Manchester United’s move for Jadon Sancho is in danger of collapsing with Borussia Dortmund increasingly bemused by their approach to the negotiations.
Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc bullishly claimed on Monday that Sancho will play for the Bundesliga side this season and the decision was final.

Dortmund have been firm from the outset in their demand for a fee of £108m
