But boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still wants to bolster his attacking options as he bids to build a squad to match that of his own glory filled playing days.
Solskjaer was one of the attacking riches Sir Alex Ferguson had to pick from — with Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole and Teddy Sheringham — during the 1998-99 Treble season.
Ex-Manchester City youth player Sancho, 20, fits Solskjaer’s plans for a young vibrant team going into the future.
Sancho hit 17 goals and provided 16 assists in the Bundesliga as Dortmund finished runners-up to Bayern Munich.
While Sancho could be on his way to Old Trafford, Jesse Lingard looks to be on his way to Milan.
Both AC Milan and Inter want the midfielder, 27, who has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford.
Lingard has started only once since the season restarted — the FA Cup quarter-final win at Norwich.
Inter are also urgently looking at ways to extend Alexis Sanchez’s stay beyond the summer.
The Chilean, 31, scored and was man of the match in their 4-0 win at SPAL on Thursday night.
However he is due to return to parent club United once the Italian season ends early next month.
Inter need to find at least £20m to make the move permanent but they may ask to extend his loan by a further 12 months with a firm commitment to buy.
