United have secured the services of Donny van de Beek and are looking to make Sancho their next signing of the transfer window, which shuts down on October 5.

Lucien Favre has confirmed Manchester United target Jadon Sancho will continue plying his trade at Borussia Dortmund.

Sancho has been constantly linked with a move to Premier League giants United over the last few months but Favre insists the England winger is going nowhere.

Sancho scored 17 goals and registered 16 assists in the Bundesliga last season

"We need him, no question. Everyone was happy he stayed," Favre told Swiss news agency Keystone-SDA. "We don't need to talk long about his qualities – they are enormous.

"He scores and sets up a lot of goals and can often make all the difference, but there are some details that Sancho needs to improve. That is quite normal for a 20-year-old."
