With the end of the current transfer window fast approaching, desperate Manchester United have been handed a fresh warning by Borussia Dortmund as the Premier League side continue to push for the transfer of England international, Jadon Sancho.
The England international, currently a player of Borussia Dortmund has remained Manchester United No. 1 transfer target. This they hope to achieve before next week’s transfer deadline
But Dortmund have told Manchester United that nothing less than £108million will see them land Jadon Sancho before deadline day. United had hoped Dortmund would accept an offer of £90m for Sancho, the closer it got to deadline day.
United remain hopeful a deal can be agreed with Borussia Dortmund for Sancho before the transfer window shuts next Tuesday.
But United remain adamant that they will not overpay for him.
Dortmund have reiterated they will not budge from their valuation of the England forward and will not entertain the prospect of selling him unless United meet the asking price.
Discussions are ongoing between United and Dortmund, through an intermediary, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperate to sign the 20-year-old to bolster his attack this season.
But the Bundesliga club are standing firm and adamant they will only sell on their terms.
While United have made significant progress with regard to wages and agents’ fees in their pursuit of Sancho, the obstacle they have so far been unable to clear has been the fee for the winger.
Sancho is not with the Dortmund squad for their German Super Cup clash with Bayern Munich on Wednesday. He has not travelled to Bavaria as he is suffering from what BVB have termed “a respiratory infection.”
United are still pushing ahead with a move for Porto left-back Alex Telles, while Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele remains an option, but only on a loan deal.
