Jadon Sancho, for the second straight game in the space of three days is not in Borussia Dortmund match day squad.
The 20-year-old missed out of Borussia Dortmund’s 3-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the German Cup on Wednesday and he’s set to miss this weekend’s match at home to Freiburg as his potential move to Manchester United continues to dominate the headlines.
According to reports, Manchester United submitted a bid of €90m including additional fees in the region of €20m which was rejected by the German side.
Borussia Dortmund from the onset have placed a €120m on the English winger – a valuation Manchester United are yet to met for the past few months.
Jadon Sancho remains Ole Gunnar Solskjaer main summer target as the transfer window draws to a close.
Reports suggest another bid will be submitted by the Red Devils before the transfer window in England shuts down on Monday.
Borussia Dortmund’s Sport Director, Michael Zorc said they have been in contact with Manchester United in the past and he doesn’t think things will change in the next three days.
Of course we communicated with Manchester United in the past. But everything there is to tell on this matter from our end has already been said. And that won’t change over the next three days.
On the flipside, if the Jadon Sancho deal fails to materialize, Manchester United are reportedly in talks with Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele.
The 13-time Premier League Champions wants to bring the winger on loan to Old Trafford but a deal hasn’t been reached yet.
It remains to be seen which of these players will end up at Old Trafford on or before Monday night.
