The Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc openly discusses the ‘hot topic’ of United’s interest in the Amazon documentary Inside Borussia Dortmund. United met the German club’s officials last summer, got short shrift and swiftly moved onto Daniel James; earmarked as a cheaper fall-back option to Sancho.
