Man United have failed with last minute bid to sign 28-year-old Chelsea star

September 13, 2017

Jose Mourinho made a deadline day offer for Chelsea winger Willian, according to stories.

Mourinho and Manchester United were close yesterday as their rivals all made moves in the transfer market.

However, The Sun says Man United did make a bold last-gasp offer to take Willian to Old Trafford.

The offer was turned down though, with Antonio Conte landing Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta following the deadline had gone.

Meanwhile, Manchester City teenager Jadon Sancho has moved to Borussia Dortmund despite interest from Arsenal and Manchester United.

The youngster opted to leave the Etihad amid concerns of getting first-team chances under Pep Guardiola, and he will now attempt his hand at playing abroad.

Sancho has received Ousmane Dembele’s No. 7 shirt after the attacker secured a mega £95million transfer to Barcelona and the footballer of the competition at the European Under-17 Championships for England will wish to make his mark in Germany.

“We are very pleased that Jadon Sancho, who is currently one of the greatest talents in European football, will play at BVB,” – Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc claimed.

“We are convinced that we can help this very young player continue to develop his game and become a real asset for our team.”

It’s thought Sancho rejected a deal worth £30,000-a-week with Pep Guardiola’s men to complete a £8m switch away.
