Manchester United’s hopes of signing Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund are “in tatters” after the club’s failure to qualify for the Champions League, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the fact that Manchester United have missed out on a top-four finish in the Premier League means that they are unlikely to be able to sign the 19-year-old this summer.

The same story says that Manchester United were hoping to make a huge summer move to try and bring the English winger to Old Trafford, but their failure to qualify for the Champions League have dented those hopes.

The article claims that Borussia Dortmund are “determined” to keep hold of Sancho, who is under contract at the German club until 2022.

According to the same story, Sancho was open to the idea of making a move to Old Trafford, but those hopes have been severely dented by the Red Devils’ failure to qualify for the Champions League.

Sancho has scored 11 goals and made 14 assists in 32 Bundesliga games for Dortmund so far this season.

The Red Devils will take on Cardiff City at Old Trafford in the final game of the season on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.
