It has been revealed that English Premier League outfit Man United made an attempt to snap up another Borussia Dortmund player Nico Schulz on the transfer deadline day but failed.

The report, according to ESPN claims that the German international left-back was also considered and a loan deal was proposed by the Red Devils worth £1 million but the Bundesliga outfit rejected the move.

ESPM claims that the German Bundesliga outfit were left baffled and questioned the Red Devils ‘recruitment and scouting team’s credentials, especially in their approach to doing deals.

It is no longer news that the Red Devils made an attempt to snap up the signature of England international winger Jadon Sancho in the summer transfer window but failed to meet with the £108 million demand by the German side.

Jadon Sancho was the top priority for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but for the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the club, they could not meet up financially and the deal was called off.

It is claimed that the Red Devils will return for the signature of the Man City academy product but they are unlikely not to face competition as other clubs have been mentioned to be interested in the deal

Meanwhile, Jadon Sanho is reportedly interested in a move to Man United but he has to respect his contract with the club.
