Borussia Dortmund have reportedly rejected yet another bid for Jadon Sancho, leaving Manchester United in the lurch.
Last week, Daily Star Sport understood the Red Devils were set to make a £90m offer, with a slice of the fee being paid in add-ons.
Now, Sky Sports are reporting that Dortmund have rejected a bid from United, with the figures reported as €80m (£73m) and a further €20m (£18m).
The German club have been unrelenting in their determination to keep the player beyond the summer.
It all began on August 9, when Dortmund told United they had missed the opportunity to land the player, revealing he had penned a contract extension.
Multiple board members have since gone on the record to announce Sancho will be a Dortmund player after the October 5 deadline.
Team-mates have spoken about the matter, with the 21-year-old clearly enjoying his football since the restart.
Previously it was expected a bid of £108m would suffice for United this summer.
But it now appears that Dortmund's stance is clear as day – Sancho is not for sale in the coming week.
Sancho has not travelled with Borussia Dortmund for their Super Cup clash with Bayern Munich.
The England international has been left at home, along with Roman Burki.
Dortmund this evening tweeted: "Jadon Sancho and Roman Bürki will not fly to Munich as a result of respiratory infections. Additionally, both players tested negatively for COVID-19 yesterday."
And speaking earlier today, team-mate Marco Reus explained why Sancho would be staying put for another season.
"For us players that was great news. We all were happy that he will be with us for the season," he said.

"Also because he delivers scorer points for the team. Goals, assists – in the end that translates to a lot of points.
"He is an essential player for us. If he will be as great of a player as (Cristiano) Ronaldo, time will tell.
"He needs a little bit of time, many experiences.
"There will surely be phases in his career where things will not go as smoothly as now, and we will see how he is going to deal with something like that. But I believe that he has the confidence and of course the quality to do that."
