Man Utd transfer target Jadon Sancho not in Borussia Dortmund squad AGAIN due to 'illness' as deadline day looms

JADON SANCHO has been left out of Borussia Dortmund's squad AGAIN ahead of their clash against Freiburg due to 'illness'.

The England starlet missed training on Thursday, but reportedly was involved in 'light training' on Friday.

Sancho is believed to be chasing a move to Manchester United before the transfer window closes on Monday.

The 20-year-old was also missing for the German Supercup final defeat against Bayern Munich on Wednesday due to a ‘respiratory infection’.

Dortmund confirmed on Saturday that is was the same issue which has ruled the winger out of the Freiburg game.

Keeper Roman Burki is also missing for the Bundesliga giants with a similar infection, but the club have confirmed both players have tested negative for coronavirus.

Sancho's continued absence will ramp up speculation that United will make a last-ditch attempt to take him back to England before Monday's deadline.

According to Norwegian outlet Dagbladet, the 20-year-old is not involved today because of the speculation surrounding a move to Old Trafford.

SunSport exclusively revealed that Sancho believes he WILL be a United player before the transfer window closes on Monday.

The England winger, 20, wants his top advisors to "pull out all the stops" to secure his move to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund.

Sources say Dortmund are resigned to losing the player, despite publicly being confident he will stick around.

One said: "He wants this deal done.

"He's told his agent and various advisors to do all they can to make it happen.

"They are pushing for him."

Dortmund are said to want a minimum of £80million up front, plus add-ons.

Sources close to the long-running transfer saga reckon it could be completed for £95m, lower than Dortmund's £108m asking price.
