Manchester United had a €140million bid for Jadon Sancho rejected by Borussia Dortmund in January, according to a report.

United chased a deal for the winger last summer but their unsuccessful pursuit has only increased their interest.

In fact, several reports say the England international is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s top target after his stunning performances this term.

Sancho, arguably the most exciting young player in Europe, is believed to be valued at over €100million and Dortmund are under no pressure to budge from that valuation.

Indeed, the 20-year-old will still command a huge fee despite the global pandemic likely to push his price down.

With United tracking Sancho for some time, AS claims the Red Devils made a huge €140million offer in February.

The Spanish publication adds that Dortmund rejected that offer as United began a serious pursuit of the winger.

Sancho moved to Dortmund in the summer of 2017 and he has scored 34 goals in 94 appearances.

He struggled for fitness upon the resumption of the German top flight last month, but he scored a hat-trick against Paderborn on his first start since before the shutdown in March.

Earlier reports claimed February was indeed a busy month for United, with enquiries also made into Jack Grealish‘s availability.

The Aston Villa captain is reportedly another top target for Solskjaer, who is targeting exciting British talent.

SANCHO IN, THREE OUT AT MAN UTD?

While United are reportedly targeting a move for Sancho, three potential sales from the club include defender Marcos Rojo.

Rojo, who has only made nine appearances for United this term, joined Estudiantes on loan in January.

Injury problems mean he has only made one appearance in Argentina so far, but both sides are reportedly keen to extend the deal.

However, United reportedly want to sell Rojo for £9.5million while Estudiantes are keen on another loan move.

As well as Rojo, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones could also leave United before the start of next season.

Smalling has enjoyed his time on loan at Roma and wants to turn his deal into a permanent contract.
