Manchester United miss deadline set by Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of Jadon Sancho.
The German outfit put August 10 as the deadline for a deal going through for United’s top summer transfer target.
Dortmund have left for pre-season training camp in Switzerland which halts the plans for the signing happening.
They have made clear a willingness to sell Sancho to United though have stuck firm on a £108million valuation – of which United have so far failed to meet – and the 20-year-old has now been included in Dortmund’s squad for their pre-season tour this week.

Dortmund chiefs communicated to the Old Trafford hierarchy that they had until August 10 to trim the edges of a deal and have everything in place, ahead of Lucien Favre’s senior squad reconvening for pre-season preparations and planning for the campaign ahead, and now a potential deal is on the rocks.
Dortmund’s first stage of pre-season is taking place at the five-star Grand Resort Bad Ragaz in Switzerland and is a training camp lasting eight days.
While in Switzerland, the German giants will play two warm-up games, on Wednesday against SCR Altach and on Sunday against Austria Vienna.
