Man Utd refuse to give up on Sancho signing despite Dortmund claims


Jadon Sancho Borussia Dortmund 2019-20

Manchester United are refusing to giveup in their pursuit ofJadon Sancho despite Borussia Dortmuindinsisting thatthe winger will not be leaving the club this summer.

Dortmund, however, set their own deadline of August 10 to finalise a transfer as they set off for their pre-season training camp in Switzerland.

Sancho was named in Lucien Favre's squad for the trip, and with a deal not agreed upon, sporting directorMichael Zorc seemed to suggest on Monday that United's hopes of signing Sancho were over.

“Jadon Sancho will play with us next season,” he told reporters. “The decision is final. I think that answers all the questions.

“Last summer we adjusted Jadon's salary to match the development of his performances. So in context, we had already extended his contract until 2023 back then."

It is understood Sancho is keen on a move to Old Trafford and that United have not given up hope of landing the former Manchester City man despite Zorc’s comments.

Goal has learned thatUnited are frustrated at the pace of discussions, which are being managed -at Dortmund’s request - byan independent agent.

Player wages and agent fees continue to pose a problem in negotiations, and Unitedare wary of making the same mistake they did with Alexis Sanchez, where his huge £560,000-a-week wages ended up ripping up the whole salary structure at the club.

It is understood Dortmund are holding out for a fee of €120 million (£108m/$142m) for Sancho,but United believe that is not a realistic figure given the state of their finances due to the impact of Covid-19.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has repeatedly warned it will "not be business as usual in this summer’s window", with United being forced to reassess the market despite their huge wealth.

United believe that the August 10 deadline set by Dortmund was merely arbitrary andthey still believe a deal can be agreed before the transfer window closes on October 5.
