Journalist Duncan Castles added: “When you have Man United briefing that they are not prepared to pay anything like the fee that Dortmund have made clear they want for that player, that would suggest actually it’s going to get thrown out rather than resolved.

“It’s definitely the priority position for Manchester United. Jadon Sancho is their preferred target for that role.
“But they are discussing other individuals. Jack Grealish is a possibility to come in.
“There is an interest in Adama Traore but I do not see them going to the levels Wolves are asking, for that player. It’s a similar level to what Dortmund are asking.”
