Jadon Sancho's Dream 5-A-Side Team Doesn't Include Lionel Messi Or Cristiano Ronaldo

Jadon Sancho hasn't picked either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo in his dream five-a-side team, and there's no room for defending in the England player's team either.

The Borussia Dortmund forward is one of the most exciting players in world football right now and could even be one of the players to take over from Messi and Ronaldo as the world's best, once they've retired.

Given the chance to pick an all time dream five-a-side team, Sancho wouldn't actually play alongside either of the men who has won 11 Ballon d'Or titles between them.

Instead, as per Bleacher Report, the 20-year-old would pick Robinho, Ronaldinho, Neymar and Brazil's Ronaldo to play alongside himself. Footballers rarely care for goalkeepers when picking their team.

The former Manchester City youngster has been strongly linked with a return to the Premier League this summer, with Manchester United having a strong interest in the forward.

So far there has been no deal between Dortmund and United, with the Bundesliga club reportedly unwilling to budge on their price, but the player isn't letting it affect him.

"I try not to look at the media because I think once you start looking at all that it would be easy to get carried away with it. It can affect players." he told Soccerbible.

"For me it's about not looking at those things and just focusing on trying to do the best I can on the pitch. Especially in training. For me it's about improving every single day.

"It's important for me to keep a smile on my face and keep happy. I don't really look at all the noise and all that stuff. I'd rather keep my head down, keep focus and improve every day."

Sancho is currently part of the England squad playing in the Nations League and he would have undoubtedly been an important player in the Euros this summer until it was pushed back to next year.

The former Watford youngster thinks that could benefit England, adding, "I don't mind it being pushed back though. I feel like the England squad has a lot of players who are interesting at the moment. It's going to be interesting to see who makes the squad.

"The players we have now are great and the young players that are coming up now like Bukayo Saka, Mason Greenwood - these guys are talented. It's interesting to see what they're doing week in, week out. They're doing a madness so it's going to be a very tough decision for Gareth Southgate to make.

"Again it's healthy competition and you've just got to do your thing and everyone is going to be doing their best. It's exciting to see."
