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.
