Man Utd had his first offer for Jadon Sancho, Borussia Dortmund winger, rejected by the Bundesliga club, according to information from Germany.
Rumors have persisted for the past 18 months that United will try to secure a deal for Sancho, with the Red Devils now appearing to be trying to sign with Sancho this summer.
The Independent said on Friday that Dortmund is ‘willing to let’ Sancho leave this summer, but only ‘at the right price’ with ‘all sides are confident that a deal can be made’.

The newspaper said the “big caveat” would be if Man Utd didn’t qualify for the Champions League – but with the Red Devils finishing third in the Premier League on Sunday, there seems to be little to hold on to a deal.
The Bundesliga team is “certain” that Man Utd is “serious” in its interest, with the report saying that Dortmund wants 120 million euros.
Bild adds that United is ‘preparing a new offer’ after Dortmund declined an offer of € 98 million.
In addition, the German publication says Dortmund wants a deal in the next two weeks and will not be sold after August 10 – when the German side travels to Switzerland for a pre-season training camp.
However, James Ducker, from Daily Telegraph The allegations that Man Utd made an offer for Sancho are false.
United did not offer £ 89 million to Sancho and there has still been no formal contact with Borussia Dortmund #mufc
