MANCHESTER UNITED have MISSED the deadline to sign Jadon Sancho.
And the England ace has been named in Borussia Dortmund’s pre-season squad and is flying to Switzerland with them as a result.
The Bundesliga side previously told United they wanted an agreement in place by August 10.
But until now the Red Devils have refused to meet their £108million asking price.
And as of this morning, nothing had been confirmed and Dortmund announced the winger was part of their squad travelling to Switzerland to prepare for next season.
Lucien Favre will put his players through their paces at a training camp in the Swiss town of Bad Ragaz.
And Sancho was pictured with his teammates preparing to jet off from Germany this morning.
He was seen in a boarding queue with a facemask covering his mouth and headphones in as onlookers took photos of the group of stars.
United are currently in Germany to complete their Europa League campaign.
And they are understood to see the Dortmund’s deadline as meaningless with the transfer window open until October 5.
On Saturday SunSport reported meeting the eye-watering price tag for Sancho might lead to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side potentially blowing their entire transfer kitty on one player.
Although it would make him one of German football’s highest earners, it is still dwarfed by the £350k-a-week he is likely to get at Old Trafford.
Sancho was spotted at a house party in the UK with rap stars Krept and Konan at the weekend which sent United fans into a frenzy.
But Dortmund posted a statement confirming they were happy for the 20-year-old to be in England.
Communications chief Sascha Fligge said: “It’s common and fine for players to go home before a training camp if they’re not risky.
“The same goes for Jadon.
“From our point of view, the pictures that have been shown to us so far do not violate.”
