Manchester United’s potential alternative to Jadon Sancho – David Brooks – will be blocked from leaving Bournemouth before the end of the domestic transfer window, according to Football Insider.
Brooks has been gathering attention from throughout the Premier League this summer.
Following Bournemouth’s relegation to the Championship last summer, the winger was expected to be one of the first players to leave the Vitality Stadium.
Nathan Ake, Callum Wilson, Aaron Ramsdale and Ryan Fraser have already departed, and they could be ready to lose more players this week.
The domestic transfer window is still open for teams in the Premier League and the EFL to do business until October 16th.

Josh King is believed to be a target for West Ham, but by the sounds of it he could be the final player to leave the Cherries.
Football Insider claimed on Thursday that Bournemouth won’t be letting Brooks leave the club, despite interest in his services from the Red Devils and Sheffield United.
United were said to be eager to sign Brooks as an alternative for Sancho, after they failed to agree a deal with Borussia Dortmund for the 20-year-old.
He was viewed as a significantly cheaper option, given Sancho’s asking price of £108million, with United at one point claimed to be lining up a bid in the region of £50m.

On deadline day, United pulled the trigger on a deal to sign Atalanta winger Amad Traore.
They also concluded a deal to sign Facundo Pellistri, with the 18-year-old set to join the first-team squad immediately.
And United midfielder Nemanja Matic praised the club’s transfer business, after seeing Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles follow Pellistri and Traore to Old Trafford.
“It’s always good when we have additions to the team,” Matic said.

“I played against [Cavani] a few times. A great player, a great player. Very experienced.
“He scores goals, always. So I hope he will continue to do the same job for us.”
