REVEALED: Man Utd may not make Sancho offer out of EMBARRASSMENT

Manchester United are yet to make an offer for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, it has been revealed.

The Daily Mail says United denied reports that they have made a £91.2million offer for Sancho – £73m plus £18.2m in add-ons – which has been rejected by Dortmund.

However, the 20-year-old winger pulled out of the German Super Cup clash against Bayern Munich with Dortmund blaming his absence on a mystery respiratory infection.

Sancho remains United's No 1 target but they have been worried about losing face and the backlash from fans if a formal bid is turned down.

They are believed to have held discussions with intermediaries on Tuesday and are still refusing to meet Dortmund's demand for £108m.
