Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that the Bundesliga club met with Manchester United officials to discuss Jadon Sancho earlier this year.

The Red Devils have been linked with a swoop to sign the England international throughout most of the calendar year.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a clear strategy of signing young British talent in the summer transfer, as highlighted by the arrivals of Welsh winger Daniel James, English full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Leicester defender Harry Maguire.

Sancho didn’t complete a move to Manchester United before the close of the summer transfer window.

But the 20-year-old looks set to be continuously linked with the Red Devils throughout the 2019-20 campaign.

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc confirmed a meeting between the German and English clubs during the Inside Borussia Dortmund documentary series, part of Amazon Prime’s “All or Nothing” series.

“A hot topic right now is Sancho and Manchester United,” Zorc is quoted as saying in the Amazon Prime documentary.

“Both his discussions with the club and mine with the consultants.

“A meeting did take place. Manchester United invited the consultant.

“But according to what I know, the consultant told the club that no matter how much money they offer, we won’t let him go this summer.

“But the player also has no intention of taking that step this summer.”

Sancho scored twice in England’s 5-3 victory over Kosovo in the Euro 2020 qualifier on Tuesday night.

Manchester United have only managed to collect five points from their opening four Premier League games.

The Red Devils haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013, when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge.

Manchester United have struggled to even finish in the top four on a regular basis in the past six seasons.
