Man Utd not ruling out trying again for Sancho - though agent contact 'stopped'

Manchester United are not ruling out reigniting interest in Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho.

The Manchester Evening News says United are refusing to rule out a move for Sancho amid Borussia Dortmund's apparent willingness to sell the winger in the summer.

United actually stopped dialogue over a possible transfer with Sancho's agent, Emeka Obasi, three weeks before the summer transfer window closed.

United have since invested £46million on rookie right-sided forwards Amad and Facundo Pellistri, and the club's structure are in agreement a centre forward and a centre-back are more pressing areas to address.

Despite Sancho's underwhelming form for Dortmund, as well as a recent muscle injury that has sidelined him for over a month, United have not ended their interest in the England international and the Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted the club would be prepared to sell Sancho for an 'exceptional offer'.
