Manchester United have reportedly not given up on signing Jadon Sancho and intend to test Borussia Dortmund's resolve with an offer this week.
The England international has been left out of Dortmund's squad for Wednesday's DFL-Supercup clash with Bayern Munich amid ongoing links with a switch to Old Trafford.
BVB have put his absence down to a respiratory infection, but the club are now bracing themselves for an official approach.
After months of speculation, Sky Sports News claims that United will step forward with a £91.3m bid for Sancho, which they hope will be enough to conclude a deal.
However, Dortmund have made clear that they value the 20-year-old at £108m and they are expected to knock back the Red Devils' offer.
