Axel Witsel is delighted at the news Jadon Sancho is staying at the club for at least another season.

If the comments of Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc are to be believed Jadon’s Sacho’s move to United is dead in the water for at least one more year.

Zorc told the press yesterday that the deadline set by the club had passed and Sancho was staying at the Signal Iduna Stadium for the 2020/21 season.

As far as the club’s Belgian midfielder Axel Witsel is concerned, this is great news for the Dortmund.

Speaking to Sky Sports he acknowledges the importance of Sancho’s role in the side/

He said:

“He stays and we are all happy.” 

“Last year and the first year when I came he’s been one of the most important players offensively for our team.”

“This is really good news for us to keep him, at a minimum one more season.”

If Sancho really is staying, then who will Manchester United turn to instead?
