Manchester City are now hopeful of keeping hold of the youngster, despite the player stalling on a new contract.
The player had turned down a professional contract with the club but now City believe he will stay at the Etihad Stadium.
Sancho has been linked with moves away from Manchester City this summer, with RB Leipzig paying close attention to his developments.
The Bundesliga runners up would have been able to secure the player’s signature for a fraction of the price, compared to English clubs due to compensation rules.
Sancho was angered about being left out of the pre-season tour squad as youngsters Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz caught the eye in the states.
City came close to losing Tosin Adarabioyo earlier in the window through similar circumstances, but now both look set to remain with Pep Guardiola.
