Manchester United are refusing to rule out a move for Jadon Sancho amid Borussia Dortmund’s apparent willingness to sell the winger in the summer.
Sancho, 21, was United‘s priority target last year but the club failed to negotiate a compromise with Sancho’s representative and Dortmund stubbornly refused to sell the England international.
The Manchester Evening News understands United actually stopped dialogue over a possible transfer with Sancho’s agent, Emeka Obasi, three weeks before the summer transfer window closed.
United have since invested £46million on rookie right-sided forwards Amad and Facundo Pellistri, and the club’s structure are in agreement a centre forward and a centre-back are more pressing areas to address.
Despite Sancho’s underwhelming form for Dortmund, as well as a recent muscle injury that has sidelined him for over a month, United have not ended their interest in the England international and the Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted the club would be prepared to sell Sancho for an ‘exceptional offer’.
