In spite of the ongoing scandals between Sancho and Manchester United throughout the summer window, the England star eventually stayed in Dortmund. According to The Athletic, Manchester United has never come close to signing Sancho, and even at the last moment of the transfer window, the deal has not progressed.
According to the report, Dortmund CEO Watzke personally called Manchester United when the summer window was opened. He clearly stated the cost of buying Sancho and when the transaction needs to be completed. Sancho was ready to join Manchester United. , But it is not urgent to join this summer.
When Dortmund’s director Zolk said on August 10 that Sancho’s decision was final, a panicked Manchester United executive called to ask if the statement was true. Zork replied: "What else do you expect? What about such an answer? You are very clear about the conditions."
The report pointed out that there is a feeling inside Dortmund that Manchester United did not take their request seriously, or Manchester United did not intend to complete the transaction. The media claimed that Sancho himself believed that Manchester United’s offer was too low. Even if Manchester United gave the correct offer later, he would question why he did not send the offer earlier.
