Jadon Sancho is still on the radar of Premier League club Manchester United and now latest reports have it that the Red Devils are preparing to launch a last minute bid for him.
Borussia Dortmund earlier gave United an August 10 deadline to complete the deal or forget it, but United failed to come up with the demanded £108million.
Manchester United had earlier agreed terms with the player personally, but Dortmund insist that the youngster is not for sale.
As well as taking a look at Watford ace Ismaila Sarr, the Red Devils had hoped to sign Gareth Bale who has sealed a loan deal to Tottenham.
Now, United have turned their attention back to Sancho and will test Dortmund's mettle with an 11th-hour bid, just before the window closes on October 5.
Meanwhile, Gareth Bale has sealed loan switch to his former club Tottenham for £12million, with reports that the contract could eventually extend for a further year.
The Welshman received heroic welcome by the club fans when he arrived at their training ground on Friday, September 18 as he seals his move from Real Madrid.
The North London club has agreed to pay a percentage of his wages in a bargain deal which amounts to around £12million for the season — and they will officially confirm it.
Recall that Bale left Spurs in 2013 for a then world record of £86million and now at 31, he has returned to the club seven years later.
However, Legit.ng earlier reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is staring at a possible squad selection headache ahead of Man United's Premier League opener against Crystal Palace.
United had a delayed start to the season following their extended engagements in the Europa League last season.
They are now due to kick off their new season with a home clash against Palace on Saturday, September 19.
The Red Devils will be keen to kick off their campaign on a winning note but could be forced to do it without a number of players.
