this season.

"That's not something that I am involved in [transfer rumours]

"Those in charge are responsible for that. I am not going to comment too much on that. But if he stays, I'll be very happy, because he is both a good friend of mine and a hell of a player."
