One Twitter user wrote: "So Sancho was 'sick'. But he trained.. every german reporter expected him to start. yet he isn't in the squad at all."
A second tweeted: "No Sancho. He's finally leaving these bottlers."
A third added: "You are telling me there's still hope."
But they've have failed to stump up the cash with Dortmund demanding a fee of £108 million.
United are thought to be keeping an eye on Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele should they fail to lure Sancho back to England.
