Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has explained why it’s not the right time for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho to make a big money move to the Theatre of Dreams this summer.

In an interview with German news outlet SportBild, former Manchester United striker Rooney advised Jadon Sancho to wait for his dream move to Manchester United.

Wayne Rooney plays his club football for Major League Soccer (MLS) club D.C. United at the moment.

According to him, Jadon Sancho could struggle with playing time at Manchester United and it’s better for him to stay at Borussia Dortmund beyond this summer.

Sancho, 19, was heavily linked with Manchester United at the start of this summer in a reported €100m deal but Borussia Dortmund were reluctant to do a deal for him for at least one season.

The England international star has been a key player for Borussia Dortmund since joining the club two years ago.

He scored 12 goals for Borussia Dortmund as the 1997 Champions League champions came close to winning the German Bundesliga title last season.

German champions Bayern Munich piped Borussia Dortmund to the Bundesliga title on the last day of the season as the Signa Iduna Park giants missed out on major honour despite having a nine-point lead in December.

North London giants Arsenal are desperate for reinforcements defensively and Dan-Axel Zagadou has been mentioned as a possible transfer addition for the Gunners.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery wants to rectify the defensive issues that affected his team last season with the addition of new quality defenders.

Julian Weigl

German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund have reportedly set an asking price for one of their players.

Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl is not assured of a regular starting spot under club manager Lucien Favre and he could leave as the Germans try to raise funds to balance the books.

The likes of Thorgan Hazard, Nico Schulz, Mats Hummels, Paco Alcacer and Julian Brandt have all moved to Borussia Dortmund for a total of over €100m.

Thorgan Hazard is the junior brother of new Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard and he joined Dortmund from fellow German Bundesliga club Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Paco Alcacer spent last season on loan at Dortmund at Barcelona and the deal has been permanent.

German international left-back Nico Schulz joined from German Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim, while Julian Brandt also signed for Dortmund from fellow German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.

Centre back Mats Hummels returned to Borussia Dortmund from rivals Bayern Munich for a club-record €38m and he’s almost certain to relegate Julian Weigl back to the Dortmund bench.

German midfielder Weigl played at centre back for the majority of last season and the signing of Mats Hummels would almost certainly limit his playing time.

According to German newspaper SportBild, Weigl could leave the Dortmund this summer and his club has set a £27m transfer fee for the Arsenal target.

French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) are also interested in the player having worked with current PSG manager Thomas Tuchel while he was the Dortmund manager until 2017.
