Epl giant, Manchester United have themselves to blame for failing to sign top transfer target Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, according to an official from the German Bundesliga side.

The Red Devils were interested in England international Jadon Sancho and this prompted talks with his team, Borussia Dortmund.

The Germans gave Manchester United the financial conditions for a Jadon Sancho transfer to Old Trafford with an August 10 deadline thought to be very flexible.

Manchester United were not able to meet those financial conditions, especially the £108m (€120m) transfer fee demanded for the 20-year-old winger.

Borussia Dortmund director Michael Zorc told Sky Germany that the club informed Jadon Sancho of the conditions that needed to be met for his transfer plus deadline for the transfer.

He added that the deadline given ended without any concrete offer that would prompt the club to sell their prized asset.

Jadon Sancho has three years left to run on his Borussia Dortmund contract.

In the absence of Jadon Sancho at Manchester United this season, the Red Devils can look forward to Edinson Cavani who will join the club tomorrow.

The club has agreed a deal with the free agent and he’ll earn £220,000 as his salary on a weekly basis.
