Transfer Update: Manchester United’s £91.3m bid for Jadon Sancho rejected by Borussia Dortmund

Manchester United have had a bid worth up to £91.3m (€100m) for Jadon Sancho rejected by German Club Borussia Dortmund.

The offer, which was believed to be around an initial £73m, rising to up to £91.3m, was turned down as it fell short of Dortmund’s £108m valuation of the player.

Sancho, however, has not travelled with the rest of the Dortmund squad for their German Super Cup in Munich against Bayern due to a “respiratory infection” although he has tested negative for Covid-19.

A bid was expected from the Premier League club this week, but all indications from Dortmund points to Sancho staying in Germany.

The club’s captain, Marco Reus, earlier on Tuesday, told reporters Sancho is staying for one more year.

United have also not given up on trying to get the 20-year-old, despite missing the 10 August deadline the Bundesliga club had set for the deal to be completed.

Despite the Dortmund hierarchy stating on several occasions – both before and after the deadline – that if it was not met Sancho would remain with the club, rumblings have continued over United submitting a bid before the transfer window closes on 5 October 2020.

Wages and agents fees would no longer be an issue for the Premier League club who made a breakthrough in negotiations  with Sancho’s representatives earlier this month.

United’s only signing of the summer has been midfielder, Donny van de Beek, whom they signed from Ajax, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested the club are still hoping to do more business.
