It is understood United can meet the 20-year-old’s personal terms, but there is no agreement over a fee.

 The deadline for any Dortmund deal has passed and the German side do not want to sell Sancho.

Dortmund want over £100m for Sancho, who they signed from Manchester City for £10m in 2017. United do not feel a deal is possible at that valuation.

The Premier League club are losing about £5m for every match played match at Old Trafford played behind closed doors amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The transfer window closes on 5 October .

Their only significant signing so far is Netherlands midfielder , Donny van de Beek for an initial 35m euros from Ajax .
