Borussia Dortmund chief Zorc dismisses Man Utd: Sancho stays. Decision is FINAL

Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has told Manchester United to forget about signing Jadon Sancho this summer.

United have been in hot pursuit of the England star and were still hopeful of getting a mega-money deal over the line despite missing Dortmund's deadline to sign him today.

And on Monday, Dortmund chief Zorc insisted United have no chance of signing Sancho now.

Zorc said: "We plan with Jadon Sancho. He'll play for us next season. The decision is final. I think that answers all of the questions."

Zorc also went on to reveal that the club secretly renewed Sancho's contract until 2023 a year ago.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has been resolute in holding out for a huge €120m fee for the England international, while United are refusing to go higher than €80m.
