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.
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.”
