Make a decision! Borussia Dortmund ‘give Manchester United August 10 ultimatum’ to decide £ 100m for Jadon Sancho, Bild claims the deal is AF
- Jadon Sancho is one of Manchester United’s long-term goals for their attack
- The English international has flourished since joining Borussia Dortmund in 2017
- According to reports in Germany, Dortmund has set a deadline for United to close a deal
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lets Mason Greenwood improve and has to decide
Manchester United have been told to make a deal for Jadon Sancho by August 10 or to forget about it, according to reports.
Worth an estimated £ 100 million, Sancho is a long-term target for United and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as they plan to upgrade their right-wing attack option in addition to Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
In an effort to avoid being drawn into a want-he-not-he scenario throughout the summer transfer window, Bild report that Dortmund United have said they will set an August 10 deadline for settling a deal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is an admirer of the player, but must decide to pursue a deal
The report in Germany outlines how Dortmund is keen to retain power in negotiations, and they are now reaching out to United to make sure Sancho’s future is somehow quickly resolved.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola previously revealed they wouldn’t push for the youngster to re-contract, paving the way for United to make a move if they wish.
Sancho once again enjoyed a great campaign in Germany, with Dortmund finishing second to champions Bayern Munich.

In 32 Bundesliga games for Dortmund, he scored a whopping 17 goals in addition to 16 assists when they finished second.
This output made him Dortmund’s top scorer and assist-maker in the league.
Sancho joined the club in 2017 for just £ 8m from Manchester City and has since grown into one of the team’s top-performing teams, which is why the club is now looking at a huge win if he left.
Where the deal could fail is that United would be aware of not spending the kind of money it takes to praise Sancho from Germany in the current economic climate because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Swap deals and reduced fee deals are expected to become commonplace this summer, and the rise of Mason Greenwood has also complicated where Solskjaer is headed from here.
Greenwood scored twice in the 5-2 game against Bournemouth to bring the 18-year-old’s total to eight in the Premier League this season, the highest scorer of his age in the highest flight since Wayne Rooney for Everton in 2003-04 .
Mason Greenwood’s rise has complicated a deal because Solskjaer could now wait
Speaking of Greenwood’s climb since football’s return, Solskjaer said, “If you play for Manchester United, I think that’s a good enough test.
“If you can play for United, you can play for any team.
Mason has the qualities not many others have, so he could play for the full English team or the Under 21s.
“He always scores goals. He will fill in, so we continue to build it up at the gym and on the field. ‘
