Fresh Man Utd bid for Sancho in January, Dortmund’s stand

In January, according to reports, Borussia Dortmund will reject any attempts by Man Utd to take Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford.

Sancho had long been regarded as the primary transfer priority of United heading into this latest window, with Dortmund not averse to discussing the departure of the winger.

The Germans presented their requirements-£108m (€120m) and an August 10 deadline-but ‘deluded’ Man United ignored them and instead struck deals in their problem place for two teenage right wingers.

It has since been reported that Sancho feels ‘underrated’ by the low-balling bid from United, but there have now been new reports connecting Sancho with Man Utd.

ESPN said last week that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still sees Sancho and Erling Haaland as his main targets moving forward.

However, German publication Bild (via Sport Witness) claims that the latest rumours of Man Utd interest in a January move are ‘without any concrete background’.

The manager of Man Utd is known to regard the Dortmund pair as an integral part of his long-term vision at Old Trafford, although other sources have indicated that the Red Devils will try again in the transfer window of January.
Dortmund needs a boost on its finances, with the club losing massive sums of money due to the pandemic, but the Bundesliga outfit is not prepared to lose Sancho part-way through the season, despite that.

The German side claims Sancho is ‘on the way’ to becoming one of the biggest stars in the world and will also reject Man Utd’s €120 m bid in January.
