Borussia Dortmund sports director Sebastian Kehl has reaffirmed that Manchester United target Jadon Sancho will not be sold during the current transfer window.
The Red Devils have still been attempting to negotiate a deal, but United's hopes of landing the former Manchester City youngster have dwindled even further following a statement released by Kehl.
The statement read: "He is our player - and he will stay. It was an important statement from the club, because we have a certain responsibility."
The England international's future has been the talk of the summer amid speculation surrounding a potential move to United, although Kehl's colleague Michael Zorc previously insisted that Sancho would be staying put at the Westfalenstadion.
Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on adding a wide player to his side, with Sancho their top target.
They have, however, started exploring options as the saga drags on, with the likes of Douglas Costa and Ivan Perisic touted as possible targets.
Donny van de Beek is the only new arrival this summer, despite early reports that the club will add a minimum of four players.
