Manchester United tried to sign Borussia Dortmund player Jadon Sancho throughout the latest transfer market until the window closed on Monday, but it has been revealed that the Red Devils tried to sign another player from the German Bundesliga club on the last day of the transfer window.
According to the report via ESPN, Manchester United tried to sign Borussia Dortmund left-back Nico Schulz on loan before the transfer window ended.
The Red Devils were said to have offered €1m as the loan fee for the German international and that the club will cover his salary throughout the loan spell.

The Manchester United proposal led to Borussia Dortmund questioning the competence of the club’s recruitment team.
Dortmund rejected the lean offer for Schulz from Manchester United and the club had to look elsewhere for their left-back.
On deadline day, Manchester United completed the transfer of Alex Telles from Portugal.
Alex Telles is a Brazilian international who was playing for Portuguese champions FC Porto before Manchester United signed him last week in a £15.4m deal.
The 27-year-old will provide competition for Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams at left-back.
His first game for Manchester United could be the Premier League trip to Newcastle United this week.
Dortmund finally hand hope to Manchester United on Sancho
Manchester United did not sign England international winger Jadon Sancho last summer transfer window but that does not mean a deal will not go down later in the future.
The Red Devils have made the former Man City academy player their first choice but they were unable to agree on a fee with the German Bundesliga club, Borussia Dortmund and that put an end to the saga.
However, Borussia Dortmund have released a statement hinting that Manchester United could still get Jadon Sancho to sign at the Old Trafford, but made it clear it will only happen in the future.

The club clearly stated that they expected Jadon Sancho to remain at the club for AT LEAST ONE MORE SEASON. This means he could be leaving the club in the coming summer transfer window.
Commentators have expressed the possibility of an agreement between the two clubs for a deal to happen in the next summer window but that was not stated anywhere by either of the clubs.
The Red Devils will now move ahead with their transfer activities by looking out for an alternative so as to rebuild the squad in January.
There is no chance this player will remain at United as conflict with club mounts
English Premier League club Man United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is unhappy at Old Trafford and he is reported to be in conflict with the club for not sanctioning his sale in the last summer transfer window.

The South American reportedly had offers from several clubs but Manchester United refused to let him leave. Everton were keen give him the opportunity of regular playing time, according to leading journalist Gianluca Di Marzio but the Red Devils denied him the move.

However, it will be a big surprise to see Sergio Romero at Manchester United after the January winter transfer window because he is desperate to leave the club and has suitors both in the Premier League and abroad.
Everton are believed to be interested in Sergio Romero while MLS clubs are also hoping to agree on a deal for him but that will depend on Man United.
David De Gea has been favored for the first-team role despite his unsatisfactory performance last season but the door is opened to Dean Henderson to nail down a regular first-choice shirt.
Manchester United are now stabilized with a number of wins across all competitions.

Sami Khedira joined Juventus from Real Madrid in 2015 and he has won the league title in each of his five seasons in Turin.
