Jadon Sancho has been named in Borussia Dortmund’s pre-season squad and he jets out with other team-mates to their Swiss base, SunSport reports.
Recall that Manchester United were pressured to complete the signing of Sancho by August 10 or they should just forget the transfer deal.
The German club told the Red Devils to bring £108m (about N52billion) for the 20-year-old winger but United are hoping they could land the player for a lesser fee as negotiations continue.
The Bundesliga giants are concerned that the transfer speculation of the player may eventually have a negative impact on the club as they are also keen on finding a replacement.
According to German outlet Bild, Dortmund held all the cards by setting a deadline, putting pressure on United to make their minds up over Sancho's future.
Former City starlet, Sancho, was expected to sign a five-year deal in the red half of Manchester worth a lucrative £140,000-a-week.
That is then likely to increase to £200,000-a-week over the course of his deal, but as at the date of the deadline, nothing has been agreed.
On August 10, Dortmund announced the winger was part of their squad travelling to Switzerland to prepare for next season.
And Sancho was pictured with his teammates preparing to jet off from Germany this morning.
He was seen in a check-in queue with a facemask covering his mouth and headphones in as onlookers took photos of the group of stars.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Stale Solbakken is still basking in euphoria over FC Copenhagen’s qualification for the Europa League quarterfinal after leading the side to defeat Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir.
The manager is full of delight and now ready to face favourites Manchester United in the quarterfinal of this season’s competition and has urged his players to go all out against the Red Devils.
Manchester United overcame LASK 7-1 on aggregates to progress to the last eight with Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial adding to the 5-0 first leg win despite Philipp Wiesinger opening the scoring.
