Manchester United ends bid for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are set to shelve plans to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho this summer.

The Mirror says United are unwilling to meet Borussia Dortmund's £108million asking price for the England winger when wages and agents fees would add another £100million to the cost of sealing the deal.

Old Trafford chiefs feel Dortmund's valuation is unrealistic in the aftermath of the coronavirus crisis.

And handing the 20-year-old a salary close to £300,000-a-week would also shatter the club's pay structure.

United are now set to play a waiting game to land Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's No 1 target - unless all the parties involved re-evaluate their expectations.

With Sancho unwilling to force his departure from Dortmund just three years after his refusal to turn up for training at Manchester City prompted United's rivals to allow the forward to move to Germany, the feeling at Old Trafford is that it would be foolish to blink first.
