Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho’s move to Manchester United has hit a major speedbump after the Red Devils failed to qualify for Champions League football next season, the Daily Mail reports.
The 19-year-old, who joined BVB from United’s rival Manchester City back in 2017, had been pegged as United’s number one target for the summer window to fill the right-wing position which has caused them so many problems this campaign.
The move, reportedly worth a club record £100m, was rumoured to be attractive to Sancho who left England to gain first-team football in the Bundesliga.
But after United’s disappointing collapse in the last few weeks, culminating in a 1-1 draw against already-relegated Huddersfield, it now seems that the deal for the London born winger is on the rocks.
Sancho has become a shining star in the Bundesliga since his move breaking into the Dortmund side and playing a key role in this year’s title challenge with a tally of 12 goals and 19 assists in his 41 appearances for the German side.
He also broke into the England set-up earlier this season, becoming one of only a handful of players to make the cut for the national team while plying their trade abroad, making four appearances for the Three Lions.
Sancho’s current deal runs until 2022 but with no other sides stepping forward to sign the young star it seems his stay at Signal Iduna Park may extend beyond then.
