Manchester United have had a bid worth up to €100m (£91.3m) for Jadon Sancho rejected by Borussia Dortmund.
United have not given up on trying to sign the 20-year-old, despite missing the August 10 deadline the Bundesliga club 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.
