The on-off saga of Jadon Sancho’s possible transfer to Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund is looking less likely this morning, as BVB set off on to their pre-season training camp in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland with their English midfielder among the travelling party.
All summer Dortmund have made it clear that they will accept nothing less then €120 million for the 20 year old and Manchester United have yet to put in an offer approaching this valuation. In addition, they also said that the date of departure for the training camp was a deadline and, with no deal on the table, that matter should in theory be closed and Sancho can look forward to a fourth season in black and yellow.
With Manchester United now in north west Germany for the latter stages of the Europa League and their minds fully focused on that competition (for which they are the favourites), it does seem that the biggest potential transfer of the summer between England and Germany will not now be taking place. That honour remains with Timo Werner, with Kai Havertz still waiting in the wings.
