MANCHESTER UNITED'S hopes of signing Jadon Sancho are dwindling with his Borussia Dortmund team-mates convinced he will stay another season, according to reports.
Transfer interest in the England winger has cooled in recent weeks with the two clubs struggling to agree on a fee.
Dortmund want £108million for the 20-year-old but United are not prepared to stump up the full amount.

Sancho is eager for a move back to the Premier League but will not force his exit from the Bundesliga club.
He has returned to pre-season training and boss Lucian Favre is including him in his first choice attack alongside Erling Haaland and Thorgan Hazard.
According to the Telegraph, he has told his team-mates he is in no rush to move and a switch next summer is looking increasingly likely.
The transfer window closes in six weeks time and United appear happy to play the long game and call Dortmund's bluff for now.
The Athletic write how owner Joel Glazer is preventing the deal being done because he has reservations about major spending in the current climate.
Such a position has led to United looking at Bournemouth's David Brooks as a cheaper alternative to Sancho.
The 23-year-old is valued at £40m and United are believed to be long-term admirers of the Wales star.
Solskjaer remains keen on Jack Grealish too, and reports have claimed United would offer Sergio Romero as part of a deal to land the Aston Villa playmaker.
