Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification after finishing the 2018/19 campaign in sixth spot on the Premier League table. As a consequence, United will need to adapt their transfer business because they will miss out on millions from TV money.

Sancho was understood to be one of the club's key targets to help them return to former glories, but they have now pulled out of the race for the 19-year-old, who has taken the Bundesliga by storm.

According to ESPN, Borussia Dortmund rebuffed all enquiries into the England international's availability, and have made it clear they have no desire to sell one of their key assets.

ESPN sources have claimed BVB are asking for a fee of about €100 million (R1.6 billion) to consider selling Sancho, which has caused United to end their pursuit of the skilful winger.

The English side is believed to see the asking price as an over-inflated valuation of a player who has just two full seasons of senior football under his belt.
