Manchester United are reportedly unwilling to abandon Jadon Sancho’s search this summer until the English star publicly admits he wants to stay at Borussia Dortmund.

Sancho, 20, was blown away throughout the saga, while Dortmund bosses have insisted he will spend at least one more season in Germany.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had made Sancho his # 1 target, but talks over a £ 108m deal stalled

Negotiations to bring Sancho to Old Trafford have been hampered by the two clubs’ valuation difference and player wage demands, but the Sun says United are not ready to give up on a deal yet.
United is believed to have offered between £ 60-70m upfront with significant additions for Sancho – who was rejected by Dortmund – and admitted earlier this summer that his £ 300,000 a week salary would shatter. their pay structure.
However, they believe they could still land their man if he pushes for a move this summer and they want the England international to make a statement clarifying his plans for the immediate future.
Despite this, United have already turned their attention to other goals with Ajax’s Donny van de Beek ready to sign after a £ 40m fee was agreed.

The club, meanwhile, is getting closer to buying Donny van de Beek from Ajax for £ 40m.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also looking to add a central defender this summer and is watching RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano.
The highly sought-after Frenchman won’t come cheap and it is understood that United are open to the idea of dumping Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo in an attempt to finance a move.
Meanwhile, a move for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish continues to be debated and Sports mail understands that the two clubs have held talks on a possible £ 80 million deal.
Grealish is a prime target for United, but if they could re-launch talks for Sancho, that would likely mean the end of their interest in the new English boy.
