MANCHESTER UNITED have had an £89million bid for Jadon Sancho REJECTED by Borussia Dortmund, according to reports in Germany.
The Red Devils secured Champions League football with a 2-0 win over Leicester yesterday and are not hanging around as they look to splash the extra guaranteed cash.
Bild extraordinarily claim the German side have batted away an offer that comes close to 100million euros.
Former Man City youth product Sancho has been consistently linked with a move to the red side of Manchester for months.
The 20-year-old will have been bouyed by United’s third-placed finish on the Premier League’s final day as he looks to play in Europe’s premier competition next season.
He has recently been spotted enjoying some time off on a luxury yacht in Ibiza with a mystery woman.
The England star has been keeping fit on the party island and United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to snap him up.
Further reports in Germany from Kicker, suggest the starlet has always considered United a “dream destination”.
The report states United will earn an extra £60m by qualifying for the Champions League over the Europa League.
And it could be used to immediately lure Sancho to Old Trafford from Dortmund.
But the German side are demanding over £91m for their prized asset.
They do not want to sell Sancho any cheaper despite the market uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic, with the midfielder’s contract not up for two more years.
The club expect him to report back on Thursday and have no financial need to sell up.
But the Bundesliga outfit are readying themselves for the day when an acceptable offer eventually arrives from the United hierarchy – by lining up potential replacements.
Birmingham teenager Jude Bellingham has already joined the club in a £25m deal.
Ironically, Sancho helped tip Bellingham in favour of joining Dortmund over Manchester United.
