'You love to see it' - Dortmund taunt Man Utd over stalled Sancho transfer on social media

Borussia Dortmund have taunted Manchester United over their chase for Jadon Sancho by posting a picture of the smiling England international on social media.

The Germansset their own unofficial deadline of August 10 on United's pursuit of Sancho, and have been insistent that if a transfer was not confirmed by that date then the 21-year-old would be staying.

However, Goal can confirm the Red Devils are refusing to give up on their number one transfer target but are frustratedat the pace of discussions, which are being managed -at Dortmund’s request - byan independent agent.

United believe that the August 10 deadline set by Dortmund was merely arbitrary andthey still believe a deal can be agreed before the transfer window closes on October 5.

Dortmund's tweet also prompted plenty of response, both from jubilant fans of the German side and frustrated fans of the Premier League club.

It is understood Sancho is keen on a move to Old Trafford but player wages and agent fees continue to pose a problem in negotiations.

Unitedare wary of making the same mistake they did with Alexis Sanchez, whenhis huge £560,000-a-week wages ended up ripping up the whole salary structure at the club.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has repeatedly warned it will "not be business as usual in this summer’s window", with United being forced to reassess the market despite their huge wealth.

TheRed Devils are willing to walk away should it prove too difficult to come to a compromise on price,with other players such asBayern Munich's Kingsley Coman seen as alternatives.

United progressed to the Europa League semi-finals on Monday night with a 1-0 extra-time win over Copenhagen in Cologne.

Bruno Fernandes scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in a match that United dominated butstruggled to take their chances.
