German journalist Raphael Honigstein told the Transfer Talk podcast:
“As the deadline passed, United got into the illusion that prices would fall. “But if anything, it has entrenched Dortmund's position that makes him unable to leave.
“Once they make it public, a reputation aspect also appears. Once you tell your team, your manager and the general public that he won't leave, it's almost impossible to climb down.
“United either didn't want or couldn't fulfill the deal under Dortmund terms, and then spent two months playing a game of poker with someone who wasn't even at the table.
“It shows a lack of understanding of Dortmund's perspective and hurts them so much that, if you want to chase picks B, C, and D, they should do it from August 10, not. September 10th or October 1st.
"They have run out of time and the surprise effect of chasing Sancho the way they did is hurting them."
Manchester United will return to Sancho next year, although unlike this transfer window they will not have made a clear step forward in signing him. Fun88 According to The Independent, Liverpool will be able to buy Sancho next year and Klopp is a huge fan he has spoken to him this year and has always been on the edge of negotiations with Manchester United.
Klopp has always believed he will go to Old Trafford, but now he is not urging his bosses to join the race - and Sancho is arguably excited about the prospect of coming to Anfield.
Bayern Munich will also be interested, they claim, meaning Manchester United's defeat at this time could be even more than seeing their most desired squad in rival colors.

United manager Mark Molesley chose not to call striker Charlie Kelman for tonight's EFL Trophy clash with Portsmouth amid interest of interest from Queens Park Rangers.
The Championship club is said to still be interested in the 18-year-old striker.
But Blues boss Mark Molesley didn't give away too much in post-match interview.
“Charlie was actively training and practicing today,” said Molesley.
"It's out of my control and out of my control.
" We'll see what the rest of the week will bring, but I'm concerned he's a Southend player and I look forward to seeing him. There is practice on Thursday and Friday. "
And when asked if Kelman will continue playing for the Blues, Molesley added:" Absolutely, unless I was told otherwise. It would be nice to have him. ”
Kelman was also out of the squad for Saturday's 1-1 draw at Crawley Town.
