Man Utd are reportedly ready to end their chase for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho and turn elsewhere for alternatives.
This transfer saga has dragged on for what now seems like an eternity, with Dortmund refusing to lower their €140m valuation for their player.
The question hanging in the air right now is if Man Utd will eventually sign Sancho or not, after their latest £98m (€115) offer was rejected by Dortmund.
This transfer saga is certainly one to pay attention to.
TOP STORY – UNITED SET TO STOP SANCHO TRANSFER
Man Utd have issued a warning to Borussia Dortmund this morning, saying they are prepared to halt all talks of signing Jadon Sancho, claiming they won’t be bullied into paying such a large fee for the English man.
Sancho has been tipped to join Manchester United this summer, with Bleacher Reports claiming the attacker had agreed personal terms with United, although Dortmund are still holding out for £120m (€140m).
But Footy Area, Sky Sports, The Guardian, ESPN and The Mirror confirms that United have already begun pursuing alternatives after Dortmund refused to lower their asking fee.
