    Borussia Dortmund CEO offers Manchester United hope after failed Jadon Sancho pursuit this summer

    ‘They misjudged the situation’: Borussia Dortmund CEO believes Manchester United got Jadon Sancho pursuit all wrong this summer… but gives fresh hope to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by insisting ‘you can never say a player is completely unsellable’

    • Dortmund held firm on their €120m valuation of the England international 
    • 20-year-old Sancho had reportedly agreed personal terms with the Red Devils  
    • Hans-Joachim Watzke said there would also be no compromises next summer  

    Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke after Manchester United‘s protracted and ultimately failed bid for Jadon Sancho, but offered hope that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could eventually land their number one target. 

    The 20-year-old is one of the hottest properties and scored 20 goals in 44 games last season as Dortmund finished second in the Bundesliga and reached the round of 16 in the Champions League.

    United were intent on signing the England international with the player having reportedly agreed personal terms, but Dortmund held firm with an asking price of €120 million (£109m), which the Red Devils were unwilling to match due to the uncertain financial situation caused by Covid-19.

    Jadon Sancho was at Manchester City’s academy but has been on their rivals’ radar for a while

    Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc said back in August that Sancho would remain at the club for the upcoming season, but United felt that their Champions League rivals would relent if the right offer came along despite the former Manchester City academy player signing an improved contract at the Westfalenstadion until 2023. 

    The Premier League giants desperately tried to get a deal over the line in the final days and hours of the transfer window, but Sancho’s current employers weren’t entertaining offers having set a deadline of August 10 for his departure.

    Watzke said they would not compromise next summer either over the sale of Sancho.

    Without mentioning United by name, he said: ‘[They] misjudged the situation. We would be more willing to compromise. We had a clear line and will continue to do so next summer.

    ‘In this industry, you can never say that a player is completely unsellable.

    ‘I heard and read everywhere in the spring that Sancho was gone. But he’s here. We had an agreement with him.’

    Sancho hasn’t allowed the noise about his potential move to distract him, with the forward assisting Marco Reus in a 1-0 win away at Hoffenheim.

    Dortmund sit third behind Bayern Munich and leaders RB Leipzig and Sancho will hope to put in another influential display when his side kick off their Champions League campaign at Lazio before hosting Schalke 04 next weekend in the first Revierderby of the season.
