Manchester United are said to have failed with their opening bid for Jadon Sancho with Borussia Dortmund setting a deadline for the player
The Red Devils are looking to strengthen their squad for some time and Jadon Sancho has always been one of the first names on the 'buy list'. The England international playing for Borussia Dortmund has attracted many top clubs but Manchester United have always been the favourites.
Borussia Dortmund Spun Manchester United Bid For Jadon Sancho
After failing to meet Borussia Dortmund's £108million asking price last year, Manchester United have once again reignited their interest for Sancho. According to Germany's BILD, Manchester United have tested the waters with an offer of €69.5m (£60m) which was swiftly rejected by the Bundesliga club.
According to the latest reports Sancho has agreed personal terms with Manchester United and what remains is a negotiation between Dortmund and United.

Manchester United would like to get the deal done as soon as possible and focus on other areas where they need strengthening. “Sancho is a great player.
Do Manchester United Really Need Jadon Sancho?
With Mason Greenwood having proved himself worthy of that spot, one concern over Sancho’s arrival might be what it means for the United academy graduate.
Greenwood is known for his top quality finishing abilities, with Sancho's arrival he could be shifted to a number 9 role. In that case one of Anthony Martial and the newly renewed Edison Cavani have to be dropped or sold. Sancho's pace and on ball talent can cause a lot of damage to opponents and with a proper number 9, the pair can be lethal.
