United had been trying to sign the England winger for a long time, but Dortmund were unwilling to pay the € 120m transfer fee they wanted. The German club gave United a tough deadline of 10 August to complete their assessment, but it came without presenting a satisfactory bid.
Sancho lives in Dortmund, where he has made four appearances so far this season, most recently on Saturday in Hoffheim (Re-stream on ESPN + in the US).
“Probably a club that wanted it wrong and believed we were ready to compromise,” Watzke told German broadcaster JDF. “We had a clear line, and next summer we would have it.
“In this day and age you can never say that a player is completely dishonest. But it is also absolutely clear that we do not want to give up on anyone.”
Sencho’s contract at Westfallenstadion lasts until 2023, meaning Dortmund will still be in a position of strength in any negotiations on a move for the next summer of 20 years.
