Jadon Sancho’s agent met Manchester United officials during the transfer window, according to Borussia Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc.
19-year-old Sancho has been linked with United as well as a host of European clubs following two successful seasons at Dortmund, in which he has scored 17 goals and made 27 assists in 60 appearances.

In August, Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke revealed he turned down an approach for the England international from a “super club” earlier this year.
“A hot topic right now is Sancho and Manchester United,” Zorc said in the Amazon Prime documentary ‘Inside Borussia Dortmund’ which reviews the 2018/19 season.
“Both his discussions with the club and mine with the agent, a meeting did take place. Manchester United invited the agent.
“According to what I know, the agent told the club that no matter how much money they offer, we won’t let him go this summer.

“The player also has no intention of taking that step this summer .”
The teenager, who scored two goals in two first-half minutes for England during their 5-3 victory over Kosovo, agreed a contract extension last year at the Westfalenstadion, until 2022.
But according to the Independent, Manchester United’s mega bid of €100m ($160m) still wasn’t enough to lure the City academy graduate to Old Trafford.
While the Bundesliga powerhouse had made it crystal clear that Sancho wasn’t for sale, it’s understood the Premier League giants had the bid in the works — before it was quickly shut down.
Sancho arrived at the North Rhine-Westphalia club in 2017 in a £7m ($12.5m) move from Manchester City and has established himself as one of football’s brightest young stars.
The former City youngster has three goals in five appearances for Dortmund so far this term in all competitions and is currently joint-top of the 2019/20 Bundesliga assists chart.
