According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United have not submitted a bid for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho so far.
As far as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is concerned, Sancho is his top priority, as he feels he is the signing he needs to revamp the Red Devils.
Romano’s reply to a fan confirms a report from The Telegraph’s James Ducker, who revealed the two sides haven’t even held formal talks as of yet.
Sancho, 20, has scored 20 goals and supplied 18 assists in all competitions at the time of writing (via WhoScored).
Failing to sign the Englishman would be a bitter blow for Solskjaer, as he missed out on signing Erling Braut Haaland from RB Salzburg, who moved to the Signal Iduna Park. Similarly, Ed Woodward will not want to make another mistake, as he failed to sign Cesc Fabregas or Gareth Bale and had to resort to signing Marouane Fellaini instead.
Naturally, many United fans slammed the “shocker” on social media, with one supporter tweeting “Woodward out,” and another admonishing the “terrible” news on Twitter.

So while we're dithering over Sancho Chelsea have bought Werner and are close to Havertz. Since Gill retired our business has been a joke

What is taking us so long? Sack Ed honestly, we’ve gone downhill since Gill left. So tired of this constant rumour mill, waiting for something concrete but won’t hold my breath. Terrible tactics once again, we’ve been interested in him for so long… CMON ED
