Manchester United have actively been in the pursuit of Jadon Sancho since the start of the transfer window with Dortmund setting August 10 as the deadline for the business as they are to start their Pre-season training, while some are all saying people at Manchester United believe that deadline is an artificial one just to threaten them into Rushing a deal.
Dortmund’s Sporting Director, Micheal Zorc, confirmed on Sunday that the England international won’t be moving this Summer as they’ve increased his contract till 2023 in a bid to maintain their stance on his future.
Due to past records with Players like Dembele and Aubameyang, Journalists around the World believe Dortmund will still sell for the price they want, But will Manchester United go that extra mile to get their priority target?
