REVEALED: United failed with late move to sign Julian Brandt ahead of Dortmund

Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has suffered his very first failure of the summer window by making a last-ditch attempt to sign Julian Brandt, according to reports.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to strengthen his attacking area and United are close to securing a £15 million deal to sign Swansea City star Daniel James.

United are also planning to submit an opening bid to Newcastle United for their 21-year-old midfielder Sean Longstaff.

But according to Manchester Evening News, Manchester United also made an approach to Bayer Leverkusen to find out the possibility of signing Brandt.

But United were unfortunately told that the Germany international had already agreed a deal to move to Borussia Dortmund.

And on Wednesday, Borussia Dortmund confirmed the signing of Julian Brandt in a €25m (£22.1m) deal. United have already lost out in their attempt to sign Jadon Sancho from Dortmund.

The club were ready to spend up to £100m to sign the England international but a failure to secure Champions League football for next campaign has put Sancho off a transfer to Old Trafford.
