Manchester United boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer has again refused to comment on persistent speculation linking the club with Jadon Sancho, while Borussia Dortmund's head of the licensed player division, Sebastian Kehl, insists no offers have been made.
The Bundesliga season drew to a close on Saturday with Die Borussen finishing in second place, largely aided by Sancho's staggering return of 17 goals and 17 assists in his 32 top flight outings.

Solid performance from the team!! Delighted to get my first career hat trick, a bittersweet moment personally as there are more important things going on in the world today that we must address and help make a change. We shouldn't fear speaking out for what's right, we have to come together as one & fight for justice. We are stronger together! ❤️ #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd ??
90min has, as far back as September last year, revealed that United are 'confident' they can secure Sancho's signature ahead of the 2020/21 season, with the most recent update only differing slightly in that they won't pay over £100m for him - a £20m decrease on their previous maximum outlay - while Dortmund are trying to tie him down on a new double-your-money contract.
Now, in the latest public comment from a high ranking Dortmund official, former defensive midfielder Kehl has reiterated that no offers have been received for Sancho, and he expects the England international to remain in Germany.
“We expect Jadon to play with BVB next season and we’re all very happy with the quality that he brings to our side and the difference that he can make,” he told Sport Buzzer.
Those comments are in stark contradiction to the words of manager Lucien Favre, however, with the Swiss boss previously admitting that it was 'possible' that Sancho could leave in the off-season.
Solskjaer, meanwhile, has been asked time and time again whether United will make a bid for the former Manchester City academy graduate, and that question was once more put to him by former international teammate Jan Aage Fjortoft, now of Viasport.
But the Red Devils refused to comment one way or the other, remarking "I'm good at math, but I can't answer that question, Jan Aage. There are many good footballers on many teams."
