It has been confirmed that England international winger Jadon Sancho will wear Jersey No.7 at Man United but that will only happen if the Red Devils are able to agree on a deal with the German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund.
The former Man City Academy player is Man United’s top target for the summer transfer window and they are not giving up on their bid to snap him up this summer transfer window. Despite the early reject of a bid by the Bundesliga outfit, the Red Devils are reported to be making another move to submit an improved bid.

Man United have reportedly told Borussia Dortmund that their £100 million demand for the former Man City academy player is unrealistic but they are willing to put together a structured payment plan to force the move.
Talks are still being held with Jadon Sancho’s representatives and should an agreement be reached, we could witness headway in the deal before the end of the summer transfer window.
However, No.7 Jersey is still vacant at Man United with claims that it is still being reserved for the England international after Mason Greenwood has been handed Jersey No.11, Anthony Martial, and Marcus Rashford number 10 and 11 respectively.
It is confirmed, United move for this Borussia Dortmund player may NEVER happen
If the merging reports are to be believed, then Man United might never secure the signature of Borussia Dortmund player Erling Haaland in the future after missing out on their chance in the past.
The Red Devils are reported to have made an attempt for the signature of the striker but they opted out in the January transfer window because of the agency fee that was deemed too high.

Reports claim that the Red Devils are making efforts to return for his signature in the coming summer transfer window but that might not happen as the player is not interested in a move to the club but prefers a move to the Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid.
Spanish outlet ABC claims that Real Madrid are now favourites in the chase of Erling Haaland and they are ready to do business with the German Bundesliga outfit in the coming months.
Man United already have a history of failed transfer negotiation with Borussia Dortmund with their experience during their chase of England international winger, Jadon Sancho at the just concluded summer transfer window.
A fee of £108 million could not be met by the Red Devils and that put an end to the deal.
Dortmund Won’t Sell This Man United Target In January
Manchester United are destined to fail if they try to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho when the transfer window reopens in January.
This is according to the report from German newspaper Bild which said that Borussia Dortmund want to keep the Manchester United target until next summer at least.
England international Jadon Sancho has been the first name on the list of transfer targets at Manchester United for a while and the pursuit is set to continue into the 2021 winter transfer window after the club failed to sign him in this 2020 summer transfer window.

Borussia Dortmund slapped a transfer fee of £108m on the 20-year-old attacker and this prevented the club from pursuing a move for him.
Jadon Sancho was reportedly one of the four transfer targets submitted to the club by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but the Norwegian tactician didn’t get the Englishman or any of the other three players on his list.
In the absence of Sancho and others, the club signed five players including the experienced Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguayan has signed for the Red Devils on a free transfer.
The other four signings are Donny Van De Beek, Alex Telles, Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellestri.
EPL: Should Man United be blamed for Sancho’s failed saga?
EPL giant, Man United’s biggest disappointment in this summer transfer window was failing to land Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer transfer window as he happens to be their top target.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was keen on the winger and had identified the England international player as the best fit for the club while it is reported that Jadon Sancho is also interested in a move to the Old Trafford.
The Red Devils spent several weeks on the negotiation table with the German Bundesliga outfit but failed to agree on the deal with Borussia Dortmund insisting on £108 million for the Man City academy product. Efforts to convince the club with a £90 million bid failed.

However, Sky Sports News’ Dharmesh Sheth hinted that the Red Devils should be blamed for the failure of the deal as they did not handle it properly.
He noted that both Borussia Dortmund and Jadon Sancho’s representatives were left bemused and bewildered at how the Red Devils dealt with trying to secure the deal.
There is no doubt about Jadon Sancho’s stay in Germany this season and this might be Manchester United’s last opportunity to capture the England international winger unless they are able to meet Borussia Dortmund’s demands in the coming transfer windows.
