Manchester United’s hopes of a signing Borussia Dortmund and England starlet Jadon Sancho could be over, if the latest reports are to be believed.
Sancho has been in incredible form for the Bundesliga giants this season, racking up 11 goals and 17 assists in 32 Bundesliga appearances so far.
Dortmund paid just £7m to sign Sancho from Manchester City in 2017, a fee that looks to be an absolute snip given his apparent £100million valuation now, while United have been linked a swoop for the England international as they look to help Ole Gunnar Solskjaer overhaul his squad ahead of next season.
A report from the Daily Mail claims that although Dortmund were intent on keeping Sancho into next season, United were ready to ‘test their resolve’ with a club-record bid.
The player was also ‘open to the idea’ of returning to Manchester, though those hopes have been severely dashed by the Red Devils’ failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
United saw their top four hopes ended with a 1-1 draw at bottom side Huddersfield, meaning they will be back in the Europa League in 2019/20.
Dortmund meanwhile will be playing in Europe’s elite club competition next season, giving Sancho a chance to continue developing at the highest level.
