The winger, who left Manchester City for £7million in 2017, is reportedly valued at more than £100m by the club.
Man United remain the frontrunners for the forward’s signature, with Ole Gunnar Soslkjaer keen to reopen talks next summer.
Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke revealed earlier this week that they recently rejected an approach for the winger.
He told Ruhr Nachrichten (via the MEN): “A chief of one of the super clubs asked me back in spring if there was a chance [to sign Sancho] but I told him straight away he should forget about it and he never contacted me again.
“He knew I meant what I said.”
