Manchester United’s £91.3m bid for Sancho rejected by Borussia Dortmund

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

The offer was for an initial £73m, rising to up to £91.3m, which fell short of Dortmund’s £108m valuation.

Sancho has not flown with the rest of the Dortmund squad for the German Super Cup in Munich against Bayern due to a “respiratory infection”. He has tested negative for Covid-19.

A bid was expected from the Premier League club this week, but all of the noises coming from Dortmund would suggest Sancho is staying in Germany.

Earlier on Tuesday, Dortmund captain Marco Reus told Sky in Germany Sancho is staying for one more year.

United have not given up on trying to sign the 20-year-old, despite missing the August 10 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 October 5.

United made a breakthrough in negotiations with Sancho’s representatives earlier this month, with wages and agents fees no longer thought to be an issue for the Premier League club.

However, on September 23, Dharmesh Sheth told The Transfer Show Borussia Dortmund had been left “bemused” by United’s attempts to sign the England forward.

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