Juan Mata praised Jadon Sancho, who’s linked with a summer move to Man Utd.
The Spanish midfielder was asked about the Borussia Dortmund youngster during an Instagram Live appearance for Common Goal coronavirus help fund.
“Should we sign Jadon Sancho?” Mata said.
“What do you want me to say? We all know he’s a great player. He’s having a fantastic season at Dortmund.
“But it’s not my responsibility to speak about those things. I like him as a player but I cannot reply to that.”
Mats Hummels, who later joined the live stream, joked about Mata’s comments on his Dortmund teammate.
The German defender said: “I was listening to you talking about Sancho! I understand that.”
At the moment, the Red Devils are favorites to land the Man City academy graduate, who has scored 14 goals and provided 15 assists in just 23 Bundesliga appearances this season.
Borussia Dortmund, who signed the English forward for a reported fee of £8m in 2017, are expected to demand around £120m for his services this summer.
