‘We don’t need to sell!’: Manchester United are dealt ANOTHER blow to their hopes of signing £108m Jadon Sancho as Borussia Dortmund tell them they don’t need the cash despite club accounts revealing £45m losses

Manchester United have been issued a hands-off warning from Borussia Dortmund over their star winger Jadon Sancho, with the club’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke insisting they do not need to sell him to balance the books.

Sancho is United’s No 1 target this summer but the clubs have been at loggerheads over Dortmund’s £108million asking price.

Dortmund have announced a club loss of £45m for this season – with the coronavirus pandemic the prime culprit for this deficit.

Speaking about Sancho, Watzke said: ‘We weren’t in a situation where we had to sell at any cost.’

And expanding about the club’s financial situation he continued: ‘We made three-digit million profits and wrote deep black numbers. Then corona came and everything changed a little.

‘We have succeeded in generating such a high level of liquidity that we can withstand this pandemic for a very long time.’
