Journalist claims Sancho misses BVB match because star is pushing for Manchester United transfer

Jadon Sancho is pushing for a move to Manchester United, according to reports in Norway.

Dagbladet reporter Fredrik A. Nerskar Filtvedt claims the reason Sancho hasn’t travelled with Borussia Dortmund for their match against Bayern Munich is not due to illness, instead it is about the player now trying to force a transfer to United.

However, Dortmund deny this and claim Sancho is unwell, as per The Metro.

The journalist claims to have tried to get a response on the matter from Sancho’s agent Emeka Obasi without answer.

Filtvedt adds that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had new conversations with Sancho earlier this week, but there is still distance between United and Dortmund over valuations.

Dagblabet understands Sancho’s representatives see the deal being a 50/50 scenario right now.

Last night our Sancho update provided information about United’s stance on the transfer. The club will not be forced to overpay for a talent they is being unrealistically priced out of a move to Old Trafford.

But there comes a time when United must cut their losses and sign the star the manager wants to build his new team around.
