Manchester United are lining up a move for Barcelona flop Ousmane Dembele should they fail to sign Jadon Sancho this summer, according to reports.
United's £108million pursuit of the England star appeared all but over after the Bundesliga giants insisted Sancho will play for them next season.
Dortmund had set a deadline of Monday for United to reach an agreement with them, but the club's chief Michael Zorc insisted United have no chance of signing Sancho now after he jetted off with his team-mates to Switzerland for a pre-season training camp.

Sancho is reportedly keen on a move to Old Trafford but United chiefs will turn their attention to Dembele should they fail to agree on a deal for the 20-year-old, according to ESPN.
ESPN are reporting that United have held 'informal talks' with Barcelona over a move for the French winger, who has two years left on his current deal.
The 23-year-old has endured a disappointing three years at the Nou Camp and has not played a competitive match since November after undergoing surgery on his hamstring in February.sonos sonos One (Gen 2) - Voice Controlled Smart Speaker with
