24/05/2021: According to Bild (as cited by Sport Witness), United have been handed a warning in their pursuit of the winger as failure to act decisively could result in them missing out on this particular signing to either Chelsea or Liverpool.

26/05/2021: As per a fresh report by Bild,it has been revealed that Dortmund will seemingly be willing to accept an offer in the region of €95m (£82m) for Sancho amid interest from United.

Whilst the winger wants to resolve his future in the coming weeks, Die Borussen are reportedly willing to wait until after the European Championship to strike up a deal with a potential suitor.

31/05/2021: Despite United being heavily linked with a move, German outlet Sport1 (as cited by The Sun) has revealed that they have yet to submit a formal bid for the winger.

01/06/2021: In a fresh update concerning Sancho’s future, The United Stand have reported that the Red Devils are now expected to make a bid for the winger in the coming days as they look to resolve this particular transfer saga.

However, the Red Devils have yet to decide what approach to take in terms of a bid as they are currently unwilling to meet Dortmund’s valuation.

03/06/2021: Speaking on the latest episode of his Here We Go podcast, Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Liverpool have not been in contact with Dortmund over a potential move for Sancho.

The Italian journalist also admitted that the Reds would have to sell one of their star players in order to fund a deal.

04/06/2021: As per a fresh report by The Athletic, United are increasingly confident that they will be able to finally bring Sancho to Old Trafford.

However, Dortmund are seemingly reluctant to accept an offer of £80m for the winger from the Red Devils as they want £20m in add-ons to be included in this particular deal.

11/06/2021: According to Sky Sports, United and Dortmund are now £11m apart in terms of this aforementioned valuation.

Whilst the Red Devils have now reportedly agreed personal terms with Sancho over a proposed five-year deal, they had a £67m bid rejected earlier this week.
