Manchester United have seen 'hopes of signing £100million Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho collapse' due to the club's failure to secure Champions League football for next season.

The talented 19-year-old has been a revelation since moving to Germany and quickly emerged as United's top target for this summer's transfer window. 

But according to the Independent, United's sixth-placed finish and the manner of recent performances has 'ended any prospect of a deal' this summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had identified the 19-year-old as a top target for his rebuild this summer

Sancho has been a regular in Lucien Favre's Borussia Dortmund side since joining from Manchester City and has gone on to establish himself as a member of Gareth Southgate's England squad. 

The player, according to the report, is believed to have reservations about a switch to United given the turbulence in the squad at the end of the season as they finished sixth, securing Europa League football. 

Dortmund are pushing Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga title and Sancho has been one of the key men for the yellow and black, leading to a lengthy list of suitors including Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

Earlier this month, Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc reinforced that the winger will be staying put.

'No, we did not receive anything [an offer],' he told Sky Sports. 'We do not expect anything and we do not want anything, because he is on our plans. He will play for Borussia Dortmund next season. Nobody needs to get in touch.'

United appear to have turned attentions to Swansea City winger Daniel James and look to be closing in on a move for him. 

Sportsmail revealed last week that United had emerged as frontrunners to sign the speedy and exciting Welsh winger. 

Talks have progressed to the point that there are now only a few minor details left to be sorted out before a package worth in the region of £10m is agreed between the clubs.

James has caught United's eye after enjoying a breakthrough season at Swansea, making 38 appearances, scoring five times and setting up 10 goals.

He has also broken into the Wales set up during this campaign, playing twice for former United winger Ryan Giggs' senior side and scoring on his competitive home debut against Slovakia.

James is capable of playing on either flank and through the middle but United have earmarked him for a right-wing role and made specific checks on his suitability for the position during their enquiries.
